Grill Dough w/ Buckwheat
« on: December 30, 2006, 12:01:59 PM »
I got a grilling book by Bobby Flay for Christmas this year which has a recipe for Buckwheat pizza dough with pizza being done on the grill.

1 1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon yeast
pinch of sugar
1 1/2 cup AP flour
3/4 cup buckwheat flour
1 teaspoon salt

Makes 4 8" pizza's.  I think I might try it.  Wondering if anyone else has tried this recipe?

 Not to take any thing away from Bobby Flay as i also enjoy some of the things he makes. But i have seen him do a terrible job making pizza on Throw Down with Bobby Flay. Also the the recipe calls for almost 100% hydration which will likely take a good long rest period to absorb the buckwheat which is more of a ground kernal than a wheat flour.
 With the lack of gluten in the buckwheat,  I would not expect this dough to turn out anything like a traditional pizza dough. But hey its worth a shot i guess if you want to try something different.      Chiguy
