where to start Experiencing ?
« on: July 28, 2016, 03:46:48 AM »
Hello,
I appreciate the information you put sooo much.

I have read so much I kinda get lost, I got everything ready to start trying making pizza napoletana.
I am a bbq guy, brisket, ribs and all that stuff. :d

got a pizza party oven
00 floor
and soon I will make my own culture.
for now I just have a IDY or ADY.

I live in a hot area but I have a cooled rooms and the temp in there is constant to about 75 f.
considering that temp fact.

what should I start with ?
like how much percentage I might need for the yeast.
how long to ferment the dough in bulk and in balls?

thank you

I did but kinda get lost!
I just did my first dough today.

100 molini pizzuti 00 flour
61% cold water
2.25% salt
00.1% IDY   (1.3 grams)

I mixed them by hand, at the end the dough ball was smooth but hard to handle? is that normal?
is it because it's really big or? because it feels just heavy I don't know.

I put it in athe refrigerator and I am gonna leave them until tomorrow, 24 h.
then I will shape it into balls and leave them for about 8 hours or so in 77f.

anything I am missing?

Or for a shorter rise, double the yeast, mix let rest under a damp towel for 1hr , make balls , rise 6-8 hrs

thank you !
last night I did my first pizza ever!
literally!

I loved it! even with so many mistakes and I am happy with the result because I know I can improve and I know what went wrong.
but for the first time ever making a pizza in general I think I am pleased.

I put the dough around 48 hours in the refregater
and then I balled them immediately while cold ( I think that's mistake? )

then left them balled for only 5 hours because I was too excited!!

loved how 40 seconds was all it took to bake the pizzas!
