11/12/19 Dough

410 g Bread Flour
184 g Water (45%)
6 g IDY
7 g Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt
41 g Sunflower  oil
8 g LDMP


Dough Prep
4 Day cold bulk ferment in fridge, dough balls formed and stored in fridge for 6 hours.  Dough balls warmed at RT for 3 hours.

Sauce
2 cup Stanislaus Full Red Super Heavy Tomato Puree
1 cup Stanislaus 7/11 ground tomatoes
1/4 cup Peroni beer
1/4 tsp granulated garlic powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/16 tsp salt
1/32 tsp onion powder


Cheese
Tillamook LMPS Mozzarella, Smoked Provolone, Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar, Raclette, Romano, Murray's Pecorino Calabrese

The Bake
5-6 min par bake  (parchment on steel @ 530) + 5-6 minutes fully dressed (screened on steel).

Results
I went back to my regular recipe using 410 g of flour, but rolled out 2 skins instead of 3.  This worked well with my 16" pie bag - the pizzas were slightly thicker, but still crispy.

At this point, I’m not sure I could pick a favorite between your pies & Tommy’s. The only difference might be the slight sourdough flavor of Tommy’s. Have you experimented with old-dough methods?

I've used starters and poolish in other recipes, but not this one.  My current view is that the right type/amount of fat in the dough + nailing the sauce is the key to getting my pizzas closer to Tommy's.

3/18/20 Dough

410 g Bread Flour
186 g Water (45.5%)
6 g IDY
7 g Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt
25 g Sunflower  oil
8 g LDMP


Dough Prep
6 Hour RT bulk ferment, dough balls stored in fridge for 3 days. Dough balls warmed at RT for 3 hours.

Sauce
1 cup Stanislaus Full Red Super Heavy Tomato Puree
1/2 cup Stanislaus 7/11 ground tomatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp granulated garlic powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/16 tsp salt
1 tbsp parmesan cheese


Cheese
Tillamook LMPS Mozzarella, Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar (1-2oz)

The Bake
4.5 min par bake (parchment on steel @ 520) + 4.5 minutes fully dressed (screened on steel).

Results
We recently completed a kitchen remodel, including a new convection oven, so I reverted back to my main recipe and workflow to test out the new oven.  Three dough balls made from the recipe.  I rolled out 2 skins using my 14" pie bag and froze the third dough ball for future use.  The oven temp was dropped to 520 to account for a hotter oven and used the convention setting for the final 4 minutes only.

I used my normal sauce, but mixed in some parm instead of sprinkling it on the pizza post bake.  I realized that at some point last year I started mis-stating my sauce recipe.  The measurements above are the correct ones.  1 cup full red + a 1/2 cup of 7/11

Thought the pizzas turned out well and I'm finally getting crisp pepperoni's from the convection setting.

3/26/20 Dough

205 g Kryol High Gluten Flour
93 g Water (45.5%)
3 g IDY
3.5 g Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt
16 g Sunflower  oil
4 g LDMP


Dough Prep
3 Hour RT bulk ferment, dough balls stored in fridge for 2 days. Dough balls warmed at RT for 4 hours.

Sauce
1 cup Stanislaus Full Red Super Heavy Tomato Puree
1/2 cup Stanislaus 7/11 ground tomatoes
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp granulated garlic powder
1/4 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/16 tsp salt
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
Dash of ground fennel seed


Cheese
Tillamook LMPS Mozzarella, Cracker Barrel Vermont White Cheddar (1-2oz)

The Bake
4.5 min par bake (parchment on steel @ 520) + 4.5 minutes fully dressed (screened on steel).

Results
I halved my normal recipe in order to use up my remaining Kryol flour that I had.  Deviating from my regular procedure, I rolled out a single skin and left it in the pie bag for 4 hours to relax.  The second pizza pictured was made from last week's dough from the freezer.  Interesting results - like a thick cracker, without needing to laminate the dough whatsoever.  Between the Kryol flour and the bread flour, I thought the Kryol flour produced a slightly lighter crust  (consistency, not color). 

One note about the sauce - salt + parm seems to be making the sauce a bit too salty for my tastes.  I'll likely omit the salt next time and re-evaluate.
