The same formulation I used last week, turned out a lot better this week when making a pizza. The dough ball fermented well in one day. The dough ball was only left to warm-up for about 40 minutes. The dough ball opened up so easily and not much flour was used on the bench or to flour the dough ball. When it came time to slide it into the oven it went in smoothly without any sticking issues. The pizza baked very well, had really nice oven spring, a nice moistness in the crust, good bottom crust browning, and a good taste in the crust. The only thing that could have been a little better was the browning on the rim, but it wasn’t bad. Steve, my tasters and I enjoyed this pie.
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.
