Pizza dough trouble, best bet to salvage?

May 4, 2014 - 7:23am -- mini_maggie

So late last night before bed, I threw together Floyd's pizza dough, using 00 pizza flour.  Had initially planned to do Forkish's IY dough from FWSY (weight based) but realized too late that I should have started that schedule after dinner instead of just before bed, so switched to Floyd's because that's what fit my schedule now.

Adapting crust recipe from AP to 00

May 2, 2014 - 8:28pm -- mini_maggie

Would you expect to substitute an equal volume or weight of Italian 00 pizza flour for AP in a recipe?  Or expect to need adjustment?  As it's finer, I'd think maybe there is more weight of 00 per cup compared to AP? 

Was thinking of trying Floyd's pizza crust recipe, but it's in cups and for AP, and I wanted to try the 00 flour I picked up. Pizza recipes in FWSY give weight, but are also for AP and I'd like to know generally if equal weight substitution should be expected to work.   

Thanks for any input!

We 3 gmas grilled/baked naan and flatbread!

April 27, 2014 - 9:07am -- gmagmabaking2

What great fun we had grilling naan and baking flatbread... Helen and I grilled naan with yeast and yogurt and Barb baked Chad Robertson's flatbread... and made many mini pizzas... 

The lead in picture is Helen's naan. You can see the nice dark ghee mixed through it.

 She served this with a great curried rice!

The New York Times on Home Made PIZZA

Will this make pizza at home a phenomena like the no-knead bread article?



The recipe is at the bottom.  The video is worth watching just to see how the man makes the pizzas.

Interestingly enough, it involves overnight retarding of the dough and recommends the use of 00 flour for a portion of the dough.
