water or milk in pizza dough?
« on: September 05, 2009, 11:57:02 am »
Just getting things prepared for tomorrow, looked up the pizza dough recipe and noticed you can use either water or milk. I have always used water but because this lot is for visitors, wondered if milk makes it any better.  What do you guys use?

Hello Judy
I always use water - the Portuguese vorwerk recipe is great and makes a lovely soft dough - made with water. If I can give you an advice: make up today still some olive oil with lots of garlic and pizza herbs (oregano, etc.) - blitz it up in the tm and put in marmalade jar and place in cupboard. This garlic oil is great on pizzas, pasta, etc. etc.
I have read somewhere the concern that garlic in oil is not good for one's health but I have made this many times (begfore I read this advice) and still do so as I have never notices any sideeffects.
Regards
Barbara

I hedge my bets Judy and do half and half ;D (low fat milk)  The pizza dough really is great isn't it - cooks evenly and base crispy - i'll never go back to lavish bread bases!
