Looking for dough making tutorial
« on: March 22, 2012, 06:31:17 PM »
I'm just about done with my LBE and am dying to burn some dough. I was lucky to find 6 in 1 tomatoes at the specialty food  store and have stocked up on mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Just bought some nice deli sliced pepperoni and a shining new digital scale.

Is there any links to some tutorials on basic dough making? One member suggested picking a style and review the postings but that really isn't helping someone who is after the basics. Someone uses bread flour, another uses all purpose, someone hydrates at 62%, another at 64%, someone refrigerates for a day, someone else for three.

Give me a recipe and some detailed instructions and allow me to become one with the dough and have some success. Looking at making a American style and eventually trying thin and cracker styles. But right now I have questions like how long can I refrigerate the dough, what about freezing, what's the conversion rate to yield 2, 4 or 6 twelve inch pies?

Thanks for any suggestions....

First off, take a deep breath, exhale, pizza making is an involved process, it's not a simple recipe and method as so many websites would have you believe. It's an ongoing study of so many variables that's it's quite impossible to hand you some made to order cookie cutter recipe that will work for you in your oven. We can offer some starting points, but first browse through the sections, there are many recipes to start with. It took me over a month of trying different formulations for my LBE before I was satisfied with the result. The LBE initial concept was to create a Naples style pizza in a DIY gas oven. Enjoy the journey.

Here is a good simple Reinhart dough that is easy to handle and stretch.
Follow the steps to a T and it will be very good. Day three has the best flavor IMHO.
I make this quite often.
