crispy crumbly
« on: May 15, 2019, 11:55:18 AM »
The best thin chicago style I've had were crispy and "crumbly".  How would one get that profile in a crust?  It wasn't just a dry crunchy crust like some people make.

I'd love to know the answer to this as well. I've been experimenting with yeast-less recipes but i haven't found anything I really liked yet

Crispy? Crunchy Chicago style thin crust? I can't say that I've ever seen those adjectives used in the same sentence with Chicago style thin crust. The four corners (party cut) are always the first to go as they have a little something that might be construed as being crispy, but the rest of the pizza is closer to a ravioli (it's that soft). That's not to say that a crispy Chicago style pizza isn't a good thing, and it can be made, but it really isn't a Chicago style pizza when made crispy/crunchy.

Could a pie crust be something closer to what you are describing, Wonderboy?

You might to take a look at the Barnaby's recipe as a start, based on your description.
