I must say that for a quick mix dough and a half hour ferment, this pizza was impressive. It lacked some of the complexity of a cold fermented dough and was not as sweet as the MM dough, but still very good.

Steve,

Thanks for thinking the dry mix pizza was impressive.  :) I know it wasn't as sweet in the crust as my MM's clone attempt yesterday.  I will see what I can do about the sweetness level for an experiment this coming week.

I would think those little pigs of yours would grow faster with all the pizza they eat...
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Craig,

Lol, it was about time for those little piggies to eat again.  :-D  They didn't have pizza for awhile.

I mixed another attempt for an all dry mix MMís dough.  I changed the formula for the amounts of dry molasses, dried shortening powder, the type of sugar used in the formula, and the hydration.  If I find time tomorrow, I will try to add water and see if an all dry mix works out okay for a MMís pizza clone.

Larry,

To my surprise. that last pizza I posted about did taste like it was a long fermented dough.  I did use a decent amount of IDY and PZ-44 in the formula, so the dough would proof and rise fast.  It was also a higher hydration dough.  The last pizza I posted about is in combination with my experiments, and other members experiments with the Mellow Mushroom thread at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3940.0.html

I am not sure if I am the best member to help you with an emergency dough.  Is that what you want to use?  These experiments on this thread are just teaching tools for me.  Let me know what you want, and I will see if I can be of any help.

My dry mix MMís attempt was made this evening.  Since I had used a much lower hydration than I did before, I had wondered how that was going to work, with all dry ingredients in the mix.  I mixed hot water into the mix with a spatula, then balled right away, and coated the dough ball with corn meal. The mix looked much drier than my last attempt. The dough ball didnít look really smooth when I did the ball.  The dough ball was left to ferment for 30 minutes near my oven.  

When I went to open the dough ball it opened well.  The MMís dry mix skin was dressed with Lesís chunky tomato sauce, mozzarella, and cut out pepperoni to try and look like a pumpkin face.  The pizza baked well at a little over 500 degrees F, (in my home oven on the pizza stone, on the bottom rack) for about 7 minutes. I did brushed the rim with melted butter with garlic powder added and sprinkled the rim with Parmesan cheese after the bake. This attempt was for a 14Ē pizza.

The final pizza was good, but I think more water needs to be put into the formula because the crumb wasnít as open as I wanted.  The taste of the pizza was similar to a MMís pizza, but I donít think it had enough molasses taste.  The sweetness of the crust was a little sweet, but I am not sure if it was sweet enough.  The bottom crust browned well.  The slices could be folded something like MMís.  

All in all, this experiment did work out well.  I never would have know this dough was fermented for such a short time.  The  taste of the crust and rim were good.
