Identify a pizza type please
« on: December 21, 2012, 09:19:38 AM »
Can anyone help identify this type of pizza?  I bought this last night whilst waiting for my dough to complete it's 48-hour ferment.

Sorry for the blurry photos...by the way, the pizza was quite rubbish - the dough was awful.

I took a lot more than that but everyone came out blurry - these are the best I could muster.

The top pic sorta looks like a Pizza Hut Thin but the crumb shot looks too thick for that so I don't know.

Ha - well that's exactly the problem.  they would call it a 'pizza' - I'm not kidding.  

I got it from a local takeaway, not a chain.

I won't be - I made a pizza today that was by far the best I had ever made.  

I put my stone on the top rack of my oven, preheated it for an hour then put the broiler on for 12 mins and stuck my pizza in on a screen.  The crust was burnt as it was actually touching the broiler element in a number of places.  I cooked for 4 mins then moved the pizza stone to the bottom and put the Pizza on the stone without the screen for 1 minute(should have been 2)

The crust was perfect, albeit burnt - slightly chewy and not in the slightest bit bready.

Literally 10 minutes later my G3 Ferrari Pizza oven turned up from Amazon!!!!  >:D

I vote cracker style. Looks like it was made with the intention of having a thin, crisp, "crackery" crust.

Jeez I hope they WEREN'T after a cracker crust - if they were they should shut shop for a few months and see if they can figure out what is going so dreadfully wrong, this forum would be a good place to start.  You can't see it because I had to shrink the pictures but some of though isn't actually cooked.

The toppings are great actually - this was a garlic, mushrooms, extra cheese, extra sauce.  It's fatty as hell but really tasty.

Oh and Bob, I did hit it - I hit it HARD!  Well you would do after half a bottle of JD!  >:D

i don't know, the crust looks pretty thick and doughy to me.

I'd say it almost looks like a Greek pie.  Not a "bar-style" Greek (cheese to the edge), but it looks like it was cooked in a pan and that dough looks thick like it had a pan rise.  More information would certainly help.  What city and state was this purchased in?  What was the name of the shop?

I got the impression the poster is British (use of the word takeaway). There are a lot of general takeaway places in the UK that sell an assortment of fast food items: pizza, indian, turkish/greek, fried chicken. The pizza bases are often pre-made and usually not very good.
