Pizza dough - Favorite recipe? "00" dough?
I've tried a few pizza dough recipes and thought I'd ask people what their favorite pizza dough recipe is (thin crust pizza). Also, do find there is a difference in the quality of your pizza when you use "00" type pizza dough versus all-purpose flour?
Thanks in advance.
My current favorite is the one from Peter Reinhart's Artisan Breads Every Day but substituting half the flour with 00 and using the cast iron skillet/broiler cooking method.
I had tried this recipe previously without substituting in the 00 flour and didn't like it, however, at that time I was also cooking it on a pizza stone at 550 so I can't say if it's the 00 flour or the skillet/broiler method that made it work.
'00' is difficult to get decent results from unless you have a very high burning oven (800+ degrees). There will, of course, be a difference because the amount of protien found in both AP and '00' are very vast. 00 won't brown as easy in a home conventional oven, unless it's completely tricked out (i.e. Dangerous).
I would advise using bread flour over AP flour for home use. It's a nice medium.
