Norma/Craig Hybrid in the WFO
« on: November 18, 2012, 02:22:59 PM »
I wanted to try a sicilian pie in a pan in the WFO. I used elements of both Normas' and Craigs' recent efforts. Baked in a greased 10 X 14 steel pan for 11 minutes at about 460. I didn't measure the actual hearth temp.
Flour 100 % ConAgra Occident
Water 80 %
Salt     2 %
Ischia  4 %
IDY     tiny pinch
RT ferment 12 hrs, 5 hrs in the pan in the kitchen oven with the light on.

Pretty darn good, thanks! ;D

Nice, lite and airy. Just a tough of sourdough.

I forgot to mention, .13 thickness factor. Next time I think I'll try .12

That looks perfect Steve. What was the dough weight?

Craig, since you asked the question, I had to go back and run the numbers again. For some reason, it looks like the formula I posted is not accurate. I know I used 300g of flour, 200g of water and 21g of starter(4% of total dough weight) and 6g salt, total 527
 Given that, it looks like the actual formula is this;
Flour  100%
Water  68%
Salt      2%
Ischia   4%
TF      .133

Very nice Steve! I love the crusty cheese on the edges that you and Craig are getting. I will have to try this one out soon.

And I agree with Tom - you MUST have two stripes.  ;)

I must be missing something. Why, pray tell, must it have only two stripes? ::)

Steve,

If you made your pizza in a 10x14 steel maybe it still could be called a Detroit style if you gave it 3 stripes.  This is one blogger that gave it 3 stripes. http://lifeinbigbites.com/2012/06/25/detroit-style-pizza/   :-D

Steve,

What do you think you think you have been trying experiments of mine and taking home slices of?  Also what do you think I will call the pizzas you tried week after week if I won't call them Detroit style pizzas?

Craig, it was a rough 50/50 blend of cheap medium white cheddar and pre-shredded part skim mozz.

I know, Norma. I'm just funning with you. You know me. I can't help myself.  >:D

 ....and FWIW, Norma, I liked all your recent pies better than the one I made today. ;D

I can see the obituary already:

Pizzamaking.com
Pizzamaking.com was the web's pre-eminent stop from home pizza making fanatics.  In recent months it's membership discovered Detroit style pizza and subsequently have all died of hearth attacks.

The pizzas look great everybody, but do remind me a bit about why my area is so overweight, lol.

Jeff,

FYI, Michigan is #10 in the country in terms of obesity, with an adult obesity rate of 30.4%, per the latest report (2011). The adult obesity rate in Michigan is predicted to rise to 54.2% by the year 2030. The reports did not single out Buddy's, Shield's, Cloverleaf, Loui's, Niki's, or Jet's :-D.
