This is about Pizza Quest.
We're almost at the one month anniversary of the launch of PizzaQuest.com with Peter Reinhart and we are off to a great start.
We're finding our rhythm, as we post something new nearly everyday. For instance, every
Thursday we post a new video webisode, either from our quests or an
instructional; on Fridays we showcase Guest Columnists who write thoughtful
essays about artisans and artisanship of all types; on Tuesdays, I (Peter)
post a new blog entry with news and views from my perspective, and we
continue to add regularly photos from our quests to the Gallery section. In
addition, our Community Forum is growing exponentially as more participants
begin or respond to the various discussion threads.
Currently, we're running a seven-part series of webisode segments filmed at
Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles, probably the hottest pizza restaurant in the
country. Watching these videos is the closest thing to being there and, for

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.
