Crisco Chicago Deep dish
« on: January 17, 2005, 05:19:00 PM »
Well I thought I would post a new UNTESTED recipe for this weeks pizza.
Any thoughts and comments would be appreciated.  This one I wanted to test the new Crisco and allow for a long on the counter rise before placing it in the cooler for an overnight rise.
I had a thought as I was typing what about a counter rise then place the double size dough in the cooler.
Many food channel pizza shows show the dough being divided in what looks like a fully doubled state.

Revised  Chicago-style Deep Dish Pizza Dough
To use Crisco Zero Transfat.

Makes 2  10-inch Chicago deep dish.
1 teaspoon bread machine yeast
1 teaspoon raw sugar
8.5 oz warm water (90deg)
 3 tablespoons Crisco zero trans fat
1 tablespoons Clasico Olive Oil
17 oz Bread flour
2 tablespoons yellow corn meal
1 Teaspoon salt

 
KitchenAid instructions
Put everything in the bowl except for the Cornmeal, Crisco and oil mix until a ball forms on speed 1(stir speed) then knead at speed 2(knead speed) for 5 minutes.  Add Cornmeal, Crisco and oil knead for 5 more minutes.  Place in greased bowl for 5 hours or until doubled, then divide and roll into balls.  Place in cooler for 24 hours. 

When ready to cook flatten one of the balls in a 10 “pan with olive oil in the bottom until the dough covers the bottom. Use fingers from the top to pinch up the sides about ˝ way up the pan and about 3/16” thick.  Bake on low rack in oven preheated to 425F for 20 minutes or more.

Yes soon I hope.  I keep thinking about how the dough looked on TV.  I don't think you get that kind of rise in the cooler.

i was just thinking of the water temperature assuming a five hour rise on the counter.  I showed 90 but me thinks 70F would be better.  The risen dough on TV looks airy but stiff.

I have also changed the flour to 16oz and the water to 8 oz@70 deg F.  DKM this a bit of a change from your famious deep dish.  I will probadly go back to DKM's deep dish but I love to see what happens when changes are made.

Making the dough today for Thursday's supper.  Five hours(or until it doubles) on the counter then divide in half for a second overnight rise in the cooler.

Next week DKM thin crust using bread flour then the following week back To my American and hopefuly if time permits  pictures and a write up for Steve's recipe page.

I had time during lunch to make the dough.  The quality of the picture is not good but the temperature of this very stiff dough after 12 min knead time was 80F.
I used 8 oz water at 70F but the dough was so stiff I added a tablespoon of water.   I had to hold my mixer bowl to keep it from jumping out.  After the picture, I did hand shap it into a ball.

It looks a little hard.  Did you have a hard time shaping it?

I'm interested too. I am away from home for a while, but before I left I did a quick calculation on the hydration percentage for the flour-corn meal blend and, if memory serves me correct, it was below 50 percent. That may account for the stiffness of the dough.

50% just with the flour is the way I see it too Peter.  Because it is so stiff I will take it from the cooler three hours in advance of panning tonight.

This sounds more like a dough that may need to be rolled, not patted out.  If fact, it sound a lot like the old ddep-dish that Pizza Inn use to make.

here is the dough with one ball mashed down to a disk right out of the cooler.
Now the question is pan it and let it rest before baking or just shape pan and bake?

The results are in.  This pizza is tasty.  The crumb was exceptionally fine and the exterior crust crunchy and could be peeled from the crumb.  I was surprised how easy the dough worked offering very little resistance.  I also tried a 10" pan and a 9" pan having divided the dough in half the day before.  The 10" was a better fit although the 9 worked well.  I also used one dark pan(9") and one light pan(10")  the 9" dark pan took 20min to cook and the 10" light pan took 25 minutes to cook at 425F.
I will make this again.
The Zero Transfat Crisco was perfect.

How fine is the crumb on a real Lou's pizza in Chicago?

Had a slice from the freezer for lunch for the final test and it was great.
