Dough ball from pizzeria
« on: May 23, 2012, 09:31:58 PM »
I am preparing for dough ball replication, or the closest I can get.

Once I get a dough ball home from the pizzeria, what are the next steps ?

I want to use the dough as a base and keep propagating it.  :chef:

Many thanks,

The dough ball you purchased is most likely the result of a process. This process would need to be replicated in your home.

You would most likely be able to take a portion of the doughball and feed the culture it contains with some flour and water in order to propagate your culture, but you must know the process still.

What are the characteristics of this dough ball that you desire to replicate?

Trying to replicate the finished product - leathery crust, open crumb with random size holes , bagel like flavor.

I am trying to determine how much dough to use and the quantity of flour and water to be added   

Thx,

That is an interesting description of a pizza crust. Do you think the pizzeria would tell you how they make their dough?
