Mad Stretching Skills
« on: January 02, 2013, 08:43:21 AM »

I posted this in the News section, but felt this also deserved it's own post in the NY style section because 00:00 to 00:08 is a perfect example of how a NY style should be stretched.  99% of the people making pizza in NY can't stretch a skin like this.

Sorry, Chaz, I didn't convey myself well. I meant to say "99% of the people making pizzas in NY pizzerias can't stretch a skin like this," not to cast any dispersions on any of this forum's talented members.

I would also add that 99% of the people making pizzas in NY pizzerias don't even know that this is what they should be striving for, so even if you aren't quite there yet (with the time you've spent here, I'm sure you're close), just by knowing where you need to get is most of the battle.

John, I helped him develop his recipe, so I know the hydration and the flour  >:D but since he might want to keep the specifics under wraps, I'll let Paul answer your question.

I'd say that 99% of people should have the heart that this gentleman possesses. It's a great story and he does indeed have great skill. All comes from within.
May I glorify the Lord in all that I do.

That dough is the definition of extensibility too.
Back to being a civilian pizza maker only.

Paul, besides thanking you for being an inspiration going through all that, anything you can share about your dough fomulation that stretches so well would be great...but ONLY if it's not a proprietary concern.  I'm still very new to all this.

Thank you for the kind words guys.

How about I take guesses about my dough recipe/mixing/fermenting protocol and flour type and the one that I feel is closest I will send a prize too? I can then reveal all the details about what I do.
I am now making my own hot sauces, I could send the winner over some goodies to try?
What do people think? Just wanted to do something fun with you guys..
I hope this will be ok with Admin. 

All the very best health for 2013.

BTW, Scott123 not allowed to enter! ;-)  you are getting goodies anyway! :-)

Is it bigger than a breadbox?  ;D

Seriously, though, Paul, those slices look great.  I'm liking the thickness factor  :)

Oh, come on, Chau. Free stuff! If I could, I would be all over this challenge.

If someone doesn't know, they can just guess. You gotta be in it to win it  :)

Well I'm sure I'm excluded from the challenge as well.  Unless the formulation has changed drastically since we last talked.  ;)
