    can you tell how you made your dough? what are the darker flecks in the dough?

  • ugavet,
    Since you're a fellow UGA grad:[p]Grab your Kitchen-aid mixer, attach dough hook. Rinse out bowl in hot water so it heats up a bit, add 1 1/4 cups 110 deg F water. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt (I like more), 1 pack fast rising active dry yeast, 1 tablespoon olive oil (again I add more but I don't measure, probably more like two tablespoons for me). You can stop here but I add: a whole bunch of garlic powder (no idea how much, just add what you like), ground caynne pepper (careful here), and dried herbs, oregano, basil, etc. (These are the dark flecks you ask about) I supose you could use fresh herbs but I have never tried - Hmm.. a new project! Add a cup of non-bleached non-self-rising bread flour and turn mixer on speed two with the dough hook attached. Continue to slowly add flour until the dough cleans itself from the bowl and starts to ride up the hook, usually about 3 - 3.5 cups depending on humidity of the flour and how much liquid you have in the bowl. (slowly = don't just dump a whole cup in at one time, or you'll look like a cartoon character as an explosion of flour coats your kitchen. You may laugh but your spouse won't. Believe this!) Let the dough ride in the magic tilt-a-whirl for about 3 or 4 minutes (long enough to pee and get another beer), then remove from mixer, fashion into a perfect sphere (or just wad it up like a Tech grad would, doesn't matter) and roll to coat completely in your well-oiled ceramic bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, usually 1- 1.5 hours depending on temp. If you're in a pinch you can put your oven on the lowest setting it has and put the bowl in there. When doubled in size, punch dough down with fingers and proceed as you usually would. Makes great pizzas, calzones, breadsticks, etc.[p]This can be done in a food processor or even by hand if you don't have a mixer with doughhook, it's just more of a pain.
