Pizza Party
« on: March 16, 2013, 09:18:14 PM »
Big week in pizza for me.  My new dough sheeter arrived from Doyon so we had a pizza party at the house to break it in.  Here are some pictures from the event.

Veggee, a meatball and a "feast" with EVERYTHING on it.  Everything is:  salami, pepperoni, linguica, sweet Italian sausage, onions, green/red bellpepper, baby bellas and black olives.  That's my favorite!! :D

Wes,

You are a true artist, with pizzas that look like paintings. Very nice indeed.

That meatball pizza is gorgeous! 

I have not heard of a dough sheeter before.  I take it the appliance in the background in the first picture is the sheeter?  Is it used for a particular style of pizza?

I agree, those look killer. Can you tellusmore about the dough?  Would you consider that a Midwestern thin crust?

You bet. Here's the recipe:

Flour                  100.00%
Water            48.00%
Salt                    1.75%
Crisco            1.50%
Sugar            1.00%
NF Dry Milk    1.00%
ADY                    0.50%

It has been referred to on here I think as a  hybrid American/cracker.  I've used the recipe from Peter and the ingredients on the Round Table Pizza bag photo that is in one of the RT threads. I am currently using KA All Purpose because it matches the RT ingredients.  It's "laminated" which is why I broke down and sprung for the sheeter because doing that by hand is...well...hard :-).

LOL! I actually use a brush for the sauce :-). Thank you Peter, that's very kind of you. I enjoy the heck out of this...

Yes. This one is a Doyon single pass, 17" wide.  Single pass basically means you have to change the thickness setting and re-sheet your dough to keep making it thinner.  Do a YouTube search for "dough sheeter" and you'll see a bunch of different types in action.

What is the list on that one of yours Wes...thanks!

I researched the snot out of these things trying to find a sheeter that would do the job without totally breaking the bank.  I picked this over a double pass because I wanted to do rectangular sheets and it looked to me like round is what you get out of the DP.  This one weighs 95 pounds so I can move it around without too much trouble (or Advil).

I was quite proud of myself because I only ruined three dough balls trying to figure out the basics.  I think that perfecting its use will take a LONG time though.  Thing is, there is no info on really how to use a sheeter, even YouTube is pretty devoid of information other than some demos.  And of course those guys make it look easy, hehehe.   Bob, what do you have for a mixer?

My hands.
I do have a pretty nice Kitchenaid dust magnet though...why do you ask Wes?

Those are some good looking pizzas.  I will try your dough next time for sure.
