NY style dough ingredients % as seen here.
« on: January 06, 2013, 12:22:19 PM »
Just for fun, and to see where my doughs fit in, I examined " Pete-zza's Roadmap to Lehmann NY style recipes"
And "Collection of Non-Lehmann NY style dough formulations".

I included 7 dough recipes that used commercial IDY yeast. All others were not included

I list here the range and average % s of , water, oil, salt, sugar and yeast

Sample size 7

WATER: 55-64% <60>

OIL: 1-6.3 %. <2.7>

SALT : 1.3-2.5 % <1.8>

SUGAR : 1-2% <0.8>  all 7. 4/7 used sugar out of those 4 ave was <1.5>



YEAST : 0.3-2.8 %  < 1.1>


Other than ingredients there may be other factors that go into defining NY style dough which I did not consider
And in fact don't know.
