Thin Crisp Pizza Dough

There is such great Bakers here at TFL, I feel every bit the Tyro making this post,

but here goes.

I changed the all-purpose flour in the recipe [Flat Breads and Pizza--Olive Oil Dough on page

134] in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day and it turns out great tasting, thin and crisp pizza dough.  I

used 2 cups of sifted Priarie Gold, 1 cup of Semolina and 3 1/2 cups of bread flour [Bouncer brand from GFS.]

This will be my pizza dough from now on.  I'm sure it will do a bang-up job on Calzone

or empanada type pies as well and etc. as it is very easy to work with.

Here's the original ingredients from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day

2 3/4 cups luke warm water

1 1/2 Tablespoons granulated yeast [1 1/2 packets]

1 1/2 Tablespoons salt

1 Talespoon sugar

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

6 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

[Mix ingredients, let rise in warm spot for 2-3 hours, cover, then chill.

Cut off a hunk whenever you need it. Use within 2 weeks.]

Just wanted to say that I have adopted your Thin Crisp Pizza Dough.  I thought your addition of the unbleached bread flour, to compensate for the no-gluten-but-tasty-Semolina seemed like a good idea.   Great modification....thanks, Earl.
