Adapting bread rec. into pizza dough rec.
I want to turn my boyfriends favorite bread recipe into a pizza dough. It's the "beer bread with cheddar" recipe from the bread lovers bread machine cookbook. It goes a little something like this:
8 ounces flat beer
3.5 cups bread flour
3/4 cups shredded cheddar
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1.25 tsp SAF yeast.
-Obviously we're going to replace the bread flour with APF but do you think the recipe will stand up to a pizza dough? The dough recipe in the book calls for more liquid (I know the cheese sorta counts as a liquid and would match the measurement of the extra in the dough recipe) and some of the extra liquid is olive oil. Will omitting this destroy the dough? What I'm trying to get at here is can you essentially take any bread loaf recipe and turn it into a pizza dough?
