Under 2min. on my new LBE
« on: October 19, 2012, 06:24:35 PM »
This is my 5th. pizza on my LBE. Bake time 1:47. stone was 737... Just wanted to see if I could do it. What would you call this kind of pizza. The dough and the constuction of the LBE is on LBE page 92. I was told to start a new thread so here I am. Everything I got is from this site. Many thanks to all of you!! This time the dough came out of the freezer for 2hr.RT. The dough didn't puff up as much as when fresh and a little weak.( I think that is what you call it.) I had some ????? on page 92. I would appreciate any help or comments.  TY. Bob
P.S. I was trying to stay with the same recipe so I wouldn't get confused, but the next time I may use 25% HG instead of BF, or maybe 100% Caputo oo red bag. By the way the pizza was very good.  :-)

Dude... seriously, what could you possibly need help with?  That looks freakin awesome.

I suggested you start your own thread because you deserve it.  It is destined for greatness.

Absolutely beautiful. Right up there with the best looking LBE pies I've seen. Right up there with the best looking pies from any oven for that matter. Nice work.

WOW !! Thank you. I think I have LBE dial in. All of you made it simple for me. Using all of your hard work and ideas. What I would like to know is a little more about making dough. I really don't want to go crazy with a bunch of different flours. I want to make 4 or 5 balls and freeze them so when company comes over I could pull them and make a decent pizza. I will keep learning from this site. Thank you, again...Bob

It's not just the LBE. You must be doing something right with the dough as well.

I have such a fondness for pepperoni slices with the edges charred and a little pool of grease in the center.  Yum.

Here's what I did... Mixed in KA with spiral hook on low for 2min. rest for 10min then on low for 6min. Balk at RT for 1hr. then balled and into the refrigerator for 3 days. then into freezer, when I want to bake..out of freezer on to the counter at room temp. for 2 1/2 hr. crank LBE at 1/3 for 15min. at 600 degrees I opened the dough and dress the pie, about 5min. the stone was at 737 degrees and I put it on at full power, turned at 45sec. (180 degrees) and then about 3 (1/4 turns) total time was 1min. 47sec. the dough recipe was 75 caputo 00/ 25BF, HD63%, salt 2.5, IDY 0.3 Sorry for so much info. but I like details. :-)   Bob

What do you make of this Craig...I know this must be a crazy question, but have you ever froze your NP dough? Thanks.

Well, Bob, congratulations on the praise for your beautiful work.   :chef: :)

Now the question you should be pondering is, Where do I go from here?

As you noted, some tweaks in the dough recipe might make a small but interesting difference.  If you decide to go with all Caputo 00 for the next dough, I would be interested in seeing whether you shoot for a higher launch temp to mimic a WFO.  Given the conductivity of your hearth stone compared to firebrick, I wouldn't go higher than 800.

You've got a great setup to play with, and we're looking forward to seeing your further work.   :)

Really nice pies, and well executed dough. They look delicious. If you plan on using all Caputo, you might try making a traditional Neapolitan pie with San Marzano tomatoes, crushed, and fresh mozzarella. I can't tell of you used fresh mozz from the pics, but a NP bake has fresh mozz that barely melts with no separation or browning. Your bake time could be lowered slightly to 90 seconds.

I would also suggest the freezer is not needed. But you have quite the setup for a LBE. Congrats.

No. I never have. I would think you could. I don't know about SD, but I don't see why not with baker's yeast. Perhaps you would need some tweaks to your formula?

Bob,

According to the post at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,15501.msg152600/topicseen.html#msg152600, it is possible to freeze a Neapolitan style dough. I believe that Norma has done that, maybe even when using a natural leavening agent, but, then again, what hasn't she tried? If I knew up front that I was going to freeze a Neapolitan style dough, I would use more yeast to compensate for the fact that freezing the dough kills some of the yeast.

This thread should probably be in the NP forum versus NY style but,

GREAT LOOKING PIE.

Keep up the good work.

Steve,

Although there are dough formulations that call for using other than 00 flour and are intended to make a Neapolitan style pizza, I try not to put them in the Neapolitan board. If Bob (Boatman2) decides to try 00 flour with his new LBE, he might start a new thread on the Neapolitan board to discuss his results using that flour.

It might even be appropriate to move this thread to General Pizza Making if it is not representative of a NY style.

Perhaps there should be a new subsection in the Ovens section, just for grill mods.  LBE's, IR burners, the Mighty Pizza Oven thingy...  they could all fit there.

Brian,

Several years ago, when Steve and the Moderators completely restructured the indexing system for the forum, I made a suggestion along the lines that you mentioned but I don't recall if it was respect to grills per se or pizzas made using grills. Either way, it was decided that a grills board or child board was unnecessary. Members who feel strongly on this point should send a PM to Steve. Any change would require moving threads around, which is a chore that takes a lot of time. With only two Moderators who do the day-to-day moderating of the forum, that could be a problem.

Sorry, sorry. Not trying to stir trouble. I was just going by the look and 2 minute bake time and figured it wasn't NY style but NP.
