Is it a mystery because you don't know what you're going to make with it? ???

Norma,

Is it a mystery to you, or for us to guess?

O.K. Norma, you set the hook in my lip! ;D

There has been some talk of potato pizza lately.  Is "Potato Flour" white?

Pizza3.14,

I know what kind of dough ball is pictured.  If the pizza turns out okay, then anyone can guess what the dough ball might be, if they are interested.

Paul,

No, the dough ball doesn't have any potatoes in the dough, but might have potatoes as a dressing.

Craig,

No, the dough ball was made with unbleached, unbromated flour, water, yeast and salt.

Norma,

How did the mystery pizza turn out?  

Pizza3.14,

The mystery pizza didnít turn out as well as I wanted.  The skin was nice and easy to open, but Randy, Steve, and I decided to use too many dressing for this pie.  At least I think that is what happened.  The pie slide around on the first spin well, but then wanted to stick to the deck.  The bottom crust then wanted to tear.

Randy had purchased some Amish Hickory Smoked bacon which we grilled in the deck oven.  I had sliced some Yukon Gold Potatoes and soaked them in water with salt.  We then par-baked the sliced potatoes in the bacon fat.  Randy also bought some extra sharp cheddar and we used a lot of cheddar plus a lot of sauce on this pie. A lot of spring onions were also placed on the pie. There also was thyme added during the bake.  We all decided to use all these dressings and I think it was all to much for the crust.  This is one picture of a slice of the pizza, but I will post the rest of the pictures tomorrow.

These are the pictures of the mystery dough and the pizza from the mystery dough.  The dough was very soft and the dough ball opened very easily. There were many fermentation bubbles in the skin. The bottom crust browned well.  The dough ball had been cold fermented for two days before making the pizza and the dough ball weighed 448 grams.  As I posted the pie developed a tear in the oven, which can been seen in some of the pictures.  The places were the pizza wasnít torn tasted good with the abundance of toppings.  The whole outside of the crust stayed crisp, but the middle where it tore, became slightly limp.
