List of Chicago thin formulations?
« on: November 19, 2011, 11:49:59 AM »
I am making a list of the various Chicago-style thin crust formulations that are on the forums.  This is my favorite style and I want to try different versions of it, but I find it difficult to locate and keep track of them all.  I will add to this list as I come across them.  I hope someone finds this useful!  :chef: :pizza: :pizza: :pizza:

You might check out this one: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,5045.msg42751.html#msg42751. buzz posted it on the American board but I don't know if that is where it belongs.

I wanted to add to the list, but for some reason I can't modify my initial post.  This forum has all kinds of silly rules that are unique to this and only this forum - I guess this is just another.  :(  If anyone ever reads this thread again, hopefully they will scroll down to find this addition to the list:

With the forum being expansive as it is, this thread is a great candidate to become a sticky, no?

Hmmm, there's a local shop called Gigio's in Evanston that is always at the top of my list when I visit family there, been going there for 30 years.  I'm not sure where it would fall in the above list.  It's a floury, semi-crisp crust -- thin but not cracker.  It appears that it's very easy to work with the dough -- they just spread it out around the peel and load it up from there.

Here are two more midwestern-style thin crust formulations that should probably be listed here:

Pete-zza's Donato's clone: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,2711.msg29079.html#msg29079
Pete-zza's Monical's clone: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,600.msg53313.html#msg53313

[note to mods: can you move all of the added links into the first post of this thread?]

Pete, can you update the Vito & Nick's clone link with this one: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6368.msg117149.html#msg117149

For some reason, the existing link goes to Loo's generic thread.  (Also, I didn't realize that you posted your V&N clone in that thread, I thought it had it's own thread.  Is that new?)   :chef:

CDNpielover,

What happened is that Loo originally posted his generic dough recipe without milk. He later decided to replace one-third of the water in the recipe with milk. A discussion on the use of milk in a Chicago thin crust dough ensued, and that led to a discussion of Vito & Nick's use of milk in its dough. And, from that, the cloning effort followed. I later concluded that the V&N discussion was so entwined with the rest of the thread that it couldn't easily be split off into its own thread without a major reconstructive effort.

There is another Vito & Nick's thread, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6066.0.html, but that thread is for the spin-off of the original Vito & Nick's, called Vito & Nick's II.

It's generally believed that Giordano's uses one dough recipe for all pizzas they make.  Try one of their DD clone recipes here but roll it out for a thin crust.

If anyone can come up with a Fasano's pizza clone it would be greatly appreciated.  They are located on 84th and Roberts Rd in Justice I believe.  Their pizza is one of my all time favorites!!!
