That is awesome pizza info. I've been using all purpose flour all the time & the pizzas come out well except for the crust - it seems rather crunchy & biscuit-like. Is using bread flour really worth it?

Susan Sady said...

It is to me. The higher gluten content gives you a crust that's chewy and light at the same time.

Thank you so much, this is the best pizza info I found so far!

Can i use wheat flour?

Susan Sady said...

Here is my Whole Wheat Pizza Dough recipe: http://www.susanscookingschool.com/wholewheatpizza.html
Please note that I use a combination of whole wheat flour and white bread flour in this recipe.

when baking, does the pizza stretch and rise even more? in the end, i want my pizza about a half inch thick and 12 inches as the diameter. when i shape it, what should the demensions of the pizza be before it is in the oven that would result to my goal? thank you so much

Susan Sady said...

Pizza will rise in the oven, but not stretch. Stretch it out to the diameter you would like the finished pizza to have before placing in oven.

what if you want to make more dough? Do you still use the same amount of yeast and salt? Thanks!

After refrigeration, should I wait until it gets warm and then divide in to pieces and let it rise again? Or should I divide right after refrigeration in to pieces and let the pieces warm up and rise?

Susan Sady said...

I do it both ways, but it's a little easier to round if the dough warms up a bit.

I need to make 10 pizza doughs. To be used within a 3day period. . How to store the dough and what to do with it to have the taste of them being freshly made once the toppings are added?

Susan- I have a problem dun dun dun... My dough tastes like a pretzel! here's the recipe I used:

4.5 cups bread flour
1 3/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup olive oil
1 3/4 cup water

Do you have any idea why? every thing thing seemed to come out right, except for the taste of the dough...i mean its passable, but its bothersome. Please help!
