The most common method for proofing dough in a pizza kitchen is to use several dough boxes stacked one atop the other. Several small dough balls can be placed inside the boxes and allowed to rise overnight and be ready for the next day’s rush. When selecting a dough box for your establishment, you will want to consider the overall size of the box. This will give you an idea of how many dough balls you can place inside. Be sure that you take into account the fact that the dough will double in size by the time it is done proofing. Depending on the size of your dough and the box you use, you should be able to fit between two and three dozen individual dough balls.
The stackability of the dough boxes means you can store several levels of dough in one small space, and you will only need one lid, for the top box. Obviously you will want to use the same size containers from one manufacturer. Mixing and matching pans and brands will not guarantee a tight seal.
