Ventured into 4 minute land
« on: December 12, 2012, 04:12:15 PM »
I was very pleased with this one.   Albeit it was with convection it was very good.  I also put foil and quarry tiles on the rack directly above the convection fan to increase top heat.  Baked in 4 mins flat.


Formulation:

All Trumps Bromated Flour - 380g - 66.6%
KAAP Flour - 190g - 33.4%
Water - 362g - 63.5%
IDY - 1 tsp - 0.38%
Salt - 10g - 1.75%
Oil - 25g - 4.385%
Sugar - 6g - 1%

Yields two 14in. and one 12in. pie.
72hr cold rise

I'm envious! Still fighting to get below 6 minutes...

How high does your oven go? Any idea how hot the stone was before your bake?

Not sure about the actual stone temp but I do a 550 preheat for 30mins.  Are you baking 6 mins to darken your crust more or melt the cheese?  I found by increasing the oil it helps with darkening the crust more.

Here is one I did in 5 mins without the convection and quarry tiles over it.

Man, those pies are Heavy, compared to the ones I make. How many inches? A full meal at any rate!

These are 14 inchers but they shrink down to 13 inches after bake.  I wanted big crust for the one above so it was a 16oz doughball.

;D  2 1/2lbs. of dough would make a pretty big pie!

My oven goes only up to 500, which means I can get my stone to about 530 on the bottom rack, if i repeatedly open the door during an hour long preheat. I throw the broiler on during the bake for top heat, but have considered an arrangement like you have, with tiles above.

Ultimately, I am not worried about colour. I want the bottom crisper, and a bit more oven spring would allow me to stretch thin without the slices getting soggy...

That sucks that the bottom rack of your oven isn't adequate for bottom the crispness you desire.  For additional oven spring try reballing 24hrs before baking.

Dam that looks like two meals.  Pizza one and Crust two.  Good show.

Yep it sure was and it was the last of my 6lb loaf of Grande.  I did however find a little pizza place out by me (chicago south suburbs) that uses it and will sell to me at their cost.  Unfortunately they have gotten some bad reviews online and I don't know how much longer they will around for.  Their name is A Slice Above.
