Love a soft, fluffy pizza base? You’re in luck! Our limited-edition biga dough balls are perfect for people who prefer an airier, mellower crust. They’re a bit less tangy than our regular sourdough balls and they’re easy to work with, rise like a dream and bake up beautifully in a hot-hot pizza oven.

So, what is biga and where does it come from? Back in the 19th century, many Italian bakers swapped sourdough starter for commercial yeast to speed up the bread-making process. The catch? Less flavour. Bakers came up with biga to recapture the “yum” factor.

Biga begins as a thick, dry mixture made of baker’s yeast, flour and water. Unlike sourdough, every batch starts with its own yeasty preferment, which develops a nutty flavour as it ferments. Ooni Ambassadors like Julian Guy (@pizzaislovely) use biga as a base for all kinds of delicious pizza recipes. To see the biga-making process from start to finish, watch Julian’s video here.

Biga is a more robust dough than sourdough, so it’s ideal for both beginners and expert pizza makers. Our dough balls are easy to stretch and produce big, airy pizza crusts that are digestible and delicious — think Canotto-style crusts.

Ready to find out if biga is better? Order a pack of our frozen biga dough balls and taste for yourself!
