Well, Betty (my starter) got brought out last night, but after fighting traffic and the crowds in the grocery store and my computer, I just fed her and let her rest. I'm now realising that instead of putting her back in the fridge, she's still in the oven. My recipe calls for using the starter cold, if she's room temp, do you think that will make a difference? I kind of doubt it but I'm curious what you all think.
By the way, she's named Betty after Betty Crocker, the cookbook I got the recipe from. I know, not nearly as advanced as Peter Reinhart, but I like to play/research on several different approaches so I'll work my way up to Peter's barms and sponges!
My first pizza was a success, what a disaster! It seems an oxymoron. Success on the first try? How can that be bad? I’m concerned that I may have jinxed myself, that all further attempts at pizza dough may now be futile. Of course, I still keep trying, recreating, revamping and otherwise attempting to improve both on my skills and the recipes I find. Of course, sometimes I screw up, but usually I have something edible.
Pizza is one of my favorite foods. If I were to live on two things for the rest of my life it would be chili and pizza, of course, I do request the ability to make endless permutations of each! This recipe was collected with others from the internet (thanks be to Google). Unfortunately, I can no longer find the website so I will consider it a serendipitous event…something I needed just then, and there it was.
