My First Successful Thin Crust W/Pictures
« on: July 28, 2005, 04:54:53 PM »
After a few failed attempts at both the Thin Crust and the DKM Thin Crust recipes (due to me being an idiot and not reading - I was using a whole packet of yeast!), I made my first successful thin crust pizza last night. I used the original Thin Crust recipe and hand mixed it, letting it sit in the fridge for about 48 hours. I used Sir Lancelot High Gluten flour, using volumetric measurements (no scale.) I let it sit out for about an hour and a half before rolling it out and docking it. Stupid me, I forgot to take pictures of the initial steps, only remembering after the dough had been par-baked for four minutes. I baked it at 500 degrees on a metal pan (my cutter pan is in the mail - woo hoo!) on the next-to-the-bottom rack.  My next thin crust pizza will be made using the DKM recipe, as that seems to be the most popular on here.

I wanted to thank everyone here for all of their help and support, especially Randy & Steve. This site has taught me a lot in the short time I've been on here.

These first pics are the dough after four minutes in the oven.

Here it is dressed and ready for a 6 or 7 minute bake.

Here's the final product.  I did have to put it on the stone for a couple of minutes to crisp up the bottom (I'll need to figure that one out - perhaps greasing the pan, as Steve says he does, will help.) Otherwise, it turned out pretty tasty!

Actually, I just got my shipment in from pizzatools.com - (2) 7" deep dish pans and (1) 16" cutter pan. I'll be trying my hand at a couple of personal pan pizzas, hopefully this weekend. After the personal pans, I want to try the DKM thin crust using my new cutter pan. Once I get the big three down pat - thin, hand-tossed, and pan - I will move on to Chicago and Sicillian. Man, this site is gonna make me fat! My wife will be sooo sick of pizza by the time I learn all of these styles!
