There are joys and times I am happy I own a very small pizza business. I like to learn about different styles of pizzas and experiment to see what kind of results I can achieve. I also get to talk to nice customers and learn from other people that make different kinds of pizza.
This last week and some other weeks, when there are problems with something at market, are one of the times when I really wonder about owning your own small business. Since I am own a small pizza business most of the work needs to be done by myself. There can be a problems sometimes, because I am not the best carpenter or fixer-upper. I can do some work by myself, but it is always a challenge. Last week from all the raining and storms, my deck oven vent was really leaking. The leaking managed to go onto the floor tiles and then a lot of them loosened up. Tuesday was a nightmare in trying to avoid tripping over the loose tiles. I knew I had to do something about the loose tiles. I went shopping to get some more tiles like I had laid before, but there weren't any like those tiles, so I had to try and get something that matched somewhat. Then it was off to get that sticky stuff that holds the tiles in place. I pulled up and scraped the tiles that were loose yesterday and today, did manage to get the new tiles laid today. What a sticky mess, but at least I won't be tripping over loose tiles anymore. The market manager got his maintenance men to start fixing my ceiling and where the water was coming in at the deck oven vent. At least I didn't have to tackle that. This was only one problems that happens when you own a small business and have to do things yourself. lol The small train that crosses the tracks at market was going by on my way to market today.
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.
