    Re: Perfect Pizza Dough by Weight

    Cmon Guys! Surely perfect are the continually changing and adapting FB oven plans! Right?

    Ever since I found this site, I've been sticking my head into every WFO oven I come across and - even including our recent holiday in Italy (!) - I have yet to come across an oven with a cooler design.

    ...golf, duh!

    Dutch! I need you! My game's in the dumpster. I've made my hole in one, so I can quit anytime, but, well, you know. You could always get two in a round, right?

    Dave, Clearwater's an awesome beach in April and October. Inbetween that its way too hot for me. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder I guess.

    Being the golf instructor that I am I will differ by saying it isn't perfect....but it sure is pretty darn close...nearest I have seen to absolute perfect was a Canadian guy not many people know about Murray "Moe" Norman...he made a hole in one and someone said "Wow, that was lucky!" He said "Why? That's what I was aiming at!"

    James, that should help lesson the many questions and concerns that have come up recently about the dough recipes. I do have to ask...will anything ever be perfect?

    I have (finally) updated the original Perfect Pizza Dough by Weight posting. I should have thought of this a while back -- I can just edit the original posting. Duh.

    Anyway, check out the first posting -- which many folks are still reading for the first time. Let me know what you think. Now that I realize I can keep editing the first posting, we can keep updating it until it's, well, perfect.

    [QUOTE=asudavew;22326]Stick with:
    500 gr flour
    300 gr water
    10 gr salt
    3 gr instant yeast


    If I have Active dry yeast, it says to convert to instant is an 80% ratio of the dry, should I really be that concerned? I don't understand the difference, so really, what is the best explanation? I will get the dry if it is really more important.

    I try the recipe you posted Dave, basically half the salt as the recipe on this site. Sounds like the right menu for the second football game enjoyment.

    I've made at least 20-30 batches like this, and it works for pizza, bread, pitas, etc.

    If you want some sweetness try adding sugar.
    I would suggest around 50 grams or more.

    Momo, that Pizza looks really tasty! I'll have to try putting whole Basil leaves on next summer...

    RCLake, I have no idea what the experts are using. In Switzerland we have either dry yeast or fresh, and it comes in little portions which are measured for a kilo of flour... I just throw them in without reading the packet or the recipe, maybe a bit less for long rising times, but it works for me. So not much help there I'm afraid...

    A typo makes sense. I did take a photo, but the pizza doesn't look like anything you guys are creating. It was sure good though. This was my first "bare bones" pizza with just my own sauce, provalone cheese (in slices), fresh basil leaves, and a drizzle of olive oil. The top did not char as I wanted, but I'm working on that part. Here's a photo of it anyway. This came out of my LPG grill with 1/2" thick pizza stone directly on the grates. I'm going to have another go at it today and this time cook it just a bit longer. I'm also going to try swapping positions from the stone to an upper rack where heat collects in the top of the grill.

    I think this might actually be a typo. I got the e-book a couple of weeks ago and noticed that this recipe calls for only 10 g of salt there...

    Momo, glad to hear that the dough worked so well for you (apart from the salt ). Did you take any pictures?

    I'm new to this forum and tried this dough recipe today. I also found it to be very salty, but I thought it was due to the fact that I used Mediterranean sea salt as opposed to regular table salt. (I also used a gram scale, not by volume) Other than the saltiness, the dough was perfect and literally the best I have ever made. This is also my first experience with Caputo flour... amazing stuff! I am going to make another batch tonight with at most half the salt.

    I am making it right now for my son's bday party tonight.

    I just finished the first batch.
    And it was so salty, I had to come back here to check the recipe. And found this post.

    Did you cook with it?

    Funny part... when I put the salt in I thought it was way to much.

    I should of trusted my judgment. It taste like PlayDo.
