rim glazing
« on: February 23, 2013, 05:12:22 PM »
Hi everyone!

I've seem a dominoes Pizza tv ad, where they use a brush over the rim of pizza after taking out from th oven. Seems to be some sort of glazing.
Any idea what ingredients can we brush the rim with?
I'm a home baker.

There was a video posted recently here showing them doing the same thing (painting the rim with oil) at Pizzeria Mozza.

As discussed in Reply 895 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,3940.msg163567/topicseen.html#msg163567, and as also shown in the video referenced therein, Mellow Mushroom also coats the rims of its pizzas. The video also shows a worker daubing the rim of a pizza with fats or juices from inside the rim of the pizza (starting at around 0:57 in the video). At MM, it is also common practice to shake grated Parmesan cheese on the rims of its pizzas.

My local NYPD stretches and tops cheese pies on screens and sets them on racks prior to rush hour.  They also paint the rims with oil.  When asked why, I was told it as to prevent the crust from drying out.

At one time I brushed my entire crust with pomace oil mixed with a little garlic and sugar. The reasoning that I was tol was that the oil acts like a barrier between the dough and sauce. I never really cared for the extra step or the extra oil so I never continued the practice.

If you would like something nice for the crust try this
Roast off some whole garlic in the oven (250-300ish) for about an hour
Throw that garlic in a food processor with evo and add salt, pepper, basil, and oregano.
