Effects of Different Ingredients
« on: July 19, 2017, 11:39:29 PM »
Hello, I was wondering if there is a post somewhere that summaries the effects of varying different ingredients.   Like "more sugar does this: ___", "oil does this:___", "milk does this:___", etc.   If not a single post, then maybe best boards to read to get this info.   Thanks, aeb

I think we covered this very question a short time ago, perhaps Peter could weigh in and pull up the posts for you.

Meantime I always search straight from Google as a habit to get results from Pizzamaking.com. Works better for me than the Tapatalk search anyway. Whatever ingredient you want to know about, e.g. oil, this is how I search from Google, sans quotes obviously:

"Oil in dough Pizzamaking.com"

Usually I don't even do the .com part. Type that, replacing "oil" for any ingredient and it will show a bunch of relevant posts from Pizzamaking.com. I don't know of a single post that lists the results of every single ingredient in one post and I doubt one exists.

You might also want to look at the forum's Pizza Glossary at https://www.pizzamaking.com/glossary.html since that document covers a lot of ground related to ingredients used in pizza dough. The abbreviations list at https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=20056.msg196875#msg196875 may also be helpful to connect things together.

For those who want to do a deeper dive on ingredients that are used in pizza dough, there are several links to Yeast and Dough Conditioners, Additives, and Improvers, as well as other potentially useful information, at the thread at https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=40212.msg401012#msg401012.

Dave,

That should be easy enough to do although I wasn't really trying to make a comprehensive post. I will tweak my post to add another link or so to move it further in the right direction. Other changes may follow as they occur to me.
