Oh What The Heck!
« on: September 07, 2012, 07:17:18 PM »
I made yeast raised waffles this morning and had left over batter. I was going to throw it out but said to myself; Oh what the heck, I think I'll use this to make a sicilian dough. So I used it as a poolish and made these two pies this evening. Light and semi-airy, almost cake-like.

It tasted a bit like L&B and was very light like them as well. Mine was just not as uniform in thickness.

Pizza. Please.

Sure Craig.

Flour (KABF) 100%
Water          67%
Salt            2%
ADY  - I started out with 1 packet in the waffle batter. Who knows how much was left in the poolish??
Sugar         1%

Poolish(waffle batter)        10% of total dough weight

Next time, I'm going to replace the batter with Ischia

Mixed everything and let sit on the counter all day doing periodic stretch and folds. Divided and let rise in the pans an hour and a half or so. Baked at 525 about 12 minutes.

Thought I'd compliment you on not just the fantastic sicilian pies but the really cute dogs in the last picture.  The thought balloon over their heads could read "Are there leftovers YET?!"   ;)

I'd rather eat one good meal a day than 3 squares of garbage.

That looks so good!  Certainly looks like you meant to make it all along.  I love it when experiments come out well!

Steve, can you tell me how much flour you used and how big those pans are?
