Combine dry ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend at a low speed for 1 minute. Add water and unsalted butter. Continue to mix for 4 minutes on your mixer’s first speed and then for an additional 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until dough is fully developed. Maintain dough temperature at 78°F (26°C).


Once the dough is fully developed, allow it to rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Next portion dough into 2.8 oz (80 g) portions and shape into rounds for buns or ovals for sausage rolls. Allow dough portions to proof for 5 – 6 minutes.


Next, score each roll or bun once lengthwise and top with a generous sprinkle of lemon pepper seasoning. Bake at 425°F (220°C) in a deck oven (with steam, if available, for 5 seconds) for approximately 18 minutes, or until rolls have a warm golden brown color. Remove from oven, let cool.
