Your results, regarding "dough handling", are kind of surprising given that KASL is 14.2% protein, Power is 13.5%, and Mondako is 11.9%. I would have thought the blend would have been the easiest to turn out. Any other discernible thoughts regarding the flavor or texture of the crusts?
I also thought the results were surprising. I am not sure if it was because the 50/50 blend of Mondako and Power Flour and the 100% Power Flour were mixed in my Kitchen Aid, or if it was because the formula for one batch is a lower TF than I am using right now for the Preferment Lehmann dough. (Since Peter set-forth the formulation for the preferment Lehmann dough, I have changed the TF to a little bit thicker, because I find that works better for me.) It even could be since I usually make my batches of preferment in much larger batches than for just one preferment that could have something to do with the final pizzas. I have noted before that preferments made in larger batches seem so much stronger and seem to form more gluten in the 3 day cold ferment compared to just one batch of preferment. The larger batches seem so strong when you try to pull them out of the Cambro container and I can really see the strong gluten strands, which I canít see as much in the one dough batches.
I donít know if I would try the blends or the flours plain, that I tried in this thread on a basic Lehmann dough, if that would give me different results or not. I donít know how a preferment affects the final texture of a pizza other than it seems to make the final pizza more artisan and gives a little better flavor. It is all a mystery to me.
From these last two experiments and the one with the KABF, I couldnít notice any big difference in the flavor or texture of the crumb. There was a little better browning on the bottom crust, and a little more crispness in the rim in some of the pizzas, but the pizza sounded about the same when cutting the slices. When I tried the 100% Power flour on the Luigiís thread the pizza was a lot more crisper, but then no oil was added and also there was a lower TF.
I wish I could figure all this out, but donít know a way to test what I have seen so far.
