thanks, you filled in the missing parts. this comes at a realy good time,my pizza tonight was really bad . my dough was not good  i rushed the mix and it was lumpy .

I have found that this method of gradually adding flour makes a really big difference in the finished dough texture.  I'll post some photos when I mix up a batch with my spiral mixer. (If it ever arrives)

Larry,
I too had some difficulty with the Santos because of smaller dough batches & was having such great success with the DLX that I eventually sold the Santos because I never used it.  I am looking forward to the arrival of my spiral & can't wait to test it out.

I was watching the Antonino Esposito dvd today, thanks to thezaman and found it very informative.

Side note have you guys noticed that Antonino Esposito looks like Artie Bucco from the Sopranos. http://www.tlntv.com/sopranos/cast/castimgs/ARTIEBUCCO.jpg
