    • Knead for 3 minutes, then let rest covered for another 10 minutes.
    • Repeat the kneading and resting for another 3 minutes and 10 minutes.
    • Perform folds and let rest in a bowl for 20 minutes, repeat folds and rest another 20 minutes.
    • After folding, shape the dough into a smooth, tight ball.
    • Let rise in an oiled bowl until doubled in size.
    • Dust with flour, bring the edges to the center, and shape into a ball.
    • Flip and seal well, then transfer to a floured proofing basket and cover with a cloth.
