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.

New Kitten and my dough and Pizza making 4/18/2011

Since my dog found the newborn kittens, my time making dough and also making pizza has slowed down a bit.  I am still making experimental doughs and my preferment dough and doing a few other experiments, but I never realized how hard it is to take care of a new born kitten that was left to die outside, by a stray cat.  Taking care of a newborn kitten is very time consuming, considering it needs fed around the clock, it needs its bottom cleaned, bedding changed and washed, sterilized bottles all the time, and making formula around the clock.  It is also rewarding though, to be able to see how much the kitten grows each day and learns new things, just like babies do.  I know I have lost a lot of sleep though this process, but wouldn’t change things anything I have done so far.

Raising a new born kitten is something like learning to make dough or pizza.  Something new is learned each day.  Hopefully Chance will live longer than Lucky did.  Chance has more than doubled his weight in the almost 3 weeks since he was born and left outside in the cold.  I thought she was dead when my daughter and I tried to warm her.  Chance can now stand on all of her four legs and walk some that way.  Her eyes are opened now.

I look forward to learning more about pizza dough and also learning how to take care of a newborn kitten.

Four new dough experiments this week also have kept me busy, but they will also help me learn more about dough.

A few pictures of Chance a few days ago.  To think just a few weeks ago, I never thought I would be taking care of a newborn baby kitten..lol
