How do I get crusty rolls?
To obtain crusty pistolets / rolls, you must work with flour with a high protein content. The place where the wheat is grown determines the quality of the wheat from which the flour is made. A better flour is obtained by the correct mixture of wheat. Think of the beautiful crispy French baguette. The kneading process is also very important: a very powerful kneading with ice-cold water or ice chips ensures that the dough does not get too hot and the gluten strands develop optimally.
Steam must be present when the pistolets /rolls are placed in the oven. This only at the beginning of the baking process. have a preheated tray at the bottom of the oven and add a cup of boiling water to the tray when placing your rolls in the oven.
