How to Make Neapolitan Pizza Dough

Neapolitan pizza dough is low hydration and formulated specifically for use in a wood fire oven. To be a true neapolitan pizza, the dough can only contain 00 pizza flour, water, salt and yeast.

The 00 pizza flour is especially important when making a neapolitan pizza, since the "leapording" or char responsible for the distinct look and flavor of neapolitan pizzas, taste bitter and burnt if any flour besides 00 pizza flour is used.

How to Make a New York Style Pizza Crust

This New York style pizza crust is formulated specifically for use in a home oven. The addition of the olive oil and sugar help to make the dough extensible and easy to brown. This dough can be further enhanced by delaying fermentation in the fridge overnight, either during the primary fermentation or proofing stage. The longer the dough is allowed to proof, the better flavor it will have.
