My assessment of this part-baked skin I made today into a pizza, is I really don’t like the taste of the crust. It is okay, but nothing special. The pizza crust did have a crispy crust and I do like a crispy crust, but the taste of the crust is just so bland. I could taste a little hint garlic in the crust and no baking soda. I couldn’t taste the wheat in the whole pizza I made today. As I mentioned before I have never tried a cracker style crust, so I can’t compare this pizza with a cracker style. In my opinion I couldn’t tell much difference in this pizza I made today and a pizza using the real Ultra-Thin shell. I really don’t like the Ultra-Thin shell, either. I thought I had liked the pizza made with the Ultra-Thin shells when I went to visit NY, but don’t know what could have been different, unless I didn’t know much about pizzas at the time. My oven only goes to a little over 500 degrees F, even when heating for an hour. I did follow the instructions at the Ultra-Thin website and also the instructions, they sent me with the shells, the best I could, because my oven doesn’t go to the temperature they recommend. Even when baking a real Ultra-Thin shell in the deck oven at market, they still didn’t taste any different than today, when baking in my home oven.
I did start reading the pdf document, but haven’t finished reading that at this time. I probably will need to read that whole document over a few times, so everything will sink into my mind. I can see by using the whole wheat flour, that it could have become more brittle because of using the whole wheat flour. I can also see how the wheat flours bran can affect the formation of gluten. I know in normal situations, I wouldn’t treat a crust like I did today. I just wanted to show how it behaved when turning it over different times, so other people could see how it really looked. When I removed the real Ultra-Thin crust from the freezer earlier, they are so hard to get apart. They should have put more separators between the shells. If you just try to get a few apart, the shells don’t want to come apart. I had to take 12 shells out and let them partly defrost, before I could get one to separate.
Do you have any assessments about what I did today? Is there anything you think I should have done differently and also did the numbers tell you anything new?
