I also mixed the emergency Buddy’s clone dough right after I mixed the last Buddy’s clone dough. I wasn’t sure what final dough temperature to shoot for in the emergency dough, so I went for a little lower final dough temperature. The final dough temperature was 75.8 degrees F. I used 1% IDY in the formulation. I mixed this Buddy’s clone dough in a little different way to see what would happen. It was mixed on speed 3 in my Kitchen Aid mixer right from the start. I sure don’t know why, but that seemed to mix the dough better at least for me. The dough ball wasn’t as sticky for some reason and wanted to hold its shape better when balling. Both dough balls were oiled with Canola oil. Poppy seeds were also placed on this dough ball too so I can watch how it ferments when it is defrosted. From start to finish with this Buddy’s clone dough ball only 10 minutes lapsed until the dough was mixed, scale, balled and put into the freezer. This dough ball was also scaled to 9.5 ounces.
I think I am going to try and use my flat beater on my Hobart on Tuesday to see how well it does mix my other Buddy’s clone doughs, since this method seemed to work for me today. I sure have no idea how the Hobart will do with its flat beater in mixing the dough though.
The print out sheet is also included for this Buddy’s clone dough.
Both doughs were finished about 2:00 PM.
I know I am crazy, but it has been bugging me about how a real Buddy’s pizza tastes and really what one looks like. I did call Buddy’s today and ordered a small cheese and pepperoni pizza to be shipped. Dennis told me the Buddy’s cheese and pepperoni pizza will taste like it was freshly baked, when reheated. Dennis took my order and told me it would cost about 50.00, including shipping for the small cheese and pepperoni pizza. Dennis said the price could be a little more or a little less than the quoted price once it was weighed and ready to be shipped. Buddy’s is shipping my cheese and pepperoni pizza out on Monday and I should receive it by Wednesday. Reheating instructions will come with it. Dennis said Buddy’s could call me with the tracking information when it is shipped, or either I could get that information by email. I decided on the email because I might not be home when the Buddy’s pizza is shipped. I know I won’t have any ambience or a road trip when I receive this pizza, like when I went to Mellow Mushroom, Mack’s pizza, or other pizzerias where I got to taste their pizzas and had companions, but at least I will have my curiosity satisfied.
Are there any instructions for when I received the Buddy’s cheese and pepperoni pizza?
