first pie in a while
« on: July 13, 2009, 12:58:46 PM »
Hi everyone
I havent posted here in a really long time but a few days ago I got a nice recipe for a pie
3.25 cups flour
.5 tsp + 0.0625 tsp yeast
.5 tbsp + .5 tsp salt
1.5 C + .125 C. water

Mix : flour, yeast and salt
Pour water and beat with a kitchen aid until the dough becomes 'shaggy'
Beat the dough on low for 1 minute
scrape the sides
beat on high for 3 minutes stopping half way to scrape the sides
let rest for 10 minutes
separate the dough into two balls
let sit for 3 hours to rise in oil bowls slightly covered with a cloth
refrigerate for 1 - 24 hours

I made a cheese and a sauce less with Parmesan and olive oil salt pepper etc

Sorry for the bad pictures only have a webcam

Hi, Milanocookies56,

I'm wondering what size pizzas you made with the dough... and how you baked it (stone?) and at what temperature?  What was the finished crust like?

I'm guessing you cut the recipe down from a larger one, hence the .5 tbsp + .5 tsp which actually totals 2 tsp salt and .125 c is actually 2 T water.  Might make it easier to measure!

Sure wish we could see some better pics!  Thanks for the effort, though!

Never trust a skinny cook!
