Default I need a (Neopolitan-style) pizza crust recipe.

I just ordered a gas-fired pizza oven, which should be here in a few days. Supposed to get to 900+ degrees.
Anybody have a good recipe for a Neopolitan-style pizza crust?
I know I can get one online, but I thought I would reach out to THT to see if anybody has one they like and are willing to share.
I'm also open to general suggestions in terms using a pizza oven.
I've been eyeing these things up for a while and am pretty excited to give it a try.

This is the one I use. There is a recipe for the whole bag on the flour.

Good luck with it

We've tried a bunch, and this one is right up there. Doubly so because it's easy and you can do it in the afternoon.

Only ones that I have had that are better were cold fermented.

Roccbox. A buddy has one, and it is pretty great. Only real downside is you can't make pizzas bigger than 12", but with 90 second cook times, everybody can have their own pizza anyway.
It's supposed to be here tomorrow, and I'll try and post a full review when I have had a chance to use it a bit.

Neapolitan pizza dough has 4 ingredients, no more, no less.
If it's not these 4, you're doing it wrong. If you see ones that have oil or sugar....run.
- water
- yeast
- salt
- flour

I have spent many years perfecting this style dough...I can give you a starting point but I'm not posting it in this thread. PM me and I'll get you started on the right path.
Caputo 00 is a great flour, as is King Arthur bread flour...the former being in true Neapolitan style. You could honestly go down the rabbit hole on flours alone.

The only oil I use is to wipe down my containers I store the dough for the cold rise.

I'll never understand how some people can be secretive about a recipe, especially something like dough. take the recipe to your death that will show them

You do realize no single cook book in the world actually has exact recipes, right? Nobody who works hundreds of hours on something puts it out there. Always leave out one ingredient, one measurement a bit light/heavy. Just the way it works.

I call bullshit on that. I'm sure it happens but not all the time. I've never read a cook book in my life so I dont really care. If I'm looking for something new to make I'll browse the web to get an idea on flavors to used and make my own recipe based of several I liked. I'm sure you mix flour water yeast and salt so good the gods float down to have a slice.

btw I share my fishing spots too so I guess I'm a different breed then the hull truth

I never said I wouldn’t share. I said I’m not posting it.
its only 4 ingredients but one of the best things I learned, from years of tinkering, is the process matters far more than the ingredients. I can make a great dough from ap flour because of the process alone.

I can give somone exact coordinates to fish on that I can almost guarantee holds fish. Or I can teach you what to look for on a chart, how to use your electronics, and what to look for on your sonar. Maybe you’ll take that knowledge and find your own spots, that far exceed anything I knew about.

The night before make a poolish...

Mix
500 grams of water (95 degrees)
500 grams of flour (caputo 00 pizzeria)
0.4 grams of yeast

Cover and let sit overnight. The next morning, the poolish should be bubbly and increased 2-3 times in volume

Mix
20 grams of fine sea salt with 125 grams of water (105 degrees)
500 grams of flour (caputo 00 pizzeria)
Poolish

Mix until ingredients come together
Perform 4 stretch and folds within the first hour. (Google this process)
Shape into a ball, cover, and let bulk ferment until doubled
Divide into 250 gram balls (for a 12” pizza) and shape then place in lightly oiled containers or bags
Let rest for 3 hours, or for a more developed flavor, refrigerate overnight. Remove balls from the refrigerator 2 hours before making pizza

I built a wood fired oven about 15 years ago and make pizza almost every weekend. I’ve tried many recipes and the only one I prefer over this uses a sourdough starter instead of commercial yeast.

The ingredients for great pizza is simple. The workflow and technique for mixing and shaping the dough takes a lot of practice.

Regarding the flour, if you use regular malted flour at true Neapolitan temperatures (900 degrees), chances are the dough will burn before the toppings are cooked properly. You really need Caputo 00 or a similar unmalted flour to cook at these high temperatures. Once you get the process down, you’re rewarded with a pizza that melts in your mouth.

I only use a maximum of 3 ingredients, including the cheese. This style dough is too delicate to support any more then that.

I am no expert, this is not the correct way..but did have a pizza restaurant 1985 for a short time and still learning for home use. I still make dough...love to make pizza or anything Italian..actually made some last night.

I make it all in my Kitchen Aid Pro 600. No mess and if done correctly no mess in the bowl.

I start w 3 cups of 00 Cuputo flour...blue bag...drop in the bowl.
I grab some warm tap water..3/4-1 cup...preferable 105-110 degrees and drop in a bag of yeast...mix for a minute or so until frothy. let sit for 5 - 10 min. on the side
add 2 teaspoons of sugar to flour mix and start on #2 mix
I add in yeast solution and keep mixing
add sea salt to the mixture and add up to 1 more cup of flour slowly and water according.
The bowl should come clean...nothing on the sides after about 4 min of mixing. Dough should feel like a soft Booby..lol
I then cover w cheese cloth for about 3-4 hours.

It should yield about 42 oz or 3 14 oz dough balls for what I am doing tonight. Large 16-18" thin and crispy with a slight flop
I weigh each one roll them and put on a pan drizzled w EVO...and cover

The gran kids love them...they even help me...We sometimes make breakfast pizzas..or if I smoke some pulled pork i will make a tangy white sauce w vinegar and different cheese and stuff like pepperchinis..
enjoy and have fun...make some memories

I apologize for the big pics
