    7. Knock down dough and divide into 12 or 24(mini) equal-sized pieces.  Form into balls rolling dough in the palm of your hand in a circular motion on your mat. Place apart on mat as you go or place close together for more of a slab/loaf effect.  Leave to proof again while you prepare the piping.
