Dusting - Domino's yellow color flour?
« on: June 24, 2011, 10:18:08 AM »
Hi,
 I saw a video where a Domino's guy dusts his pizza with a yellow color flour. Is that a combination of corn flour and semolina? Or what exactly is that?

regards
Ganesh Kumar

Ganesh,

If you to to http://www.dominos.com/pages/ingredients.jsp and click on Hand Tossed Crust, you will see that corn meal is used in the preparation of the Domino's pizzas. That is in the U.S.

Thanks Peter. I think I am using almost the same type of corn-meal that Domino's uses.

But my pizza is always white in color (especially the bottom near centre )  - no matter how many minutes I cook.

Ganesh, Cornmeal and Corn flour are two different things. In India it is called Makki. Mainly used in Northern Indian dishes like Makki ki roti from makki ka atta.
It is a late reply and I just came across it now but I feel that other members who maybe confused might find this helpful.

Hi Ganesh,
  You will get better browning in your crust if you adjust your sugar levels or do an olive oil wash around the edges before baking.  Adding the cornmeal is done for texture rather than color.  Those that use deck ovens occasionally use it as well, but only so the pizza doesn't get stuck to the peel.
