Here is a link to a recipe that incorporates the Sicilian tradition of bread crumb toppings, plus a few signature tricks his Grandfather used.

Lydia,

If you go to the Sicilian Dough thread, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,1073.0.html, and look at Reply 1, you will see a link to a later (2003) version of Big Dave's "Sicilian" dough recipe.

You will have to be careful about the formulation you posted because at the time that the formulation was posted, Big Dave was prone to reciting the oil in fluid ounces, not by weight. In his later formulations, including the one I found, he started reciting oil by weight. As your post indicates, Big Dave used his "Old Faithful" dough recipe for all kinds of pizza. Hence, it may not be the best example of any specific style, including Sicilian.

It shouldn't be a big problem to downsize the Big Dave formulation you posted. He apparently used round pans rather than the traditional square or rectangular Sicilian pans, so some work would have to be done, using thickness factors, to calculate how much dough would be required for different size square or rectangular pans.

Thanks. I'm glad I didn't try with this recipe yet. I wasn't looking for a all-purpose dough.
