does anyone use warm water for pizza dough?
« on: March 06, 2011, 09:33:03 pm »
Hi All,

In the EDC book, the basic pizza dough doesnt use warm liquid (ie water or milk).
I made two batches llast night, both were good, i used warm liquid though, one with water which rose quiet well, the other with milk which didnt rise as much but once cooked was soooo much softer.
Anyways just a though as for any other bread/dough its all warm in the EDC book. weird?

I sometimes use a warm liquid for my dough depending on how quickly I want it to rise.  I generally prefer a slow rise as this leads to a tastier bread but if I'm in a hurry I'll use a warm liquid to speed up the process.

I have made this dough a lot and I'm pretty sure I always use cold water (well, room temp anyway).  We like our pizza crusts fairly thin so rising isn't as important for us.  I always use warm water when making bread though.

Same as Meagan.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I use warm in winter and tap temperature in summer.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
