This Week - NY Style Pizza

Recommended Posts

nypizzadough.jpg

 

This week I'm trying my hand at NY style pizza from the Ken Forkish Elements of Pizza book.

 

If you don't have this book, BUY IT NOW!!!  You won't regret it!

 

 This dough recipe is as follows:

 

500g Bread Flour (I used KA artisan bread flour) - 100%

320g 95° Water - 64%

14g fine sea salt - 2.8%

1.2g active dry yeast - 0.2%

 

I dissolved the salt and yeast in the warm water and then worked the flour in by hand.  I started with 400g of flour and then worked in the final 100g.  After getting it completely mixed, I covered it in my 6qt dough tub and let it ferment at room temp for 2 hours.  I then removed it, divided it into thirds and shaped three dough balls.  These were covered with plastic on a plate and went into the fridge.  I put these in the fridge at around 11pm on Tuesday night.  I plan to cook Friday evening around 6 or 7 pm.  These need to be in the fridge at least 48 hours and up to 72 hours according to the book.  I will pull them from the fridge about 2 hours before I'm ready to shape them into pizzas.

@ckreef good idea.  I will give them 4 hours...

 

@aljoseph probably around 600 degrees

 

@shuley  i have them far enough apart where its not a problem.  If they do come together just fill the seam with some flour and use your bench knife to separate them.

 

@Freddyj kamado joe with the pizza porta

Nailed this pizza!

 

This NY Style pizza dough from the Elements of Pizza book is going to be one of my two go-to pizza doughs in the future.  This was exceptional.  I also made the NY style sauce from the book as well and it was beautiful.  I am going to modify THAT sauce recipe and technique into something of my own in the future.  I will be publishing a Man Cave Meals video of this cook in its entirety very soon...

 

@ckreef

 

I got my dough out of the fridge almost 4 hours before I was ready to form the crusts.  That was the easiest dough forming session I have had to date.  It formed perfectly and didn't give me any issues at all....

I am curious about this particular 72 hour cold ferment.  I am wondering several things about it....

 

1.  Would 5 days make a significant better/worse chage over the 3 day cold ferment?

2. How would this be with a sourdough instead of commercial yeast?
