HOW TO MANAGE STICKY PIZZA DOUGH….?

Why is knowing the hydration levels in your pizza dough so important? The more water you use in a recipe the higher the hydration level in your pizza dough. The higher the hydration level there is in your pizza dough, the stickier the dough will be. That stickiness does create a challenge if you are learning how to make pizza dough.  Higher hydration levels increases the stickiness level of the dough and it takes a lot of skill to manage it, shape it into a dough ball and then stretch it out on your work surface.  I use a hydration…

PANCETTA PIZZA COOKED BY THE OONI KODA. PIZZA DOUGH SAVED BY THE ROCCBOX

PANCETTA PIZZA COOKED IN THE OONI KODA This week has flown by but I'm so happy I cooked this Pancetta topped pizza in the Ooni Koda gas-fired pizza oven.  It's so tasty!  Next time I'll add some small tomatoes on top to balance the flavours.  The dough I used for this pizza cook was a 24 hour room proofed dough and I think this is the first time in a while I've used it.  My main process has been to refrigerate the dough, then room proof it back.  I think I'll be going back to that way as I feel…

TWO DIFFERENT PIZZA OVENS – TWO DIFFERENT HOME-MADE PIZZAS

HOME-MADE DESSERT PIZZA USING THE ROCCBOX PIZZA OVEN I love the summer especially when the weather comes good and the outside temperature hits at least 20c.  And with Wimbledon and those fresh strawberries at their best, it was time to make my favourite home-made pizza - the dessert pizza using the Roccbox Gas-fired Pizza Oven.  This can take many forms but I mostly make them with custard and some fresh fruit and sometimes a sprinkling of chocolate. This all started when I visited a Bed and Breakfast in Tuscany, Italy and the family prepared the guests a feast of pizza from the…

HOW I MAKE PIZZA DOUGH

HOW I MAKE PIZZA DOUGH It's been a while since I made a vid on making pizza dough and I have updated the recipe for this video.  Although I've been using this recipe for at least 6 months in some form. I will list the recipe and process for how I currently make dough below the video here. I didn't point out in this vid and maybe I should have - that there is no definitive process for making dough.  It's a personal thing and your process will be based on your climate as that affects the yeast fermentation.  Plus, not…

MAKING A HOME-MADE PIZZA IN 90 SECONDS!

PIZZA IN 90 SECONDS! Yesterday I made a pizza in the Ooni Koda Gas-fired Pizza Oven.  The weather wasn't great but the sun popped out for the cook.  I'd been using the Ooni Pro Pizza Oven for the last two weeks as I'd missed cooking with logs but I'd also missed using the Koda.  I made a nice meatball pizza with seasoning and it tasted really great. The Koda managed to heat up quite quickly although I was hanging around for about 7 minutes waiting for the middle of the stone to get up to temperature.  The stone had to…

NEARLY MELTING MY IPHONE FROM THE HEAT OF THE OONI PRO WOOD-FIRED PIZZA OVEN

SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL! I FORGOT HOW HOT THE PIZZA OVEN CAN GET! Hello!  This week I nearly lost my phone to the heat coming out of the Ooni Pro Pizza Oven!  It had been a while since I last used it and getting used to the immense heat that comes out from the front of the Ooni Pro takes some getting used to!  Once you open the door, take a step back because those flames just want to escape right through that front door opening! I couldn't wait to get back to using the Ooni Pro, the wood…
