    This is where google fails me every time. I understand that erable translates to maple but in English maple doesn't mean anything, it is a name we have given to a specific tree. It's the difference between naming your child Roger, and naming them Fighter or Warrior. What does "erable" really mean in French?

    Something that Alex didn't immediately mention in his video that I thought I'd highlight is the nature of the flour that he used!
    He's using a Type "00" flour, one that's extremely light in comparison to all-purpose or plain bread flour. It produces a much lighter crumb on the inside of the pizza, and allows for a crispier, almost cracker-thin crunchy crust on the outside. It can also produce crusts that can handle temperatures in excess of 700 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Happy cooking!!

    Here is what I don't understand about multi-day proofing. After creating the initial dough, how long should it proof/rise at room temperature, before placing it in the refrigerator? And after placing it in the refrigerator, should you mess with at all?

    • D
      D Month ago

      Some people will bulk proof at room temp for an hour or two before placing in the fridge, but I don't. I might go 5-10 minutes at the most at room temp, but usually I put it in the fridge as soon as I'm done dividing, balling, and placing in containers. So, my process is:
      1) Mix flour, water, yeast and sugar until no dry flour remains (I use a food processor and wait until a dough ball forms on top of the blade and then go ~10 more seconds).
      2) Autolyse (let dough rest covered) for ~15 min
      3) Add salt and olive oil and knead (about 45-60 sec in the food processor)
      4) Turn out dough to lightly floured work surface and manually knead just a few times.
      5) Divide and ball dough.
      6) Place in containers with few drops of olive oil being sure to coat top surface of dough ball. Using a round container makes it easier to shape a round pizza crust later.
      7) Place in fridge for 2-4 days (no need mess with it at all during this time)
      8) Remove from refrigerator 60-90 minutes prior to desired first baking time to bring dough to room temp (sometimes less if in hot ambient). If making a bunch of pies, maybe only take out half of the dough balls to avoid over-proofing on the bench
      9) Carefully remove dough from container and flour top and bottom lightly (top of dough ball should remain the top of your formed crust).
      10) Shape/top your pies and bake.
      11) Enjoy.

    I think I finally nailed the dough!!! Something happened and I realized I didn't measure the water to 600gr so it was a little more but the kitchen machine was already spinning. I looked at the dough and though why not, let's see what happens. Yes, I'm nowhere near pro and more chef than baker, how could you tell? The dough came out very soft and almost too sticky but I decided to go with it. I put it in the fridge overnight and the following day, happen to be yesterday, I made the first pizza. The most wonderfully stretchy elastic soft supple dough I've ever seen in my life!!! It wad also perfect for lifting up on your folded fingers and stretch it in the air. It's like there is no table for the dough to get stuck on and it stretches more evenly. The pizza came out nothing short of spectacular, just like in a cooking show, crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Now I feel I'm there. I know how I want my pizzas to be! So ... as moist dough as possible, rise overnight in fridge, stretch over your hands and bake on a pizza stone ... I might want try a pizza steel some day, but I'm not sure how much difference it would be at this point! I'm just exited to make much better pizzas than what I can buy at any pizzeria around here! :D

    My favorite pizza would have to be this:
    A nice tradionally thin pizza dough crust covered in creme fraise. I prefer mine a bit more savory so I like Emmentaler instead of mozzarella. For toppings I like red onion, paprika (bell pepper), jalapenos, pepperoni, bacon. Finally sprinkle powered garlic on top and hit the oven. That is ABSOLUTELY divine!

    man, there is a chorizo called CHORIZO DE VELA, I use it to pizza and for everything. Ibérico better than normal, the pigs only eat acorn(bellota), its fat is oleic acid, the flavour is delicious and the difference of price worth it. Any spanish food shop in Paris will know it.

    Well, delivered pizza for us at home is usually some sort of american style - i.e. more or less thick and quite a lot of topping. The best combo we know with that style of pizza is salami, sugar corn and hollandaise sauce. With more traditional (italian) style takeout I usually get margherita or just salami. A+!
