Bread & Pizza Dough
Our Blue Heaven Leaven loaves are hand built with high quality ingredients and many hours of loving labor. The ingredients are simple and wholesome: organic flours, water, and salt. We never use additives or preservatives. All of our breads are GMO free. The dough is mixed and then gently hand folded periodically while the dough ferments. The loaves & rolls are then hand shaped and proofed at cold temperatures to maximize the depth of flavors and digestibility of the bread. The loaves are finally baked in a hearth oven to give us just the right crust and crumb.
We offer our loaves finish baked or par baked (partially baked) and ready for you to bake off in your restaurant or home kitchen.
More about our Blue Heaven Leaven
Blue Heaven Leaven is our signature bread. Combining organic flour with natural leaven (local wild yeast + beneficial bacteria) & over 72 hrs of fermentation, our Blue Heaven Leaven is a wonderfully balanced bread. It is easy to digest, & deeply satisfying to eat. The long cold fermentation and the cold proofing techniques we employ bring out a complexity of flavor from the rye and wheat flours that we are particularly fond of. The long fermentation also makes the bread much more digestible due to the time allowed for the natural enzymes in the flours to do their work. This means that the bread is also healthier because of the increased availability of nutrients. Blue Heaven Leaven keeps especially well, again due to the natural leaven.
