Not sure what type of dough recipe to look for?
« on: November 27, 2011, 12:47:55 PM »
My husband's fav pizza is Frankie's Pizza in Miami. It is pretty awesome. I am trying to make one similar but I really have no idea what type of pizza it is. All it says is "Italian". It is cooked in a rectangular pan, but not thick like Sicilian, very cruchy bottom crust & light & airy in the middle. Kinda like a thick pan pizza with crunchy bottom, but not as thick & not doughy in the middle. Here is the website with a pic and a pic of the pizza in the pans they use. They brush the crust with something also.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I didn't find much information with a google search except this, others may have more success :  http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calories.asp?recipe=581940
The one link you posted, grub scouts indicates a three step process perhaps a divided ball rise, then one final rise in the pan, and then bake. Depends on interpetation I suppose.

Thanks for looking buceriasdon! You are correct about the 3 step.... in this video the owner says there is a 3 step rising process & a 3 step cooking process. I have googled this for hours & found nothing. Thought at least in 55 years of being in business there would be a disgruntled ex-employee out there somewhere that would tell something about the secret lol! I am beginning to lean toward it being a Sicilian just not as thick  ??? That's why I am here, figure some experts on here could guide me in the right direction. Also gonna have to learn how to convert measurements, etc if I am going to try recipes on here, seems most on here are from other countries. Here I come google!

Thanks for the you tube link. By saying three step rise I wonder if she is saying 1. Bulk rise 2. Divided ball rise 3. Last rise in the pan. The three step baking.........hmmm. Makes me wonder if she is saying, without saying of course a parbake, topped and half baked for take away and finished baked in house or baked partially in the pan then finished on stone, but they don't look like that. That would require being placed back in the pan for cutting so I doubt that is a step. Going by what I found the dough seems to be a straight forward dough, no milk or eggs or whatever added. Maybe some garlic powder. A look at steel baker's excellent Victory Pig thread would be very helpful to you I think.

Thank you Don!!!!!!!! I think you are totally on to something now! That guy that used to work at the Pig's post about the method could be the key, plus the use of blue steel cooking sheets & peanut oil. I think you are correct, it has to be a simple recipe b/c every time we have been there it's packed no matter what day & it's take-out only all in a teeny hole in the wall building.....no way that can produce that many pizzas if it was a huge process. I am pretty sure that they prebake the crust then brush with some kind of oil too, I've seen it. Thank you so much for your help. I love this site & cant wait to try a ton of recipes, too bad it is Sunday. Not much time during the week  >:(

That pizza looks like a Detroit Style Pizza with a little less grease. 

I am certain you will be pleased with the recipe from PizzaHog on reply #199 in the post "Detroit Style" - Buddy's or Shield's.
