A Stir The Pots Post

Pizza with morels

by | Jul 13, 2011 | Pizza


Yes, another pizza. Sure, it's tedious and always a struggle to whip up some inovative topping, but someone has got to do it. Let it be me!

I've been working out how to mix, retard and work out a hybrid pizza dough with various hydrations. The pizzas below were my best so far, leaving and airy dough, crisp and chewy.

100% AP flour

65% Water

21% levain

2% salt

Trace amount of yeast is ok, if your levain or old dough is a bit weak and needs a boost!

Bulk ferment 4 hours, ball to size you like your pizza, mine 200-250g. Retard overnight, here I sometimes remove my dough and let sit 30 minutes to warm up, then form, top and bake.


It's closest to a Napoletano style, which I like best. I am a crust man, but not a fat dough. I like edges puffy, slightly brusciato,(burnt or charred), with a thin dough between that holds all the topping. Not to heavy either, just enough to cover but not weigh down either.



Sure a margherita with basil, pommodori, and mozz is king…but use your imagination.

    Wonderful, you are an artist! I love my crust just as you describe, thin crust, bubbly edges, chewy, some charring. Pizza….
