Today marks an important day in your life, for i am making cast iron pan pizza for first time ever. This is a no-knead recipe.

>400g bread flour
>10g (((kosher))) salt
>4g active dry yeast (activated)
>275g water (filtered)
>2 tsp olive oil

I decided to start this story late. We have already undergone 16hrs of rise at 65f on kitchen counter.

HARD MODE: my kitchen scale is broken, so measurements are mad max style, volume.

We are allowing another hour or so of rise because of cooler ambient temp. This noknead looks pretty good so far.

Wow, i wish i could share with you guys. It is no joke super good. Highly recommended recipe.

I think the cast iron would be essential here, though a pie pan could work. The crust with the cast iron was right on point, though i did use about 2 minutes on stovetop, high heat to ensure nice bottom.

Im so happy /ck/!

I've been trying to up my baking skills past buttermilk biscuits.

Anyone who cooks and has a iron should give this a try. If i got it first try, so can anon. Surely to use high quality ingredients, dont skimp on anything.

Great thread, OP. Looks fucking delicious.

I've been making a ton of biscuits myself lately.

2.5 C White Lily flour
1 stick butter, frozen
1 C buttermilk

Throughout the years I've made dozens of batches of a specific chocolate chip cookie. I spent a while trying to find the best recipe that was soft, thick, and had a good ratio of chips. Did lots of reading too, and you'll notice that many cookie recipes call for refrigerating dough so the fat doesn't melt too quickly. Well, I go a step further and FREEZE the dough after forming the cookies, and bake directly from frozen. This way the cookies will be the perfect shape and thickness before the fat has a chance to melt. I will never again bake a homemade chocolate chip cookie that isn't from frozen dough. The result is just too perfect to pass up.

Well, long story short, I'd also been experimenting with biscuits. I got to thinking about all the recipes that call for cold buttermilk, cold flour, shit, even cold flour in a cold bowl. Well, that's really no different than the aforementioned chocolate chip cookie method, right? So I started cutting the mixed biscuit dough as normal, but freezing it rock solid. It turned out just about how you'd expect: perfect.

That is all to says that baking is a lot about technique rather than ingredients. Wew.

I followed a new age popular technique of no-kneading, which really created long strong gluten webbing like i haven't seen.



I used both of these pages simultaneously. I believe its super important to let the bread rise in a 65-75f area for as long as possible (16hrs for me before panning). Getting as close as possible to the ingredient weight is always good. Don't be afraid to use extra yeast.

More stats for my experience:
Electric range
Max out temperature 500+
Well seasoned, greased cast iron
Well sealed and round bowls for leavening dough (rise)
Tea towel over pan while doing final pan rise, i used pillowcase because thats what i had
If the dough is on trach and airy, dont be scared to use extra sauce and toppings. The bread is stronk.

I like your style. Biscuits just don't come out the same without keeping it cold before baking. You make me want to do some cookies for desert!

My biscuits:

All purpose 20ish ou
Buttermilk 1cup
6tbsp butter cold
1/4tsp b. Soda
3tsp b. Powder
1tsp kosher salt
2tsp light brown sugar

So important to bake in good pan, nice and tight and about 2inch wide x 1inch tall, imo. 400f 15ish min.

Most important thing you said is that technique and experience really is what makes good dishes.

I keep thinking of important parts.

A silicone spatula went a long long way throughout this recipe, especially turning it out of pan onto cutting surface and very carefully releasing leavened dough after initial rise.

Don't ever abuse the dough! It needs a gentle and caring senpai!

I want more pizza, so lucky me! We have another piece of dough in the fridge since we split it way earlier!

>> No.9937742

Got me thinking about the cold.

For this pizza, i made sure to leave my toppings and sauce on counter to warm to room temp before baking. This may have helped some.
