True definition of a NY style pie
« on: October 01, 2013, 03:30:31 PM »
What is the definition of a true NY style pie? Is it a pie that produces a soft, fold-able slice that adheres to guidelines such as a certain flour, hydration, salt %, yeast type and %, at least 16" pie, etc? Or is there something more to it than that? Scott, I'm sure your the right guy to set the record straight :D I don't want to incorrectly call what I make something that it's not!
If Tetris has taught me anything, itís that errors pile up and accomplishments disappear.

I thought all the water in NYC was in tanks on the roofs?  Something about open top tanks "taking in the city"??? ;D

N.Y.C. water comes from upstate, upstate locles have been known to stand at the waters edge and donate some extra liquid and then salute the downstaters. :-X >:D
