Hi Deven,

that looks interesting.  Did you leave it that way and just bring it all together with your hands and mold the shape ?
or did you add any water it later ?

ok all images working now  ;D

This is real interesting DKM.  Look at my 5.8oz of water picture using bread flour and compare.  I followed your instructions but used Steve's 5.8 instead of a 3/4 cup.

When I used 6 oz water my dough looked just like yours.
Got to try 5.9 and see what happens.

DKM,
   Is that a plain pizza pan you put the crust on or is that a pizza screen?  From the picture it looks like a plain aluminum pizza pan.

You know the first time I made it, it turned out more like yours.

But I can tell mine is the way it should look if using a mixer.  let me know how you 5.9 goes.

To me the 5.8 oz didn't have as much flavor as the 6.0 but then the kitchen was cool with a blast of cold air from Canadadave ;D.

Of course it my kitchen was very humid that day.  it was cold out side, but dish washer was going and the wife was rinsing off dishes so the air was moist.

hehehe...Randy, wait until you see what we're sending you guys next from Alberta.  It's been WARM here, way above freezing, which is completely unseasonable for Edmonton in January!  You guys might melt.  Better get the fridge cranked up! ;)

Sorry, missed your question.  It is a standard cutter pan (like they use for a PI/PH thin crust)

Temperature around 500 for about 8 - 10 minutes on the second to bottom rack?

Also from the picture it looks like you went straight from the countertop into the oven with no pre cooking of the crust.

I don't par bake. 

That said it has bitten in the backside once or twice.

The par baking works for me.  Like Steve, I have tried several oven temps to avoid par baking but LIke DKM said the results are inconsistant.

Excuse me for being such a newbie, but I say pre-bake & you guys say "Par" bake.  What does that stand for?

Also, another question for you guys.  A while back I was told that pizza screens are the way to go and you just put them on the lower rack as you would a pizza stone.  I read in one of the other posts that some folks seem to put the screen right on the stone.  So which is the optimum way, screen directly on the rack or on the stone????

Lee Par baked is pre baked but you got me on where the words came from.
I prefer to use a screen without a stone to keep from having such a long preheat on a stone.  To me it makes a better pizza than a stone but that is very subjective.

"Par" means to partially bake.  The item is not fully done and will need to be baked to completion. "Pre" mean to do beforehand.  The item has been fully cooked and may need to heated or could safely be eaten cold.
