Taggato: neapolitan pizza in gas fired oven
Baked for 50 seconds or less in the Pizza Party at 500F, this will make the softest, tenderest, melt-in-your-mouth pizza you can imagine.
1600g flour (+/- depending on the thirst of the flour)
1g instant yeast
I use simple unmalted all-purpose flour. You do not necessarily need to flour though it does not need to be unmalted (no malted barley or enzymes listed in the ingredients). Caputo Pizzeria or other similar flour will be substitute directly.
Add to the mixer, dissolve in the salt, then add the flour and mix on the slow speed for 3-5 minutes until it is mixed, but it does not need to look very smooth. Take a dough out of the bowl and let the dough rest for about 15 minutes, then knead by hand to dozen or so until you start to get tight. It should now be generally smooth. Place dough in a lightly oiled plastic container or food bag and ferment for 12 hours at 16-17C *.
After 12 hours, ball the dough tightly and ferment for an additional 12 hours at 16-17C. I ferment the balls in wood boxes that you absorb a tiny bit of moisture from the bottom of the dough balls.
My typical bake times are 45-50 seconds at 500C on the Saputo deck.
* This recipe requires maintaining fairly precise temperature control for 24 hours which can be difficult without an electric cooler – something like a wine cooler. I think 16-17C produces the best results in both flavor and texture, but the yeast can be adapted to other fermentation temperatures with this table: https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=26831.msg511590#msg511590
Great pizzas Craig!

Do you have an electric cooler than you recommend? I just picked up a fairly nice wine fridge from Lowes with an adjustable thermostat. Seems to hold temp fairly well but I have seen variation as much as 3 degrees F. Is that acceptable? Thanks!
3F swings should be no problem. That’s a bit better than I get. Here is how I do it: https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,18509.msg179991.html#msg179991
Also, if you haven’t seen it, this chart can help you find a starting point to tune your yeast quantity to whatever fermentation time/temperature combination you need: https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=26831.msg511590#msg511590
At what point do you add the IDY? Room temp water ok? Thanks Craig!
Yes, water straight from the tap. I dissolve the salt into the water, then the yeast, then add the flour.
Awesome. Thanks for all the help!
