Pics of my pizza
« on: March 18, 2013, 09:56:27 AM »
Hi everyone

I was asked to post pics of my pizza, so here goes..
My rcipe:

Ingredients:
1.334kg pizza flour
800g water
1/2t instant dry yeast
1T salt
1T sugar

Sauce:
120g tomato paste (big boy - HTT Chinese brand)
4T white vinegar
2T pickled olive brine
2T sunflower oil
1t garlic powder
1t marjoram powder
1t msg
1/2t black pepper powder
1/2t chili powder

Topping:
Only olive rings

I mix and knead by hand, let rest, covered, on the counter for 2-3 hours, then refrigerate overnight, then on the counter again for 2-3 hours, then shape directly in 2 16" SS trays.
I use a mixture of grated parmesan cheese, and grated mature cheddar
I spread the sauce all over the pizza, including the rim. Same for cheese. This way, my kids don't discard the edges.
and I bake in a pre-heated gas stove oven for 9 minutes on 250c (480f)

My kids love its taste. Its light and soft at the top, feather-crunchy in the bottom and near the rims.

Looks delicious Sallam!  I also like your idea of minimizing the outer crust so the kids will eat right to the edges.  I hate to see the best part of the pizza go to waste! Of course, when you have a puffy crust many people (especially kids) don't like to eat the edges. 

Thanks for sharing photos of your pizzas.

Regards,

Looks great, thanks for posting!  Would you say that style is common in Egypt?  (Please excuse my ignorance, but I'm really interested in pizza from different parts of the world!)

Not really. A thinner crust is the common type, though not as thin as the NY style.
I do mine thicker out of laziness. A dough of that volume can almost make 4 family 16" NY style, but double the work, lol. Besides, it costs more, because of the more cheese used in 4 instead of 2.
But in general, Egypt has many of the famous chains, like PH, Dominoes, Papa John, etc.

sallam, is that olive oil on top (or are my eyes deceiving me)?  Also, what kind of cheese did you use?  thanks!   :chef:

No, its fat melting from cheese.

^^it also reminds me of the Greek pizzas that have been made on this site (I think if it was proofed and baked in a pan, one would have a hard time finding a difference).
