I love talking technology, new equipment, and Canon lenses.

comment What is the best flour to use for pizza dough?
The main issue I have with this question is that there simply is no best flour for all types of pizza. It depends on the specific type of pizza you are trying to make. For example Neapolitan pizza vs Chicago Deep Dish. It also depends on the oven you are using.

comment How can I produce a more soggy Neapolitan pizza crust?
Joe - I've been using the skillet/broiler method for about a year and just recently switched to the baking steel. So I am not discounting it without trying. Overall the baking steel is far superior to produce this style of pizza so far for me. The only overall characteristic I'm missing is the soggy center. The skillet had numerous other issues for me.

Great answer thank you. Yes I have let it both cold ferment in the refrigerator for 3 days and also a different time on the counter for 1 day. This is why the recipe can get away with no kneading apparently. I like the ideas of a thicker crust in the center and also experimenting with 00 flour, both things I haven't yet tried with this recipe. I'll update after some attempts. Thanks!

comment How can I produce a more soggy Neapolitan pizza crust?
So you are suggesting the skillet method over the baking steel to gain a soft/soggy center to my crust? And the reasoning is because of the higher heat? My understanding is that the baking steel is even better than the cast iron at retaining heat and should perform even better(and it does in my tests). So I'm not sure what exactly you are proposing here that I'm not already doing.

I've updated my am question to address the "why?". Thank you for the answer, although I'm not convinced that your answer is accurate as all of the best Neapolitan pizza I've ever had has this characteristic but is also cooked at 900 deg F too.

comment Neapolitan Pizza in a regular gas oven
I'll have to try the sugar tip. I've done everything that you suggested(steel, 550 long preheat, long rise, plus using the broiler). But I can't get to 90 seconds, I'm right at 120 seconds.

Correct, pressing coffee, then adding milk that was frothed separately.

comment What is the optimal temperature for making coffee, specifically in an AeroPress?
I tried this. With 155° F milk, my latte is quite cool! Too cold in fact. I guess I'm too picky. But if I move above 155, then I risk over-cooking the milk based on your recommendations. What should I do?

@SAJ14SAJ - Sorry my terminology may be incorrect. All I know is that I am using an AeroPress to do this. See the links in my question for more information.
