Something different from pizza dough

I know this has nothing to do with pizza, other than pizza dough is the basis for the "recipe". I had a ball of the dough I used to make for pizza in the freezer, but since I found PR's Neo-Neapolitan formula, I was loathe to use it for pizza. I also recently saw Giada de Laurentiis make doughnuts using pizza dough on her show. Armed with the dough and a big jug of canola oil, I made some of my own doughnuts this weekend.

I just rolled them in cinnamon sugar per the recipe.  They were pretty darned good!

They tasted delicious.  The texture wasn't exactly Krispy-Kreme worthy, but more chewy.  Yet they were still delicious and just flew off the plate!

What is this, please??!! Is there a link to it? I'm keen to start making sourdough Pizza and would be very pleased to try this...

Hi Andrew this is the closest, I say closest it is the same if not better, even if I do say so myself, to the pizza dough I get in my local Italian restaurant. This recipe is set for an 16-20 hour rise I think, sorry can't remember without looking, but use about 10-20% starter and it will take about 6-8 hours, use about 40-60% and it will take about 4 hours very roughly speaking.

Sure Andrew, Floyd included the recipe (from Peter Reinhart) in his Pizza Primer. Scroll down and you'll find the instructions. It's not sourdough, but it IS fantastic. Be sure to post about it if you try it! =)

for the link. I'll give this a whirl. But I'll try to convert to sourdough - I am hooked on it!

Those doughnuts look better than crispy cream they look just how I like 'em.
