I tried an experiment with not letting the dough proof in the pan as long to see what would happen.  After the dough ball was opened and placed in the steel pan with the metal lid on, I placed the tray on the top of my oven for ˝ hr.  I usually let the dough proof in the pan for an hour or more on the top of my oven. 

The resulting pizza had a gum line.  I am not sure if the gum line came from not proofing the dough long enough, but it appeared to me that is what caused the gum line.  The slices still tasted the same, but I sure don’t want a gum line.

Norma, when you make all these different kinds of pizzas, do you sell them at them at the market or do you just sell the Lehmann dough pies? Just curious.

I have to go to Baltimore in a few weeks. I may have to make a detour on the way home and check your place out. How far are you from the PA Turnpike?

Don,

The closest exits to the Pa. turnpike to Root’s would be either Lebanon, Lancaster http://wikimapia.org/9846406/PA-Turnpike-I-76-Exit-266-20-Lebanon-Lancaster or http://wikimapia.org/#lat=40.2314215&lon=-76.4377535&z=15&l=0&m=b&v=8&search=pa.%20turnpike%20denver%20exit  I am not sure which exit is closer to Root’s.  Steve lives right near the Denver exit.

It would be great to meet you if you can make it to Root’s.  :)

Root's is only about 20 minutes from Mount Hope Winery, right off of route 72.

I was just looking at a map. I may have actually been to Root's before! When I was a kid, we used to visit my dad's relatives in Pa. Most of them are in western Pa. (Brownsville/Uniontown), but we occasionally would travel farther to my uncle's house. I had to call my dad and ask him where my uncle lived, and sure enough, it was just outside of East Petersburg. I vaguely remember going to a big market with my sisters and cousins. My uncle bought us candy sticks there. This would have been in the early to mid '70's. It's a small world.

It's too bad that I don't have any homebrew to exchange with Steve. Even if I were to make a batch today, it wouldn't be ready in time.

Oh well, I have hijacked this thread enough. I haven't decided whether I will be driving or flying to Baltimore. If I drive, I definitely plan on swinging by your way. In fact, this might be the deciding factor on why I drive.  :chef: :pizza:

Don, we'd be more than happy to have you stop by. Like Norma said, I'm only a few minutes from exit 286 on the turnpike. Roots is a little farther but easier from the next exit westbound. It's on the same road you get off on. (rt. 72)
 Don't worry about the homebrew. I've got enough for all of us! ;) :-D
Keep in mind, Roots is a Tuesday only market. Any other day, I'd be happy to fire up the wfo or anything else you might want!

Don,

Don’t ever worry about getting any of my threads off-topic.  It doesn’t bother me.  It is a small world that you went to your uncle’s home (near East Petersburg) and remember going to Root’s with your sisters and cousins.  The candy sticks your uncle purchased for you would have been from Smith’s candies.  They have been at Root’s for many years.  Right near that candy stand was were my husbands parents had the caramel popcorn stand. 

Let Steve and me know if you decide to drive and stop at Root’s.

fc,

I agree with Steve.  Your Sicilian pie looks delicious.  Your crumb structure looks really light too.  Great job!  :chef:

I forgot to bring this one Sicilian dough ball home on Tuesday.  It had a big bubble on the top today.  I pinched the bubble apart.  I thought the gluten structure was interesting.  I am going to reball this dough ball, let it sit out for a little and then freeze it.

Bob,

Interesting what you think the gluten looks like.  I never saw the “Fantastic Voyage” movie.

I think it looks like holes in the galaxy.

Maybe, something like this.

Pizza dough is interesting, but sometimes confusing.   8)
