Bobby Flay Pizza Dough
« on: March 03, 2013, 08:54:03 PM »
Just watched food network about Booby Flay helping open a pizzeria. If you Google him, you can see a lot of pizza recipes, including dough. i thought this was worth sharing with everyone. Not just this link but Bobby Flay's recipes in general.

This is a one hour "emergency dough" and its hydration is VERY high. Here's the baker's percents version for 3.5 cups of flour:

Flour (100%):
Water (81%):
IDY (1.6%):
Salt (2.6%):
Oil (6.18%):
Sugar (.91%):
Total (192.29%):
TF = 0.0959

And the same recipe with 4 cups of flour.  The hydration works out to be lower (76.7% total when you include the oil) but it's still quite high.

Flour (100%):
Water (71.3%):
IDY (1.4%):
Salt (2.27%):
Oil (5.4%):
Sugar (.8%):
Total (181.17%):
TF = 0.0959

This was one of the first recipes I tried a long time ago and it was an unworkable mess, at least for my skill level at that time.  I would have been much happier if I had come across a lower hydration recipe given by weight.  Thankfully I came across this site and it's been a fun journey ever since.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I really enjoy Bobby Flays recipes, but this dough recipe is a bit off. The following excerpt is eyebrow raising:

(Chef's Note: Using bread flour will give you a much crisper crust. If you can't find bread flour, you can substitute it with all-purpose flour which will give you a chewier crust.)

Yea Bobby Flay's pizza knowledge is definitely lacking.
