Happy pizza for me and my girlfriend today
« on: December 29, 2013, 06:51:56 PM »
Turned out ok, could be much better. What do you all think?

Details: fermented four days, 63% hydration, 1% oil for stretch and fold (done every ten minutes for an hour), 1% salt, KABF. I cut the thick style pizza  dough I had in half for this actually so it's kinda sloppy measuring everything. I used the 6 in 1 tomatoes and I think they are a bit too much and sweet for my liking in this style. I like the idea of just uncooked super finely blended canned plum tomatoes better.

Wow that top picture didn't come out right at all. I should probably invest in a dedicated camera. Haha.

Its a great job! Btw,I stopped using oil in my doughs. I just use water,flour yeast and salt. They mix in the bread machine for a few minutes,then I ball them and put away into plastic bowls lightly oiled for a fridge rise overnight or two..If I want same day pizza,I use warm water, a bit more IDY yeast,then after mixing,ball the dough,put into plastic bowl,covered and let rise in kitchen for 3-4 hours.Not as tasty but works great.The dough rises fast and gets huge!

If the dough does a cold overnight or two fridge rise,let it warm up near a warm stove or kitchen 2-3 hours before use,it will be very easy to open and have risen a bit more since then.Oil makes it more extensible,but if you are doing folds,you might be making the gluten develop too much.With my method,if I use oil,the dough becomes so extensible,If Im not careful an 18 inch dough ball can turn into a 22 inch disc ina matter of seconds when shaping it.

Thanks, I have noticed it kicks back a bit with the stretch and folds some. It works good enough for now. I figure letting it sit in he fridge relaxes the gluten. Correct me if I'm wrong. This isn't where I want to be in pizza but this has been some of the more satisfying pizza making for a while now. Ps. Making for balls at once makes life a lot easier. 8)
