raedaf2002,

In the past, when Tom Lehmann, who was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago (Tinley Park), is asked by posters at the PMQ Think Tank for a Chicago thin style pizza dough recipe, he recommends the one at the PMQ Recipe Bank at http://www.pmq.com/tt2/recipe/view/id_161/title_Chicago-Cracker-Style-Pizza-Crust/. I once asked Tom about step 11 in that recipe that calls for putting the cheese on first. He said that was an error and that the cheese should go on last. For dough ball sizes, see this PMQ Think Tank thread: http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=42055#42055. According to this PMQ Think Tank post, http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewtopic.php?p=2982#2982, you may want to use a high protein (pizza) flour. The thread at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,4676.msg39459.html#msg39459 might also be useful.

Good luck.

Peter

Next week!  :o

I used that recipe last year with good results. I never knew Tom was from Tinley-I used to live there too.

Whoa!  Opening in a week and don't have a satisfactory recipe yet?  Wish I were opening a place, I'd have to figure out which recipe would yield the most dough($$$).  One thing I do know is that I wouldn't be opening a place in the Chicago area.  Just too tough to top those that have influenced me.  Now opening a place with plenty of transplanted midwesterners, that's another thing.

Peter's suggestions of the Lehmann recipe is good.  If you did a little searching here you'll see many have contributed and tinkered with my Generic Chicago Thin recipe. http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,6368.0.html Perhaps you can get something from that as well.

Good luck.
