This post is just to explain how aggressively the preferment Lehmann dough is rolled out with my heavy rolling pin, and also aggressively docked to be able to make a Greek pizza. I start out by rolling the dough (with my heavy rolling pin), then aggressively docking the dough on both sides (many times), to be able to make a pizza from this dough. The dough still rises in the pan, so the preferment Lehmann dough must be pretty strong to be able to still rise, in a steel pan. It amazes me that the preferment Lehmann dough can be abused so much, and still make a decent pie.
This Greek pizza was dressed with herb infused oil, tomato sauce, different kinds of white cheddars, mozzarella, and spinach. The edges of the Greek pizza do get nice and crunchy from the cheeses melting down on the sides of the steel pan. I do really love Greek style pizzas. :)
Different types of flours can be used to make Greek style pizzas.

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.
