I went to Root’s Car Show and Flea Market today to look around. I always enjoy being outside when the weather is nice. I don’t get a lot of time to walk around at market when I am working at my small pizza stand. Of course, the inside of market wasn’t open today, or regular outside vendors weren’t there either.
I found a nice food mill for 5.00, which I thought was a bargain. I didn’t find any antiques that I thought were really nice. Someone had fresh made banana bread and I bought some for my mother and myself. I also got to talk to some outside food vendors that I know. My old funnel cake stand I used to own wasn’t open today, but I did take a picture of it. I really miss that stand I used to own.
I also checked on the 3 dough ball batch I am trying out for the Sicilian pizzas. I would like to start to try to sell Sicilian pizzas at my pizza stand. The dough batch seemed to be fermenting nicely.
The spring Car Show and Flea Market are for a good cause, with the profits going to the Clare House this year. I did give some gift certificates out for my small pizza stand.
After I walked around for awhile and talked to people, I left to go to an Amish farm that sells great BBQ chicken dinners. I purchased dinners for my mother, daughter and myself. The Amish farm also sells many kinds of flowers and I picked some up for my mother and myself. The Amish farm had fresh strawberries, but they were to expensive since they are the first one of this year. I will wait until the prices come down some.
There sure were some “hot” looking cars at the Car Show today.
I then went home and started planting vegetables, tomatoes and herbs in my small garden. Life is good in the country!
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.
