Hey Steve I made a batch last night with your formulation, just have a question do you start to see the dough rise or make bubbles right away? or is it slow process because of low % of yeast, or can you explain your Kneading process. I mixed the ingredients by hand for about 4-5 minutes qand let the dough for an hour counter rise and then placed it on the fridge, I just want to be sure I'm on the right track before I make my first pizza

Leo,
 I use a Bosch Uni. plus mixer. First I dissolve the salt in the water and put it in the mixer. I then add the IDY to the flour and whisk it in a little. I then turn on the mixer and slowly add the flour until it's all in and then let it rest about ten minutes or so. I then mix on low for 6 minutes, after which I weigh and ball the dough and place in the fridge for 48 hrs. They don't really show much sign of fermentation unless I let them warm up before baking, which I do for the first couple. After that, I use them cold as I need them over the course of the day.

Perfect Steve, I was a little worried cause in the past I made some pies with higher % of Yeast, and the fermentation was a little faster, but I guess im on the right track, definitely the High temp of the WFO is a factor right, sorry for all the questions I am a begginer on the WFO, thank for the advise.

Leo.

Start checking the bottom of your pie about 10 seconds after launching. I hope you have an aluminum peel big enough to support the whole pie because about 75% of the bake time will be on the peel, suspended a half inch or so off the floor, once the bottom is brown enough for you. It goes really fast. Not at all like Caputo 00.

That depends on just how hot your oven is. Generally under 3 minutes though, I guess. I never actually timed it.

Hello Steve,

Question on the Pies I made, same formulation you gave me, for my taste felt it was missing a little bit of salt, how much % do you recommend to modify to the 1.75% it was minimal, I need your advise I don't want them to be very salty just a bit more. should I go to 1.85 or 1.90 or is it too much.
Regards Leo.

Sure. Try 1.85 and see how you like it. That should be enough to taste a difference without going overboard on the salt. If you want something more in line with neapolitan, you could go quite a bit higher, up to 2.5% or more. It's really up to your own taste. Just keep increasing by .1 or so until you hit the level you like.

Your crust is looking really puffy and light Steve.  How is the texture? And crumb shots for me?  :chef:

I'm going with occident flour right now at 58% hy., Bosch UP, speed 1 for 8 minutes. It makes a really good NY crust. Not as light as NP of course. Crisp exterior with decent chew but not at all tough.  I'll try to get some crumb shots for you on Friday. I just finished mixing another batch of 15.

Of course you will. It's only pizza, how hard could it be, right?  :-D
Actually though, I learned everything I know right here on this forum! ;D

It's just a one day a week "Hobby Business" at a local farmers market.  I have to say it like that in order to keep it fun. And it is fun, as long as I don't count on making any real money at it. 8)
 I only make these pies to satisfy the folks who only want a slice to snack on. Most of my business comes in the evening selling more neapolitanesque whole pies to folks who know what that is. It's all good though! 8)

The Neo-N.Y. pies are 15-16" and sold as slices. 5 slices to a pie. I also do 10" whole neapolitan, different dough, tomatoes and cheese.

5 slices per pie? Really? How do you do that?
