PH thin & crispy from the 70's
« on: July 11, 2013, 12:44:30 PM »
Every once in a while something triggers in me the fond memory of the t&c crust. And I can almost taste it....yeasty soda cracker ish.
Anyone have a suggestion on getting that soda flavor...I have a feeling it would need a certain flour and perhaps a poolish/preferment using very little yeast? Or, just add baking soda? I don't know.   Thanks!  :chef:

  That's a great idea!! Maybe that's what I am missing in my PH crackers. I found a soda cracker recipe that uses yeast and baking soda. I have made a soda cracker pizza crust in the past, but it was too light  for a pizza. By using the yeast in conjunction with baking soda, and changing the hydration a little, maybe I can get that flavor and texture we are both looking for.  I give it a try on my next cracker and let ya know.
