Awesome pizza
« on: February 10, 2010, 12:12:41 PM »
This was one of the best pizzas I have ever, ever, made (or had).

Focaccia

Flour 15 oz    425g      (100%)  (half gold medal bread flour; half King Arthur bread flour)
Water 13.5 oz  382g    (90%)   (95 degrees)
Salt  1 1/2 t    7g        (1.64%)
EVOO  5 T       68g     (16%)
ADY 2 t         4.5g     (1.05%)   

Mix well. Let mixture sit for 10-20 minutes, then mix 10 minutes. Repeat.
Put in oiled pan, oil top of dough, cover with plastic wrap and let sit overnight in fridge. Let rise at room temperature for 3 hours before baking.


450 degrees
20-30 minutes

Baked 20 minutes. 450. Perfect. This pizza was the best ever. Light, crispy, flavorful crust.
Topped with 3 T EVOO, 1/2 t course salt, and 6 herbs; basil, oregano, parsley, marjoram, thyme, and rosemary. Pizza sauce from Pennmac in Pittsburgh, spiced up by me. Spoon sauce over pizza rather than spread to avoid pushing down air bubbles. Sausage on one half, sundried tomatoes on the other with a few mushrooms all over.
6 oz mozzarella.

I made this and it turned out pretty good.  It was my first Fococcia style pizza but it won't be my last.

sdg,

886.5 grams of dough seems like a large chunk.  What is the size of the pizza you made?  Or are you making more than one pizza with that batch?  Thanks.

886.5 is a lot, you're right. I lean towards a thicker crust. It was so airy though. It went down very easy.
Its a 14" pizza.

Yours looks a lot different than my last attempt.
When baking, follow directions.  When cooking, go by your own taste.
