4. Pre-Shape and Bench Rise
Punch down the dough, then turn it out onto a lightly floured counter. Use a bench scraper to divide the dough into 3 equal pieces.
Working with one piece of dough at a time, press down into a rectangle with a long side facing you. Fold the two short sides inward so that they meet in the middle. Press down to seal. Starting from the top edge, roll the dough into a tight cylinder. Roll on the counter a few times to seal, then let rest, seam-side down and covered with plastic, for 20 to 60 minutes, depending on your schedule.
