Got Gluten??
« on: April 07, 2014, 01:48:30 PM »
Well - I had some extra dough this weekend.  I decided to see how well I did developing gluten.

So........ What do you think the thickness factor is on this dough??

Total dough ball weight - 410 grams.  My original size was to be 15.5 inches.

I stretched the largest dough ball to 36 inches.  The dough was so thin that when I touched the dough it ripped around my finger.

pdog,

The original thickness factor would have been (410/28.35)/(3.14159 x 7.75 x 7.75) = 0.07664.

At 36", the thickness factor became (410/28.35)/(3.14159 x 18 x 18) = 0.014207.

I should have tried to bake it off!  That would have been a thin and crispy pie.

pdog,

Your very thin dough is very interesting.  8) If you are interested in some thin doughs I made one is at Reply 3 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=13104.msg128478#msg128478  That dough is very easy to stretch very thin.  You might have beat me in thinness.  :-D

That is a 250g dough ball on the left. KAAP flour.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.
