Norma,
When re-heating leftovers do it in a covered frying pan on med to med/low til heated thru. Crust will snap in your mouth. It's the only way I re-heat pizza anymore!

Looking good, Norma.  Congratulations. :D

How did it taste?  Were you able to achieve the crispy/crunchy texture?

I thought it tasted very good.  As far as I can tell I did achieve the crispy/crunchy texture, but since I never really tasted a cracker-style pizza before I really don't have anything to reference it to, so I don't know.

Thanks for your tips!   ;D  They sure helped me in this attempt and my other one.

Jon,

Thanks so much for your tip on how to reheat.  :) I do have two saved slices and will probably do a reheat later today.

It's taking multiple rolled out crusts and layering with usually oil or butter, lard between layers and rerolling. Or multiple folds and rolling, again greasing between folds. Not unlike puff pastry or using phyllo dough. Easiest achieved via sheeter roller set up, or get your workout to old fashioned way. When it works it's magical to get that multi layered crispy crust and bubbling!! :drool:

Oooo that sounds awesome and I now understand. Can that process be efficiently done in a commercial setting?

Probably better with easier access to sheeter machines and such

I'm going to try one of these tomorrow I think, looks like DKM's original recipe is only a 9hr RT dough.  I am hoping to put my old dominos thin and crispy craving to an end.

This was amazing. Never got to thank you! instead of using a mixer i used a food processor although I think it turned out perfect!

Thanks again :)  :angel: :angel: :chef: :chef:

Randy,

No, not as an active member. He last visited the site on January 2, 2017. Maybe he wanted to see if the forum was still alive and kicking ;D.

Following up on my earlier post, at Reply 4, I made two more cracker style pizzas as part of the series of pizzas under this thread. I will describe the first one in this post and the second one in the next post.

For the first pizza, I used a modification of the DKM cracker style dough recipe as previously described. The first change was that I used a very small thickness factor so that I could test the lower limits of the range of workable crust thickness. As will be seen in the dough formulation below, that thickness factor was just under 0.06 (I simply used the thickness factor from the last pizza for convenience). That was for an amount of dough to make a 13” dough skin from which I would cut out a 12” skin, the desired size of the final pizza. Doing this has the effect of lowering the thickness factor from its nominal value (just under 0.06) to a smaller value, of just under 0.05, since about one inch of the 13” skin ends up as scrap.   

In addition to the thickness factor change, I increased the amount of salt to 1.75%. I also converted the active dry yeast (ADY) used in the DKM recipe to instant dry yeast (IDY), mainly for convenience and since many members use IDY instead of ADY. Other changes, mainly to the preparation and processing of the dough, will become apparent below. The dough formulation I ended up with was as follows:

Flour (100%):
Water (36%):
IDY (0.97%):
Salt (1.75%):
Vegetable (Soybean) Oil (3.5%):
Sugar (1.2%):
Total (143.42%):
153.67 g  |  5.42 oz | 0.34 lbs
55.32 g  |  1.95 oz | 0.12 lbs
1.49 g | 0.05 oz | 0 lbs | 0.49 tsp | 0.16 tbsp
2.69 g | 0.09 oz | 0.01 lbs | 0.48 tsp | 0.16 tbsp
5.38 g | 0.19 oz | 0.01 lbs | 1.18 tsp | 0.39 tbsp
1.84 g | 0.07 oz | 0 lbs | 0.46 tsp | 0.15 tbsp
220.4 g | 7.77 oz | 0.49 lbs | TF = 0.05857
Note: The pizza size entered into the tool is 13”; the desired size of the final pizza is 12”; no bowl residue compensation is used.

Just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into this.  Been making it for about a month and it is one of the delicious pizza crust I have ever tasted.  Love the texture and flacking and, most important, I always get consistent results.  The whole family loves it.  Thank you once again, and know it is appreciated.
