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.

Another Pizza on the BBQ Grill 8/13/2011

I decided this morning since I was going to make tomato sauce today, I would give my BBQ grill another go, at trying to make a pizza.  Steve had given me some wood at market on Tuesday, to try out in the BBQ grill.   I just mixed the dough this morning with a wooden spoon, let it rest, and then kneaded it a little and let it rest again.  I used Caputo Pizzeria flour this time as the flour.  I only made the hydration 58% because I didn’t want this dough sticky at all, in case the BBQ grill wouldn’t work out in some way.  I only used flour, salt, ADY, and water in the formula.

The BBQ grill did get to high temperatures today and the bake was fast.  I really like seeing the flames from the pieces of wood Steve gave me!

  2. prolix,

    Thanks! I hope your pizza turns out well! Pizza is one of my favorite foods. The kind of dough used can create so many different tastes and also the choice of dressings has an influence on the taste too.
