I just want to see if I can reverse-engineer Norma’s snow pizza.

Historically, the snow pizza descends from the Italian sfincione congelati, which is thought to have first been made at a ski resort in Trentino after an avalanche cut off the local supply route. This pizza is made with the method of reverse-dough (impasto inverso), i.e. where a standard pizza is made with a dough that is formed and then baked, here the dough is baked prior to being formed. The formula is as follows:

Hydration: 100%
Flour: 0% (tipo 00)
Yeast: Frozen or semi-frozen wild yeast, according to atmospheric concentration.
Oil: Probably (trace amounts of engine oil from auto emissions).

Bake outdoors at around 0 to -5.

Form into round. Do not apply too much pressure as this will result in a dense and heavy, snowball-like crumb. Top and serve, preferably at a temperature of no higher than 0-2 in order to avoid sogging. Do not attempt to re-freeze leftover slices or they will turn hard.

Am I on-base here?

Jose,

You almost had me falling off my chair laughing.  :-D You description of how to go about reverse-engineering my snow pizza, was almost spot on.  ;D  Do you think you also want to try to make a snow white pizza?

The only problem I can think of now, is the bake was at about 32 degrees F.  Who could ask for a pizza that costs so little to make.  Even no fuel, electric, gas, wood or any other things are needed for this type of pizza.  Maybe I should have called this an environmentally friendly pizza. 

I appreciate you took the time to try and reverse-engineer my white pizza.  If you have any other questions, just ask.

Paul,

I am glad you think the snow pizza looks yummy.   :)  You are exactly right, probably no calories in the "snow pizza".  I think this is the only kind of pizza that doesn't cost anything and is good because the calories are nill.   :-D

I love cold pizza, but that may be a little excessive...

Seriously though, make it with snow cone syrup, and I'm there!

Craig,

I think the snow pizza even would be too cold for me and I just recently found out I liked cold pizza when I went to Sullivan St. Bakery and tried Jim Lahey’s pizza, although I have eaten snow before.

Not too many years ago my husband and I sold cotton candy and snow cones.  Then I did used snow cones concentrate and Flossine sugar to color some snowmen with my granddaughter.  I would sprinkle either the snow cones concentrate ( that had water and sugar added) or mostly vanilla Flossine sugar on snow and my granddaughter did like the snow cotton candy or snow cones.  Both of those made nicely colored snowmen or whatever else we made of snow.  Maybe you would have enjoyed both of them.

Most of the day today there was lightly falling snow.  Tomorrow it is supposed to snow again.  I don’t think I mentioned this before, but I am getting tired of it snowing in our area.   :-D

I might finish my snow woman and pizza tomorrow if the weather isn’t too bad.  I even might form a head again, since my last one fell off.  If I can finish the snow woman and pizza quickly.  I might make a WFO out of snow so they can go together. 

Pictures of how snow woman and pizza look today.

Mark,

Don't make me sick!  Having a temperature here of 60 degrees would bring me much delight.   :-D

A couple of weeks ago the temperatures in our area didn't even get to 20 degrees F and it was windy on top of the cold.  A lot of the nights were down to near 0.  In the last few weeks when I took the dogs for walks, I had either long johns or the leggings under my jeans to keep warm.  That and two pairs of socks, two pairs of gloves, 3 layers on top and even a scarf when going outside for awhile.  Can you now imagine why I am getting tired of the weather?  Each time I go out for awhile, it is a chore just to dress.  :-D

You sure are lucky if the temperature is only 60 degrees F.   ;D

I wallow in the fact I'm a "Cracker" :D....for those not in the "know" do a search ;)

I met my wife in Indianapolis and while a great city, when we got serious I said to her that she needed to decide if she wanted to stay there or move to Florida with me, 'cause there was no way I going to live there year round :D

If nothing else, it should freeze well.

Mark,

I never knew what a Florida cracker was before.  I know I learn a lot about pizza making on this forum, but I also learn many more things.  Thanks for the new information!  ;D

You are full of humor too!   ;D  You are so right, it does freeze well.

Norma,

Happy to oblige :D

While not a true "Cracker" as my line doesn't go back generations in Florida, I was born and raised here, so I claim the tag, much like the "Conchs" of Key West....try getting a job there without being born there or knowing somebody!  My true line lies back in the hills of West Virginia and thankfully I still got a tad of Blackfoot "Indian" in me and the distillin' know-how :)

Mark,

Since you were born and in Florida, I can believe you are a true “Cracker”.  What I also find interesting is you are also a tad Blackfoot “Indian” and have distillin' know-how.  That is a great combination.  :) Do you also do much distillin'?

I don't anymore, not really setup in this house, but my uncle still has a clay still and produces some AMAZING stuff!  My cousin then turns it into Apple Pie Moonshine :D
