My father works for a cheese 🧀 plant that makes Mozzarella cheese and they make block mozzarella to make a pizza from the cheese is part of quality control they have to measure of the stretch when it is hot and delicious 😋 to see if it passes to be shipped out to stores.

Can someone answer me why Nicole can't eat pizza?
Oliver Linder
Sad the last test went how it went. For my likings and for using the pizza stone the best the dough must be around 3 mm thin and the buffalo morzarella needs to be pressed out before you put it on the pizza. mostly you are not even baking the fresh morzarella you will put it on right after baking and use the resonating heat of the Pizza to let it melt. would have probably been a different outcome. But still a good series in testing these myth.

When cooking with a pizza stone you can actually prep it on a non stick pan and slide it off onto the stone. I’ve seen my dad make pizza on multiple occasions, he cooks it on the stone and always preps it on a nonstick pan. Love the show :)

Gosh Americans do really have a problem with cheese. First : yes too much cheese exists, it becomes disgusting when you put too much second : I always eat pizzas with fresh mozza, and I never get a soggy pizza so must be a problem on the preparation (maybe not enough eat from the oven?) Third : the point of using fresh mozza instead of "mozzarella" block is because a good pizza is supposed to have creamyness which you could never get with a low moisture mozza But when we see that most americans prefere putting "american cheese" on burgers rather than a good cheddar, I think it's a lost cause

So... why do we assume all these have independent influence on the final pizza? Come on Mythical Kitchen, make all the combinations for a real comparison. Taking the best of each variable independently and then combining them does not guarantee the best pizza.

um a perforated pizza pan is the way to go, or an upside down sheet pan works well too. you dont always need a pizza stone plus it takes a long time for it to heat up. So if you arent making bread or anything else but pizza a pizza stone is a waste of space and money sorry

I don't watch these videos super often, so sorry if this is a known thing, but is the editor manipulating Josh's voice? Sometimes it sounds like he inhaled helium, like 21:40 but he doesn't always sound like that. And it just happens sporadically through the video, and I'm so confused.

Here’s a suggestion for a future episode: grilled cheese. What type of cheese? What type of bread? Shredded cheese or sliced? Butter or Mayo on the outside? What to cook it on?

Fun fact: in Italy if you serve a pizza in a restaurant with *not* fresh mozzarella on top, you get insulted and you lose a customer. If your pizza is wet, you did it wrong and it's not the mozzarella's fault. JOSH. 'MMURICA.

I was chasing perfect pizza recipe for long years. Tried different stones (from light, 1cm thick to 4cm, 8kg monster) and I ended up baking my best pizza ever in the cast iron pan.... Rules which I follow (for neapolitan style pizza): - use only italian SOFT wheat flour. Type "00". "W" index around 280-300. You can easily buy such flour online. - don't knead your dough too much! Only to the point when ingredients mix together. Fermentation does the job for you. Kneading for too long makes the dough tough. - use just a tiiiiiny tiiiny pinch of yeast. I'm using around 1-2g of fresh yeast for 700-800g of flour. That's enough. - let it ferment for at least 24h in a fridge and leave it in the room temperature for at least 3-4h before baking. (My extreme experiment was to ferment a dough for over a week, still perfectly fine, but I didn't see much of an improvement in comparison with 24h one) - Find fresh, sweet tomatoes and do the sauce by yourself. Canned tomatoes (I used the best italian san marzano tomatoes I could find) are always way way more acidic than the fresh ones. - Put cast iron pan to the very top rack. Take your oven to the absolute max on the grill setting (mine heats up to the 280'C) and leave the pan for at least 20-25mins to get as hot as possible - Bake your pizza for 2-3min observing constantly, every 10-15seconds can make a difference between perfectly baked and totally burnt one ;D Follow that steps and you'll make yourself one of the best pizzas you ever had. Guaranteed.

I don't understand why this wasn't blind? Knowing something went into the blender (Gonna develop a lot more gluten), you're going to be looking for that before you even tried it..

Pizza steel is superior, but if you preheat your cast iron in the oven, it simulates it pretty well. I own a 15" C.I. pan primarily for this reason.

@ Mythical Kitchen When you make cast iron pizza, you need a little oil in the pan if you want a nice crispy crust; also why would use flour instead of corn meal on the paddle, it does the same job, and tastes better...... And, yeast doughs get better, the longer you let them rise, but if you let it sit too long then you get sourdough pizza instead of traditional pizza. Honestly it also comes down to personal preferences... Nice job though.

Tony chachere's is very good seasoning but the salt is just way too strong. It's basically 96 percent salt. They need a version that has 25 percent of the salt so I can actually season my food with it, instead of using it for my salt.

Cast can be a good option; drop some oil in your cast so it fries the crust instead of steaming it. Stone's still more awesome, though.

I have a trick for Josh to fix the cast iron steaming issue. Put the cast iron in upside down and heat the oven then put pizza on the cast iron. Learned that in scouts over 25 years ago. You see pizza stones and campfires don't get along so we turned our cast irons into metal pizza stones. Also saves buying a pizza stone if you already have like a 12", 15"" pan or cast iron griddle.

Lmao she was not listening and kept kneading when he said to just roll it into a ball, the processor already did all the work. Probably why the crust was tough, dont over work the dough
