First attempt - Not too bad
« on: February 27, 2012, 10:57:56 AM »
For our first attempt we are satisfied with the outcome.
Cooked a little too long but that will be rectified on future attempts.
Cooked on a pellet grill, so you can't keep an eye on it without opening the hood, then the heat drops. Just took a SWAG at the time.
Also had a little trouble maintaining 600 degrees due to wind. Would drop to low 580's at times.
Crust was nice and crispy on bottom.  Used Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Sausage, and Mushrooms for toppings.

Recipe we used:

For Poolish: 
 
1 1/2 C Bread Flour 
1 1/3 C Room temp water 
1 tsp IDY 
 
Mix flour and yeast together in bowl, add water, mix well, cover with plastic and let ferment at  room temp for 4 to 5 Hrs. 

For Dough:
 
All the poolish. 
1 1/2 C to 1 3/4 C bread flour. 
1 Tbsp Barley malt syrup or Honey. 
1 tsp IDY. 
1 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt or 1 tsp table salt.

Mighty fine results for a first try.  I'd hit it.

Peter,

Thanks for providing that. I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due.
I've looked at so many recipes here I forgot who the author was for this one.

Bruce

And thanks to all for the kind replies.  

FYI - I didn't put in the first post, but the flour was Honeyville Imperial Hi-Gluten unbleached flour.   Web site says 13.1% - 13.8% for protein

Bruce,

No harm done. I remember that recipe mainly because I took a stab at it myself in the thread at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6515.0.html.
