WHAT IS A BIGA? AND WHY DOES IT TASTE SOOOOOO GOOD! Short answer: 72 hours. 900 degrees. 90 seconds. A biga is technically the pre-fermented starter dough developed by Italian bakers centuries ago to ferment their dough long before commercial yeast was available at the local grocery store. A biga is made with a small amount of water, wheat flour, and wild yeast that occurs naturally in the air all around us. It is fermented over several hours and added to a larger batch of unleavened dough, and then more fermenting occurs. At Bigalora, this whole process takes 72 hours before our dough is ready for your pizza.

longer answer:

It took us two years to perfect our biga technique, and it’s now a daily ritual that our skilled bakers perform. But each bite confirms that this slow, artisanal process is so worth the effort. The earthy, slightly nutty flavor, the satisfying, chewy texture, and the airiness of our pizza dough are all a result of the biga process. And because we use no commercial yeast or sugars, a Bigalora pizza reflects our passion for making healthy, high-quality food that we would feed to our own family. After 72 hours in the making, all that’s required is firing up a wood burning oven to 900 degrees and baking to a pleasant char for 90 seconds. So….

Short answer (again):

72 hours. 900 degrees. 90 seconds.
