ellementz, another welcome and request for details on how to make that great looking pizza. Assuming of course that it won't get you fired!

Here's a quick breakdown

[Dough]
2 cups of water
4 1/2 cups flour ( I use 3 cups bread flour and 1 1/2 cups of 00 flour)
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp yeast (we use Red Star)

In a bowl/mixer add the water at 100-110 degrees, the yeast and the sugar. Allow yeast to bloom for 10 minutes. Then add the salt and flour and mix for 5 minutes (10 minutes or so if hand kneading)

Small= 12 oz dough ball
Large= 21oz dough ball
X-Large= 32oz dough ball

Make your dough balls accordingly and let them rest 10-15 minutes, while they are resting grab your Detroit style pizza pan and to it add 2-4oz of corn oil (Jet's uses corn oil, a lot of it lol) I personally have a XL pan so I use 4 oz, for a large pan use 2-3oz.

After you dough sits for 10-15 minutes lightly oil your work surface and push the dough out flat and form a sort of rectangle, pick the dough up and slap it back and forth between your hands to stretch it (if you don't feel comfortable doing this just stretch it out best you can on your work surface) now place the dough into your pan and starting with one end push the edges into the corners and turn the pan around and do the same with the other side. Now using your fingertips press down hard up one side then up the other over the area of the pan.

Now just cover the pan with a towel, lid, whatever and allow to sit out for 4-5 hours 70-80 degrees or until the dough has risen about half way up the pan. Now you can cook it or refrigerate it.

I baked mine at 550 degrees for 15 minutes

Quick edit to add a little more information. We get our cheese from Grande, it's a whole milk mozzarella. I figure any whole milk mozzarella or brick cheese if you like that better will do nicely, always shred your own cheese though!

As for the pepperoni, Jet's uses a self labeled Jet's pepperoni that they get from Sofo food distributors so not sure exactly what brand.

If you can find ezzo pepperoni in your area I would recommend those or Boars Head is good too.

Yes, we make the square dough in the morning and it is used in the evening. Our round dough needs to proof for a couple days.

Am I doing the math right on your recipe? I know cups of flour are a bit subjective, but does 81% sound right for the hydration level?

2 cups water: ~474g
4.5 cups flour: ~585g

81% hydration.

Edit: I made it as written by ellementz, and this has got to be the stretchiest dough I've ever worked with! My food processor's dough blade doesn't "lock" (it's held in by gravity, Cuisinart) and the dough knocked it loose after about 2 minutes of mixing. Seemed like plenty though. Got it rising in the pan right now-- excited to eat this. I will update with results.

ellementz recipe scaled to the "large" 21oz doughball:
262g water
325g flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp IDY

corn oil in pan

Post-eating update: This is a great recipe! I probably could have cooked it a few minutes longer but it was delicious. The high hydration was indeed great and I will certainly be making this one again. I used to love Jet's but haven't had it in years since I relocated to another state. This is it! Thanks ellementz!

What size of pans would correlate to the three size pans you listed so we know the appropriate dough to make for the size?

You use the XL size you said, whatís the measurements and the recipe you posted, I would assume thatís for an XL pan??

Would avocado oil work or regular extra virgin olive oil work?


Thanks!!! That Pizza looks amazing

Iíve found that a combination of ghee and corn oil gives me a similar crispness to Jetís.  Still need to figure out how to replicate their Turbocrust flavor though.

I made this recipe with a 10x14 pan and it was like DOUBLE the thickness of Jet's.  It was good but it was almost all crust.  I'm going to halve it this time.

I think the issue is the recipe is just for a generic amount of dough that you then later cut into certain weights to use, but the average person makes one pizza, so they just the amounts for one pizza.

That looks great!  :chef:

You can apply sausage raw on there if you'd like more flavor.  :pizza:

Iím thinking at a pound of sausage per pizza weíre going to be able to taste it to some extent.  :-D 


We had a couple from Jets 2 nights ago. Reheated what was left tonight (almost a full 8-corner) and served with pasta. I think their pizza is better the second time around.

   One can put 2lbs of sausage on there if they want.... But finished pie taste will be different than one baked utilizing raw meat... :drool:

Most non neopolitan commercial pizza will have better flavors the second time around.... Experienced reheaters can make a reheat better... Plus some!  💪🔥🍕🌴

Yeah thatís because of the reaction the cheese has when melting the first time lets it congeal so the second heating keeps it more solid. Usually the sauce and cheese is too liquid when itís hot out of the oven.

I prefer cooking ahead to get the carmelized sausage taste plus I can drain the grease off.

Jets dough is very light and bubbly, indicating high yeast and high moisture dough.  I think the dough is very wet loose,  layed in pan with LOT of oil and allowed to rise in the pan.    Pat it down and top.
Consider a conveyor oven can vary the temp as it passes thru on top and bottom,  so they may hit it with different temps thru the cooking stage.
