Doughs!

This will cover a variety of different types of dough, including bread dough and pizza dough.

So what do you need to make a dough? At the most basic level you need a good balance of flour and liquid. As with any baking recipes you want to measure by weight, and not volume. So for bread your base should be 600g of flour and 400g of liquid. This will make a fairly dry dough that is easy to handle. For flour, go with 100g of whole wheat flour, 400g of bread flour, and 100g of AP flour. If you you only have AP flour that will work as well. If you are making pizza dough try to get 00 flour, but again, AP flour will work well too! Anyways, here's a bunch of recipes...

Ingredients:

  • 600g flour
  • 400g liquid (at least 100g EVOO)
  • 1 Tbl salt
  • 1 Tbl dry yeast

Mix in a blender and then turn with a dough hook for 5 minutes or so.

So there's your basic ratios. For a flatbread, add some wheat flour to the mix (100g wheat, with 500g AP or so), for a pita go with all AP flour, for a pizza dough go with 00 flour. This ratio works well for me! Let it rest in the fridge overnight, then warm for 2 hours at room temp and divide into whatever size you desire. Then let rest for another 30 minutes before baking/grilling.
