Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Tried FB pizza dough recipe but I have some Qs

    The last two nights I made FB pizza dough. Tonight I went overboard and made an 11" pie with 205gms of dough. I've always wanted to make a thin crusted pie but this one was a little too thin. I can correct that issue but I can't get the crust to brown up as much as I would like. I'm cooking on a stone and have the oven at 550 and alow plenty of time for my stone to heat up. I used to use a different recipie but I started to buy Trader Joes dough and have been able to get those doughs to brown up. What's up with this FB dough? I suspect it works best with a hotter oven. What can I add to it brown up? Sugar? Oil?
    thanks

    Re: Tried FB pizza dough recipe but I have some Qs

    I bake quite often in my electric oven (in between WF bake offs) and the characteristics are quite different from WFO baking. The WFO and STONE recipes differ in the hydration levels. The WFO recipe requires a wetter dough. The end results (at least in my Electric/WF oven setup) find the electric quite a bit drier than the WFO pizzas as they cook for about 5-7 mins, whereas WFO cook 2-3 mins. I'm not sure that you can compare them as they are quite different processes. Difficult to analyse bought dough as you probably don't know what went into it...

    The FB recipes are very good, though as always you will need to adjust water/flour to get the right consistency. I used to go slavishly according to the recipe numbers but after some info from posters here I now read the texture of the dough for best results. Perhaps you can just experiment with different hydration levels and see if that affects the browning capabilities of the pizza.

      I'm going to try the remainder of the dough I made yesterday. I'm going to make it thicker and see if the extra day and the thicker dough make any difference.
