Re: New York vs. Chicago Style Pizza

I've had people tell me water effects the dough a lot. Probably one reason Chicago pizza is so hard to duplicate elsewhere.

    There are companies who sell NY water to people out of state. No idea how such a small amount of a substance could change everything so much.

    The water thing never really sold me. I have studies 4 semesters of Chemistry and am working towards a degree in Civil/Enviornmental Engineering and nothing has ever convinced me that water has anyone to do with the quality of pizza.

    That being said, I won't pretend to be an expert on it. If someone can show me an academic journal article that says otherwise I will gladly change my view. But in my general knowledge of the subject, I have to conclude that dihydrogen monoxide has nothing to do with the outcome of pizza.

    i'm sure very few, if any, pizzerias use DI water. there is more than just H2O in tap water, and pretty much every city has different levels of chemical additives, not to mention many cities have century+ old pipes which leach undesired "additives" into the water. i'm no expert either, but my ChE studies lead me to believe that higher fluoride or chlorine content could easily change the taste or consistency of the dough.

    For NY style pizza you're talking 25-35% hydration. Now in that percentage you really think the slight differences in chemicals measured in ppm is making a difference in a 50lb batch of dough?

    uh, yes. a slight change in chemicals can change everything. do it wrong and you have a caesar salad on your hands

    Re: New York vs. Chicago Style Pizza

    when i was down in Fl a couple years ago I was surprised to see Yuengling Lager. Its a brewery in Pa and they only distribute to a few states. In Fl it tasted very different. not bad, but not the same. My friend's dad is a brewer there and he told me he's heard that before, its a difference in the water. i know theres a higher % of water in beer than in pizza, but just saying

    Beer is a much higher percentage water than pizza. Not to mention I would imagine beer's chemistry is a lot more delicate than dough.

    cruscott, you're honestly saying that different levels of various chemicals won't have an effect on the taste of whatever those chemicals are in??

    I'm saying the levels of those chemicals with respect to pizza is so small the effects will be negligible.

    Yeah I believe it is Tin (II) fluoride that is added in (or is that what is in tooth paste..I don't remember). Either way, I am not sure the percent composition of what ever fluoride is added would make major differences. Also, if it does, it wouldn't make regional differences. The water in NYC is not the same as the water in NJ and Conneticut who have the same reputation of amazing pizza.

    Interesting subject though. Would love to know if any research has been done on it.

    hydrogen sulfide is detectable by scent at 2 ppm and by taste at 5 ppm. themoreyouknow.jpg

    obviously the water in Chicago is better because the pizza is better

    So I went to: http://via313.com/ today to try Detroit Style

    One of the best pizza experiences I have ever had. I am more of a NY Style guy, and Detroit Style is probably a little bit closer to Chicago style, but so good. I am usually a thin crust guy, and the crust was probably the best crust I ever had.

    I'm doing some reading on it now, a few unscientific articles and whatnot. I have to say, I'd be delighted if the mythbusters did this. It's really right in their wheelhouse.

    Not much indoor seating anywhere on Rainey. It's all small converted houses, so most seating is in the "backyard". And most of the food at the bars on Rainey comes off food trucks. Pretty sure 313 at Craft Pride is a truck. I've only been there once, and I had been drinking. Didn't try to the pizza, but have been meaning to go back and do so.
