Honey flavors
« on: April 14, 2021, 04:35:32 AM »
Has anyone experimented with different honey flavors? I usually use wildflower but I just bought sage honey at the farmers market to try on my dough recipe.

I haven't used honey in a dough in a long time. When I did, I never tasted much honey. I do enjoy a post bake drizzle of hot honey on some pizzas. I think to get the most honey flavor on your slice, post bake might be the way to go.

The amount of honey or any other sweetener typically used in a pizza dough formula would probably not be enough to result in any discernible differences in flavour in the finished crust.  Tom Lehmann used to say that you would have to add upwards of 5% honey based on the flour weight in a formula in order to begin to perceive changes in flavour.

Here are some pretty good posts on honey by Tom:

As for myself, I played around using honey in several experiments, as I so noted in the thread at:

https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=1707.msg15310#msg15310 (there are four posts calling for honey)

I also played around with using honey in an "emergency" type Papa John's clone pizza at:

There is also a good discussion of honey at the PMQ Think Tank in the threads at:

https://thinktank.pmq.com/t/suger-in-dough/7980 and

https://thinktank.pmq.com/t/dough/6569 (Note: amounts of honey are for wheat, whole wheat, or multi-grain type crust)
