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.

“Pizza Girl” is going to the gym and making “pizza” :)

My oldest daughter and granddaughter joined a local gym in our area.  They both invited me to go along to the gym with them, because guests are free. I do walk everyday with the dogs and do get exercise at market and while I do other things, but know my body is not in the best fitness.

I did go to the gym today for the first time in my life. What a nice new adventure. It was a blast and I did get good exercise.  I did things on various exercise machines for over 2 hours.  At least my cardio was good while I was on the sit-down bicycle and the treadmill, both for a half an hour each.  All the exercise machines were new to me and I had to learn how to use them.  We all had a great time!  Some of those legs lifts with weights, can really make my legs tired..lol Hopefully I will be able to go to the gym with my daughter and granddaughter at least 4 or 5 times a week. I do need to step up my fitness a notch.

I am making another Peter Reinhart dough today also, so I am still the “pizza girl”.   I really like playing around with different doughs and seeing how the crust will taste in the final pizza.  There are many kinds of pizzas I haven’t explored as of now.

Hopefully I will become better at making pizzas and also get in better shape.

See if I can get in better shape, than I am now.
