The Colonel's Attempt at Detroit
« on: November 30, 2012, 07:19:05 PM »
I have been wanting to try a Sicilian pie for a while now. With Craig's recent mouthwatering Detroit-styles I figured something similar would be a good place to start. :chef:

This is what I went with:
 
100% Flour (75% KABF, 25% KAAP)
75% Water
.2% IDY
2 % Salt
2 % EVOO

545g ball size (10x14 pan)

I used very coarsely shredded 50/50 mozzarella/provolone in the middle and finely shredded aged white cheddar around the edge.

I tried to do a tic-tac-toe kind of pattern around the pepperoni with the sauce but it didn't turn out very well and ended up looking ugly.

My picture of a whole pie after baking didn't turn out but I got a pre-bake and a crumb shot.

Cool!  I just popped mine in the oven 7 minutes ago at 500F in my Cast Iron pan.  Hope all turns out well... ;D

I had another go at it tonight. Everything the same except I upped the hydration to 78%.

Looks great. What was your bake time/temp?
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Thanks Tom and Norma. It was very tasty.

For the edge cheese I used finely shredded Adams Reserve New York Extra Sharp Cheddar. This stuff is awesome cheese! I probably ate a few ounces of it while I was shredding it. I couldn't resist.

Interesting.  I've only used olive oil on my pans so far and have been pretty happy.  But I'm all about improving where possible.  I should give that a try some time.  Thanks.
