There are also invaluable tips on forming dough into balls as well as it to from a pizza base.

  • The amount of water content + oven temperature gives you different kinds of crusts, a low hydration with super high temperature won't neccesarily be a dense crust

    • The AVPN had performed heroic work, both as champion and guardian of true Neapolitan pizza.That said, I think we should all heed the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: "The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions."

  • My pissa became so hard 😫....lack of kneading or what.... 00 or 0 we don't have...all purpose flour .....am very curious on pizza 🍕for the more business in NEPAL

    Mahendra GurungMahendra GurungHace 3 meses
    • all purpose flour is where you are going wrong.. The main difference between bread flour and all-purpose flour is a matter of protein. Bread flour, which comes in white and whole wheat varieties, has a higher protein content than all-purpose, usually 11-13%. It's called “bread flour” because most bread requires higher amounts of protein to produce lots of gluten which allows for pockets of air to be formed during fermentation and cooking.

    • It's definitely good to practice and work out what works best for you! There is no right or wrong. It depends on what flour is being used as not all can take the same levels of hydration. 🙌

    • @BecozBecoz when you do slow proofing in the fridge the dough Hydration is increased by 3-4%

    • Haha here too Nice...I get it they just bullshit by giving exact percentage of water some times you have to either add more water or flour by eye balling and feeling the dough ...never Ever these measurements are accurate ...just reference material

  • What are you using to coat your dough before you work with it? Semolina or Just flour?

    Adrian VakillyAdrian VakillyHace 5 meses
    • We recommend using semolina flour, as it's slightly more coarse than 0/00 flour. It helps to launch the pizzas into the oven a little easier, but it also provides a nice texture to the base and crust. The, like hydration, is down to personal preference. Some people will use the same flour they used to make the dough or use a 50/50 split of flour and semolina.

  • So just a question about the dough, can you freeze it? i mean if you roll it out like a normal pizza bottom you would buy

    DianaGolan2020 GolanDianaGolan2020 GolanHace 5 meses
    • We recommend freezing after it's initial but fermentation. Ball up into dough balls, place into a container or deal-lock bag and place into the freezer. This can be frozen for up to 3 months. To defrost, take out the night before, place into a covered bowl or dough tray and place into the fridge. Take them out at least 6 hours before you want to cook them, as this will allow them to come up to room temperature.

  • Which way is crispier crust ?

    Jeffrey IsztokJeffrey IsztokHace 6 meses
    • Bake at a lower temperature for longer as this will help to dry out the base and make the crust crispier. You can always add some extra virgin olive oil or some fine semolina flour for an extra crisp texture! Hope this helps.

    • You could modify a cheap electric oven to produce ~300 C temperatures, not quite as high as these thins, but good enough. I've done it myself. You can check out alex's channel to see how you can modify an oven, but he goes way beyond what's necessary.
