Steve invited me to his home Saturday to watch how he makes beer and also for NY style pizzas. I really enjoyed watching how Steve makes beer and the processes and methods that go into making beer. When I looked at his formula sheet for the kind of beer he was brewing I thought that sheet had a lot more details on the sheet than the ones from the dough calculation tools. Steve also said they have calculators on the brewing forum he is on and you just decide what kind of beer you want to make and go from there.
I also never had Steve’s NY style pizzas made in his home oven before. I must say his home oven sure bakes pizzas a lot better than my home oven. The NY style pizzas Steve made could top any NY style pizza I have tried in NY. Steve used KASL as the flour for his NY style pizzas. The last pizza Steve made he put the stick oregano on that Larry had sent Steve and me. Thanks so much Larry, the stick oregano on a pizza really tasted great!
I had some of Steve’s homebrews that he had made before. They sure were good.
Thanks Steve for inviting me to your home today to watch how you make beer and also for being able to taste your great NY style pizzas! :) I had a lot of fun.
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.
