Making the Legendary Prince St. Pizza Square Slice
« on: August 26, 2019, 04:51:51 AM »
Don't know if anyone might want to try, but thought this was a good video.  Any thoughts on making this pizza as far as dough recipe, or what might be tried?

I just had this pizza yesterday, it was great, but nothing out of the ordinary for dough.   I would start with a standard NY with oil/sugar at 60 percent hydration.    Its not like the Mamas TOO dough which was exceptional and definitely at a much higher hydration.

I really liked Mamas Too dough in the squares. It was good in the slice pies, but I really thought it was exceptional in the squares.

When we were at Mama's Too on Chau's tour, we were told it was All Trumps at 70% hydration plus 5-10% oil.

I thought that Prince Street used fresh mozz on the square? Looks like this guy is using aged.

totally agree with this Jon.   My favorites of my trip this weekend were the squares at Mamas Too and the thin at Scarr's, but the thin at mamas too were exceptional as well.

Why sugar?

Because in the video the owner tells you that the dough has salt, flour, yeast oil, sugar.    Its a basic NY style dough.  I didnt taste any sweetness per se, so I would say no more than 2%.   The crust was great, but what really sets it apart is the sweet spicy sauce combined with the cheese and that particular roni in abundance.   Its just a great flavor combo.

Hans,

Thanks!  It was good but didn't have any Hormel Rosa Grande to try.

I agree


Thanks Deb!  Worth another attempt.   :-D

I think that's what they use, but I don't think that's what you see in the guy's clone.

No, definitely not in the clone but maybe in the one that he did at the beginning.

I think I remember seeing another video here where it was more obvious.

At 1:10 in this video, he says it's fresh mozz.

Craig and Deb,

Do you think he might mean regular block mozzarella when he says fresh mozzarella? 





About 6:27 seconds in the below video it looks like he is picking up regular sliced mozzarella.
