This pizza was made with ideas from two different men named Bill. Bill from Trenton had tried the Carmelina San Marzano tomatoes and sent me some. Bill from Trenton, also told me to try his dough recipe he used with the Carmelina San Marzanos. Bill/SFNM also provided a great video for using the Carmelina San Marzanos to make a great sauce, which I posted about at Reply 3 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,21434.msg216282.html#msg216282
I used Bill/SFNM guidelines for making the tomato sauce using the Carmelina San Marzanos. I used kosher salt, black pepper, sugar and wine vinegar and thought the tomato sauce turned out very tasty and fresh when tasted. The sauce was made Monday evening.
I used Billís from Trenton recipe for the dough for this pizza. I really like to see bakerís percents for all the ingredients when trying to make dough in bakerís percents, but thought I will give Billís from Trenton a try just like he gave it to me. Bill used a 13Ē steel pan and I knew I only had a 12Ē black buster steel pan to try, but thought that still would be okay and my pizza would just be a little thicker. I also looked at the salt amount Bill gave me and thought that sounded like a lot of salt, even though I didnít really know the bakerís percent of the salt. I used Kosher salt. I also looked at the amount of water to the flour and thought this dough was going to be sticky. I mixed the dough in my Kitchen Aid mixer and the dough was sticky. I gave the dough some stretch and folds and it was still sticky, so I just balled and oil the dough ball. The dough was mixed late Monday evening. Bill said he uses the dough in the same day and he rolls out his dough with a rolling pin, then docks, lets it proof, then parbakes before adding the cheese and sauce. I decided to just oil the steel pan with corn oil, then let the dough proof a little. The dough was brushed with herb garlic olive oil while it was proofing. The Carmelina San Marzano sauce was then applied. Next AMPI mild cheddar and a blend of mozzarellas were applied (both Foremost Farms). The top was dusted with Greek oregano and some drizzles of Caremlina sauce. Vermont smoked pepperoni was sliced and applied last.
The pizza turned out very tasty, with a good taste in the crust and also a very light crust. The taste of the Carmelina San Marzano sauce went very well with this pizza. The Vermont smoked pepperoni was also a great addition in Steveís and my opinion. Steve and I enjoyed this pizza very much. I was surprised that the crust didnít taste salty at all. The crispy caramelized edges was delicious.
If anyone is interested, this is Bill from Trentonís dough recipe. He said to use high gluten flour. I used Kyrol flour.
8.8 ounces flour
6 ľ ounces water
Ĺ teaspoon IDY
1 teaspoon salt
Thanks to both Billís for the tasty pizza Steve and I enjoyed.
I would like to convert the recipe Bill gave me for my 12Ēx17Ē steel pan, but donít know how to go about doing those calculations. Bill told me he found the formulation he used on the Buddyís or Shieldís thread, but I quickly looked though it and canít find the recipe Bill used.
