  • Pizza dough balls in Naples

    Did you see this one on YouTube? Excellent. I've always had trouble with the "push the dough through a little hole" technique. These guys are great. Also, note the Caputo T shirts. :-)

    Definitely not 63% hydration.

      I wish I could understand what they're saying. It looks like he's tucking the ends in and squeezing off the ball, creating the surface tension that way. I guess that would be faster than cutting individual pieces.

      That dough does look a lot less sticky. The one he threw on the table almost bounced! None of mine have ever approached bouncy...

        I have watched other videos of Italians spinning pizza dough to make pizzas and in all of the examples the doug looked like it was very stiff. Much lower hydration levels than what seems to be the norm with the formulas on this site.

          Wonder how consistent their ball size/weight is? Am i the only wacko who weighs his doughballs (notice I said DOUGHballs) within a 1/4 oz?

          When I practiced in a local pizzaria they weighed their"s too. You folks?

            I weigh mine to within a few grams *sheepish look*

              We weigh ours...to within reason

                Dearohdearohdear. Well since you ask...

                No guys, I never weigh my balls. I've always thought that consistency and handling are more important than mere size.

                  Especially the handling, Frances.

                      I think I can probably guess who else was on your list...

                      ...but in the rapidly changing world we live in, don't you think its nice when some things stay predictably the same?
