I am looking for a Dominoes style dough recipe.
« on: January 13, 2006, 01:17:04 PM »
Hello,
     I am looking for a Dominoes style dough recipe. I recently, after years of trial and error, came up with a pretty close recipe that has a chewy consistency. However, if anyone knows of a recipe that they think is like Dominoes or Papa Johns pizza dough, please let me know. I have found that higher gluten contents around 18 to 20 percent produce a chewy crust. It was just recently that I came across what it took me to get the dough to cook thoroughly and rise under the load of sauce and toppings while cooking. So, if you have a good Dominoes or Papa Johns style dough and crust recipe and don't mind passing it on, I'd love to hear it. Thanks, Jondough

I can't find my copy right now but if I'm not mistaken Peter Reinhart has a receipe for American stlye pizza dough in his pizza book American Pie.  Also, I think that recipe contains milk which would make it close to a Domino's style dough. You may want to check into that book if you don't have a copy yet.

Here are the ingredients for Domino's hand tossed dough.
Per their website, they are:

Enriched flour (wheat flour, iron, thiamine mononitrate, niacin, riboflavin, folic acid), water, oil (soybean), sugar, salt, yeast, vital wheat gluten, less than 1% dough condintioners, ascorbic acid, L-cysteine, sodium stearoyllactylate, whey, enzyme, corn meal.

For those who are interested, Domino's, like Pizza Hut, now posts ingredients information at its website, at http://www.dominos.com/home/menu/ingredients.jsp.

From reading a lot of posts on here it is obvious that a vital ingredient for a good dough is extra gluten, either in a higher gluten content flour or by adding vital wheat gluten.

I am going to try out the Papa John's recipe posted on here and I found some King Arthur Flour at the local Fred Meyer's (I got the unbleached white wheat berry kind). I also have some vital wheat gluten that I can add, but my question is how much of it should I add to the flour?

thatonegirl,

Is this the flour that you are referring to: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/landing.jsp?go=DetailDefault&id=3311. And what brand of vital wheat gluten do you have on hand, and what amount of flour does the recipe you plan to use call for?
