A lean dough is one that is low in fat and sugar.
• Hard-crusted breads and rolls,including French and Italian breads, kaiser rolls and other hard rolls, and pizza.These are the leanest of all bread products.
• Other white breads and dinner rolls.These have a higher fat and sugar content and, sometimes, also contain eggs and milk solids. Because they are slightly richer, they generally have soft crusts.
• Whole-grain breads.Whole wheat and rye breads are the most common. Many varieties of rye bread are produced with light or dark flours or with pumpernickel flour and with various flavorings, especially molasses and caraway seeds.
