Oh my dough! Pizza success

I can't remember the last time I made pizza on the egg but today was a huge success. We forgot to buy sauce so we used taco sauce instead.

1000 grams 00 flour
650 grams water
10 grams of salt
1 pack yeast (8 grams)

Proofed the yeast in the water heated @ 100F for 10 minutes. Mixed everything in the kitchen aid for 2 minutes. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Mixed again for 5 minutes and reduced speed for 2 more minutes. Placed the dough in an oiled bowl covered with a damp dish towel in the oven @ proof setting.

Split the dough in half.

    What temp did you cook at and what set up did you use? I only wish for successes like that.

    @Wolfpack The taco sauce was great, we will do it again for sure!

    @yvrbased The temp was between 650-700 while the plate setter and the stone were in the egg and well over 900F before adding the plate setter. The stone was allowed to heat for 45-60 minutes.

    Plate setter legs up in pswoo2 with stone on woo extender.

    Here's a picture of my setup:

    Looks beautiful!  Does your oven actually have a setting to let the dough rise?  What temp does it keep? 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    @Botch The resting period is a common technique called autolyse.

    @SmokeyPitt Yes, my oven has a setting to proof bread. I am not sure what the temperature setting is but it is low. Probably arround 25C

    How many / what size pizzas did that make?  650g is a bit more than 2 cups of water, which by my recipe would make a little more than 2 16' pies.

    @njl I usually make 3-4 pies with this recipe. Today, I used more dough and only made 2 pies. Today's pies were much thicker than the ones I usually make. Also, I just realized that I used half the salt that I usually add and it was still good.

    That's a nice feature to have.  My oven has a warming drawer I might try next time I make dough if I can get it around the correct temp.

    We use this to proof our dough. Perfect humidity and temp control. http://www.amazon.com/Folding-Bread-Proofer-Yogurt-Maker/dp/B005FCZMU6/ We keep our house pretty cool year round and this does the trick.

    @Griffin The dough was @ proof setting in the oven for about 2 hours

    @SmokeyPitt Be careful with the warming drawer. I have a warm setting on my oven as well and it is much more warmer than the proof setting.

    Thanks for the tip...I'll use my maverick to see just how warm it is.

    Very Nice! Where did you get the Caputo? Can't find it anywhere. I can get 00 flour, just not that brand.

    2 days after making the dough, we used what was leftover to do calzones.
