Pizza Night T-1

This is the first time I’ve tried to make the pizza dough Chef Frank Mayo taught me to make last Sunday. I found the special “Blue Bag” Caputo Tipo 00 flour he uses, but I don’t have my own sour dough levain (yet).  Starting that will have to be a project for next weekend.

Frank Mayo Pizza Dough 1

It’s a very wet, sticky dough.  I had to scrap it out of the stand mixer bowl with my stiffest spatula.  Amazingly, it comes together into the proverbial “smooth and elastic” ball after just a minute or two of light hand kneading.

It looks right and it feels right. I just put it in the fridge to for a long, slow rise.

We’ll find out if it is right tomorrow night.
