Adjust mixer to #2 speed; mix for 3 minutes. Remove dough from mixer; allow to rest on flour-dusted wood surface. Cover dough with damp towel; allow to rest 1 hour. Remove towel; knead dough by hand for 5 minutes. Scale dough into 10-oz. balls. Place dough balls in plastic bins, with 3-inch space between each dough ball; cover with plastic lid.
