cornmeal in pizza recipe
« on: December 29, 2012, 03:27:41 PM »
 I am curious, tempted to try to add a little cornmeal to my next pizza dough recipe. I was thinking of something like a tablespoon add to 2 cups flour, is this a bit too much and does it enhance the pizza dough flavor or degrade it.

  I did try it, and I think I will be staying with all flour, it is a taste of it's own.

Chet,

There are two Pizzerias in town that use cornmeal in their pizza. However, they do not add it to the dough making process. I noticed that both Pizzerias slightly flatten the proofed dough ball and press both sides of the flatten dough into the cornmeal. Then, they press out the dough into the larger pizza circle (the appropriate size of the pizza, 12", 14", 16", etc.). i am not that fond of this style of pizza, but it is good variety at times.

I do have friends that demand this kind of pizza. To each his own.

1/4 cup cornmeal with 2 3/4 cups flour
Same thing with rye
It is a different taste. I occasionally make it that way
