An attempt at cracker crust (with pics)
« on: January 24, 2014, 11:57:06 AM »
Hey All!

I figured I'd do a few cracker style for a friend's SuperBowl party and wanted to do a practice one this week.
Here are the toppings I'm considering:

BBQ chicken:      Chicken, BBQ sauce, smoked gouda, cilantro, red onion
Steakhouse:       Grilled steak, blue cheese, sliced garlic, monterey jack, arugula, balsamic reduction, parmesan
The Goat:            Grilled chicken, olive oil, sliced garlic, oregano, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese, fresh basil, mozzarella , sundried tomato, balsamic reduction
Bianca:                 Ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, applewood bacon, sautéed baby spinach, roasted Garlic
Diavola:               Spicy tomato sauce, oregano, mozzarella, spicy salami, basil

So I tried a BBQ Chicken this week with a 45% hydration dough.  Just for kicks, I used 15% whole wheat flour, the rest bread flour.
It turned out pretty good but I should've used a higher temp to get more coloring on the bottom.  I felt like 10 mins at 450F wasn't enough.
I did another at 550 and 8 mins seemed to do the trick!
