Noob question about chicago style thin crust dough
« on: June 10, 2013, 02:04:16 PM »
I'm looking to find out what kind of dough ration/recipe to use for a Chicago/Sicilian type thin crust pie. Would also love to know what type of flour would be best, what kind of yeast (IDY/ADY/Etc..), fermentation/proofing details and really anything else I should/need to know. I've made pizza for a few years now but have never handled the dough making duties and am looking to start my own shop and would love some help/advice/suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Should also probably mention I will be using stone ovens.

There's a section of the forum entitled "Chicago Style", that's a good place to start.

You can find a list of Chicago-style thin crust dough formulas here: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,16422.0.html

I would recommend Garvey's Pizza Factory clone: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,17662.msg171274.html#msg171274

but a couple of Pete-zza's formulations are great as well:

Vito and Nick's clone: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6368.msg117149.html#msg117149
Pete-zza's Monical's clone: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,600.msg53313.html#msg53313

I'm sure many of the others there are great as well, but I haven't tried them all!

What is a Chicago/Sicilian pie?   Maybe just a terminology issue here...name a popular Chicago pizza joint that makes the type of pie you like best.

Garvey's Pizza Factory clone is a work of sheer pizza genius! It is my favorite so far.  :drool:

You seemed so interested 18 days ago. I hope you didn't get your big toe stuck in the faucet of your Digital Bathtub.  :D

I've commented, even started a thread about these kinds of posts before. Noob signs in, posts their greeting post and then wants to know EVERYTHING about something without expending any effort on their own part. And then they dissappear! :-\

Maybe it would be better if we just went over to their house and made them pizza.
