And I thought it was BLOWN........
Well, now I know what all the fuss has been about! This MM dough has a VERY alluring and satisfying taste to it indeed!!
As previously mentioned, I've used the MM dough in some Chicago thin experiments (you don't wanna know
). To be honest,when in MM restaurant purchasing dough balls ,I never really liked the looks of the pies I'd seen customers eating. They sure had a HUGE rim and I mean real doughy look'in man...so I never sat down an tried one. Momma Mia,was I ever missing out! This stuff makes a mean pizza...do not hesitate to give a try, you'll likey.....
OK,...for this pizza I used 7/11 tomato's,Grande east coast shred,It.sausage(more on that soon
) and,of course....'srooms,man........it was far-out!
9.8 oz. dough stretched to make a 10 in. pie, gas oven with broiler-main heat source on the bottom,550 degree stone on lowest shelf,cornmealed peel release,6 min. bake 90 sec. under broiler.
I don't know what I was thinking but I set my timer for 10 min.and just about when I remembered reading that Norma had cooked one of these at market for just 6 mins. I looked over at my timer and it was at 3 min. left! Took a looksee an thought I'd burnt it but the cheese still needed a lil more color,hence, 90 sec. under the broiler.
Don't let that fairly dark look on the bottom of my crust fool you.This crust cooked up light an crispy..not a hint of a hard, burnt, thick layer.Nice crisp,airy rim and as you can see the crumb does have a slight denseness to it but that therin is where the magic of the MM dough resides.It's sorta hard to describe....an almost fermented or candied underling sweetness to it. Not sugary sweet...much more complex than that. I gotta tell ya,it is quite unique and alluring almost intoxicating....pulls you in wanting more!
I'm really glad I tried this and I highly re commed it. Norma will soon be able to tell everone if my experience with the MM store bought dough is similar to the clones that she and Peter have been developing. I suggest going ahead and trying one of theirs cause you know they are very clever people and you do not want to miss out on this beauty!
Enjoy....here's a few more pics of this great dough in action.
