Pizza Question

Tom,I know what you are looking for,unfortuately I have not been able to create the homemade tomato pie either.Although they share the same ingrediants,pizza dough and tomato pie dough are not the same.It also seems to me tecnique makes a big differance in the finished product.Progress cotinues with each pie ,getting closer but still not quite there yet.Here is what I have learned so fa

1) The dough needs to be much wetter than one would think.If it pulls free from the bowl and forms a ball it is to dry.This kind of trickey and takes alittle practice.Dough should be soft and stickey but not too skickey that you can't handle it.

2)Easy on the yeast.The best pie I have made so far was a mistake.I put the yeast in water that was too hot,dough hardly rose at all,thought I killed the yeast.Almost threw it away but figured what the hell,how bad could it be?Best pie so far.

3)Put dough in an oiled plastic container and put it in the fridge right away.Do not rise dough at room temp and punch down.Let dough cold rise in fridge for 24 hrs.Take out and bring to room temp 1-2 hrs. before cooking.Do not put in plastic bag.

4)Never add sugar to dough.Yeast,sugar,oil,rise and knead=bread.Oil will let the dough brown,no oil will give you a whiter crust.

5)Put your pizza stone as low as posible in your oven,I take the racks out and put the stone on the bottom of the oven.Heat oven on highest setting for 1 hr. to heat up stone.5 min. before you are ready to cook turn oven to broil,this will let the run constant while cooking.Strech dough on to peel and let it cook for a minute or 2 then remove and add sauce and toppings.Your dough will be thin and soft,pre cooking makes it much easier to handle esp. if you are going to add toppings other than sauce and cheese.Also it will give a more well done dough and help compensate for the fact that your home oven is not as hot as a commercial pizza oven.

Hope this helps,let me know if you have any ?'s , Bob
