"The United States of Pizza" by Craig Priebe and Dianne Jacob
« on: December 26, 2016, 12:57:46 PM »
I gave a detailed review at Amazon, but just to give people an idea of what's in the book, the NY pizza dough translates to Flour 100%, Sugar 3.26%, Active Dry Yeast 1.2%, Water 66.6%, Oil 5.48%, Salt 0.97%, the Neapolitan dough is Water 78%, Salt 1.5%, Honey 1.53%, Oil 6.56%, Active Dry Yeast 1.48%.  He also puts sourdough pizza doughs into a freezer for 3 months. 

This all makes my head explode.

I wish I could be a fly on the wall of some noob trying to work with that dough.

Oh my.   :o

I just looked at the Neapolitan dough recipe via "Look Inside" on Amazon.

Once the glop is put together, it is kneaded in the mixer for 15 minutes.  If it does not pass the windowpane test, you knead in the mixer longer, up to 30 minutes more.  I don't know, maybe 45 minutes in the mixer helps, right!?   >:D

I have their book about Grilled Pizza.  It was gift from a work colleague.  I looked through it for topping ideas, and put it on a shelf somewhere.  I need to go look at the dough recipes.............
