Pizza Bases

Marco:
Curious no one has cobbled together an electrically heated steel/stone, a convection oven can probably match the top heat input of a stone oven at significantly lower temperatures, just need to match the bottom then.

That said, I prefer Detroit pizza which needs nothing much special base or oven wise ... shame about the calories.

If you look at the G3 Ferrari type oven there isn't very much to it.

A heating element (maybe 1200W) at the bottom, under the pizza stone, and same heating element on top. Heat control is optional, mine is sort of stopping at 400°C - that is good enough for a ~3 Minute pizza. I don't have that brand but I am telling you this type oven makes REALLY good pizza.

Update:

The  1/4 cup potato flakes + 4x their weight in water added to dough made the dough a bit too wet and harder to roll.

It also expanded lots more than usual making a thicker base.  Some of that is just due to being a wet dough.
But i think next time i will cut the added water for potato flakes down to 2x weight.
Might also make a smaller amount of dough and roll it a bit thinner.

But i do think it made the base softer. which is what it's supposed to do.

Would that work, make balls instead and now you've got potato rolls?

It's more bready than potatoy at the quantity i used.
The potato flakes just gives it a bit more softness. They're also often used in bread loafs to make them softer.
