Pizza Recipes...If they say so.
« on: April 02, 2015, 08:15:51 PM »
 The Spam thread got me thinking about a spam pie. I ran across this site. They had a recipe for a Spam pie. I'm gonna try it, but not the way they make it. Thank God/my lucky stars I found the PMF before theirs. I won't elude, but I thought you would get a kick out of checking it out. They have one good recipe by Peter Reinhart. I don't think I could ever make a great pie using their methods. Let me know what you think. http://pizzarecipes101.com/

Here is their version of Papa John's pizza. Ha! It does not even come close to Pete's Clone.

Nick,

The Reinhart recipe, at http://pizzarecipes101.com/doughs/best-pizza-dough-recipe.htm , is the subject of this thread that was started yesterday by member HBolte:

Nick,

The PJ clone recipe is wrong on several counts but if you would like me to convert it to baker's percent format so that you can try it, let me know. The recipe produces a dough ball that is too heavy but I can scale the recipe to produce a 20-ounce dough ball, which is what PJ uses for a 14" pizza. I would have to make certain assumptions because the flour is of unspecified type and is given as a volume measurement, but even then I might be able to find the best fit with a real PJ dough ball as I have devised based on the PJ nutrition information. However, the pizza would have to be an emergency PJ clone pizza because of the full packet of yeast.

I don't know if you saw it, but the recipe page for the PJ clone has a link to the PJ clone thread on this forum.

Thanks Pete!! I think I'll stick with your 2 day PJ's pizza recipe. It's one of my go to pizzas. My two fave pizzas are your PJ's Clone and Garvey's Chi Town thin crust. Most of the recipes there use volumes or pre-made dough. It may be OK for Suzy homemaker. I'm just glad I found this site, more fun and knowledge than I could ever ask for. Thank you for your time and effort.
