Gluten Window

Pretty dramatic, huh? This was a difficult picture to take of myself. The strands in the dough are the gluten strings. If the dough is mixed properly, these gluten bonds hold the dough together when forming the pizza crust (called a windowpane test). If not, it tears and you look like an idiot.


Pizza parade. Is that the name of a band? It should be. This could even be a better one: Sausage, red onion, mozzarella and olive oil. If you’re interested, the dot com name is still available.
