I made another attempt using the same formulation and only doing a one day cold ferment. The dough ball was left at room temperature for 4 hrs. yesterday before the dough ball was opened.
The “real kicker” is that for this attempt, using the same formulation, I used KASL instead of ADM Gigantic bromated flour. The resulting pizza was the same in every way as using bromated flour. I have been playing around with bromated flours and unbromated flours for a long while and although many members won’t agree with me, I find a flour like KASL can’ bring the same taste, bake, crispness, color and characteristics as using a bromated flour. I sure don’t know, and haven‘t done enough tests, but believe it all has to do with the formulation and if a similar high-gluten flour is used. I really don’t think bromated flour make any differences in this pizza, at least when using this formulation.
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.
