Hello

My first post. Some great reading here not to mention the pictures!

Does anyone have any ideas for reproducing the sauce used on Picasso's pizza?

I beleive Picassos, and Francos stem from the same original ownership. Iam not positive about Picassos but I know for a fact Francos uses San Benito extra heavy 3 cans to 2 water and typical spices and olive oil. My guess is it's very similar. If anything is different they may use Red Pack Sauce. A big element to Picassos is the "white spice" thy use, it's a mix of parm, garlic and some other things they put in pizza.

Made a pepperoni onion pie 11 min in the pan 1 min on the stone.  Crust is perfect but still looking for a good sweet sauce.

I started another thread on really diving into old school Buffalo style pies if anyone is interested.

Looks like there are some nice pizza's being made.  Haven't posted anything in a while but I figured I would post a few pics of my latest pies.  I've pretty much got this down now.  I'll work on a full recipe/guide at some point....

Last pic is from Imperial Pizza in South Buffalo.  It looked really good although I would have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the taste.  Pasquale's would have been the better option.

The small pizza is a Chicken Cordon Bleu pie...trying to mimic one of my favorites.

Flour (100%) ALL Trumps:    462.5 g  |  16.31 oz | 1.02 lbs
Water (55%):    254.38 g  |  8.97 oz | 0.56 lbs
IDY (.66%):    3.05 g | 0.11 oz | 0.01 lbs | 1.01 tsp | 0.34 tbsp
Salt (1.2%):    5.55 g | 0.2 oz | 0.01 lbs | 0.99 tsp | 0.33 tbsp
Olive Oil (.2%):    0.93 g | 0.03 oz | 0 lbs | 0.21 tsp | 0.07 tbsp
Vegetable (Soybean) Oil (3.8%):    17.58 g | 0.62 oz | 0.04 lbs | 3.87 tsp | 1.29 tbsp
Sugar (.93%):    4.3 g | 0.15 oz | 0.01 lbs | 1.08 tsp | 0.36 tbsp
Browning agent (whey, diastatic malt, pz-44, this is optional) (.77%):    3.56 g | 0.13 oz | 0.01 lbs | 1.51 tsp | 0.5 tbsp
Total (162.56%):   751.84 g | 26.52 oz | 1.66 lbs |

I usually mix the flour, water, browning agent, yeast, salt and sugar for about 2 minutes on low.  At this point, I'll add the oils and mix for another 2-3 mins.  Let it rest for 5 minutes then mix for maybe 3-5 mins on medium or so.  After I'm done mixing the dough, I immediately ball it and put it in the fridge.  The next step sorta happened by accident.  About 2 hours before you are going to bake the pie, take it out of the fridge and immediately spread it out on a 17" crisco greased pan (defining a small crust).  Let it sit for about 1-2 hours, then top and bake for about 12 mins at 495.  Now I know most people are probably wondering why I spread the dough out when it's cold...well I did it without thinking the first time and it has worked ever since.  After the pizza has cooked for about 12 minutes, I take it off the pan and place it on the stone for 30s to a minute.


Approximately what is the TF of this pizza?  I'd like to plug the #s into the dough calculator to make a different size.

Trossite,

The answer is 26.52/(3.14159 x 8.5 x 8.5) = 0.11684.
