Bob, I will be trying to do it again tonight so wish me luck. Have you made any pies lately?
Good luck tonight pt, but I hardly think any luck is involved here. You're making some very special looking pies here,IMO....actually quite haunting.
No pizzas lately man....bummer!
On my 30th day of a low carb diet but I did make a small Chi-thin crust pie a week ago using a flour substitute called "carbalose". And you know what....it really was not all that bad. My Chi- thin crust is very forgiving and basic though, really not much more than a vehicle to carry the greatness that rests on top so I may be on to something here. Unfortunately I don't think it would ever work for a longer ferment ,say, NY style pizza but I don't know for sure because the little thin one did rise real well. Apparently Scott123 came close to perfecting a low carb NY crust a number of years ago over on a low carb forum where I accidentally came upon some posts of his from back in like '05. I found that stuff 30 days ago when I started this diet and went searching for recipies...small world ain't it!
Anyway, Scott has now been helping me with low cab junk and is going to try and dig up his old notes....so there is hope on the horizon for me my friend; thanks for asking.
