Dough Ball Discoloration
« on: November 13, 2021, 06:41:53 PM »
Noticed this on a dough ball. Was in fridge 72 house and on the counter an hour. Standard KABF/62% formula following all usual procedures. Never saw before. Can anyone identify this? TY. (Top looks odd as its in plastic, no prob there.)

Looks like a microorganism contamination of some kind. Was the container where the dough spent 24 hours in the fridge squeaky clean?

Gosh, I bet Tom would have known exactly what this is.

I base this on nothing but I bet it is harmless. Having said that, I would not risk it without getting an expert evaluation.
I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

Thanks for the replies, guys. Baked, eaten and we’re still here.

Turned out it was strictly surface and I was able to snip the brown away with scissors. The second dough ball from the same batch was without blemish. Gonna have to assume it was left to ferment with unnoticed contamination. Maybe cocoa from the counter.

In any event, thanks again and.. Pizza!
