Pretty fly for a white guy!?!
« on: December 19, 2009, 11:30:07 AM »
Usually I'm a whole wheat kinda guy (they call me Mr. Natural on down to the health food store  :-D) but just for old times sake I decided to jump into the white flour pizza arena. Here's three cooked in 1:45 at 800 degrees on my MLBE.

John..Thanks for the kind words, Im trying to keep up with you WFO folks. This was my best white flour pizza yet. The crust had a buttery note that, like a ghost, still haunts me. All I could say was, I cant believe its not butter!  :-D

This batch is your basic low yeast preferment/high hydration/no knead dough. The preferment is subtracted from the total ingredient list.

300 gm Gold Medal Better for Bread flour
100 gm Gold Medal Unbleached AP flour
300 gm Water (75%)
8 gm salt (2%)
1/64 tsp ADY yeast

Wednesday morning 0600:
75 gm flour
60 gm water (80%)
1/64 tsp yeast

Dissolve yeast in water, add flour and stir. Let sit for an hour and stir.
Preferment will triple in about 12-16 hours. Stir and refrigerate.

Friday morning 0700:
Remove preferment from fridge, dust with flour and chop into small pieces.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and stir with the handle end of a spoon or an SOS (sawed off screwdriver). Let rest an hour and stir again. Repeat in an hour. Dump dough on counter and cover. Stretch and fold dough twice over the next few hours. Scale at 175 gm, place into lightly oiled plastic containers and refridgerate.
 
My stretch and fold technique:
Wet your hands and scraper with water first with this high hydration dough.


Saturday afternoon 1500:
Remove dough from refer and warm at room temperature for 2 hours. The dough temp was 60 degrees when I baked it. I baked the pizza at just under 800 degrees for 1:45- 2 minutes. Thickness factor for a 9 pie is .1, a 10 is .08.

Edit: I used about 100 grams of GM unbleached AP flour. I'm making another batch using all bread flour and will post it in a few days.

Here is the pizza made with all GM Better for Bread flour. I let it go an extra day in the refer. The cheese was cold so it didn't melt as it usually does when I give it time to warm up to room temp (I was in a rush). I also made some French bread.

John.....Just to be clear, the preferment rises at room temp for 12-16 hours and then goes into the fridge for the remainder of the 48 hours. The final dough is the same as the recipe above but I let it go an extra day in the fridge and used all GM bread flour.

Next time I'll increase the preferment to 33% and lower the hydration.

I used fresh mozz and crumbled Feta cheese on these pizzas. Feta cheese is not very Neapolitan but it adds some nice flavor.

The French bread was baked in my electric oven.

Here's a pie made with GM Unbleached All Purpose flour. I lowered the hydration to 70% and baked it at 650 degrees for 3 1/2 minutes. There's more French bread too.

Villa Roma,
Your pizza and bread look delicious.  :)  I see you are getting great results with your preferment.  In the future I will try your advise on the preferment you gave me. 
Always great to see pics of the char.
Thanks,
Norma

Villa,

Great looking pies, Bro!! Not to mention the breads!

And your endeavor reminded me to pay a little more attention to my LBE since it's been kind of neglected lately  :'(

Norma and Essen thanks. The bread was an attempt to recreate the Portuguese rolls we used to get when I lived in southern Massachusetts. This recipe called for potato, butter and milk. When they were cooling down they smelled just like BK french fries! Next time I'll drop the butter and milk. I'd like to try the French Fry dough on a pizza crust.

Villa Roma,
When you said your rolls were made with potato, butter and milk, I thought WOW,  :o  they were some of the ingredients I had used in the Kimmelweck Rolls and then from the dough left over I made the Kimmelweck pizza.  Your rolls looked more tasty than mine. 
I would be interested is seeing your pizza crust when you make French Fry dough.  I have never tasted any pizza made in a WFO.  Is this how your recent pizza and rolls were baked or in the LBE?

Norma,
The pizza was baked in my Mini LBE at 650 degrees and the rolls were baked in a convection electric oven at 425 degrees. I need to try baking the rolls at a much higher temperature with the larger LBE. I'm moving back to the states in a few months so I'll be able to get all my stuff out of storage and go wild. I'd also like to try some different flours like Caputo and Giustos.

The way to get a crispy, crunchy crust is to induce steam into the oven. I cover the rolls with a steel mixing bowl after I mist the inside with a fine sprayer. I remove the mixing bowl after 10 minutes and turn on the convection fan for the final 20 minutes in the oven.

I got bored so what did I do? Make pizza of course! I used some potato in this batch and it came out very light and added some color to boot! I may have to try this on my WW pizzas. The first pizza had butter, milk and potato and the second pizza got the potato and some honey. I like the second one better.

Villa Roma,
Your pies look delicious.  :)  When you used just the potatoes, did you use the potato water added in with your hydration?
