First DKM Cracker
« on: March 22, 2006, 01:01:28 AM »
This is my first cracker pizza. I'm not sure if I did something wrong but it wasn't cracker like, maybe my oven wasn't hot enough. (475 degrees) No big deal. I'm not familiar with this style so I'm no expert. I'm sure I'll be making another one soon.

Not a bad looking pizza at all.  Did you let it rise ovenight?  Hard to tell but it looks like it could have been rolled out thinner.

Yeah I let it rise overnight. It's rolled pretty thin, I rolled the edge so the crust is a little thick. I don't have a cutter pan with the angled lip so I used a 16 inch pan with straight sides and I thought rolling the edge was better than having a 90 degree lip. I cooked the pizza for a while and the bottom was real white and undercooked so I used a peel and transfered it back to the oven onto the tiles to brown the bottom. The bottom did brown but the pizza was still flimsy.

Did you prebake (parbake) the crust before putting on the toppings?

No prebake or parbake, is this a popular thing to do with this style of pizza?

Par-baking helps.

Also it might have been too thin.  It is a myth that the Pizza Inn/Hut style of thin needs to rolled "as thin as you can get it"  One of the biggest things we got in trouble for was not adjusting the sheeter and getting the crust to thin. :pizza:

Yeah I think i rolled it too thin, I've made a few NY style pizzas too thin and it's the same way.

The raw dough looks too moist IMHO

The dough is definitely too wet.. It should be really hard to roll... With little or no elasticity..In real terms.. when you get it to the thickness that you want it.. It should not retreat back to a smaller shape.. It should be very dense.. Par baking is definitely required....
