The pizza I made last week was one of the pizzas featured in “My Pie Monday”.
This is what was said about my pie.
Norma's Pepperoni Pizza: "Brian Spangler of Apizza Scholls was on pizzamaking.com this week explaining how he makes his dough at Apizza Scholls. I asked him how my dough and crust would change when using Better for Bread Flour (which is the same thing as Harvest King). He posted that he uses Harvest King flour with a poolish to make his dough. I tried his method and used Better for Bread flour in my preferment Lehmann dough. The crust did turn out better for me than using KASL. Even at my lower bake temperature in my home oven, this pizza did turn out much better. This pizza was baked on my pizza stone at around 500 degrees F. The pizza was dressed with my regular pizza sauce, two kinds of mozzarella blended and pepperoni."—Norma427

Thanks Slice for thinking my pie was worthy enough for “My Pie Monday”!
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
