      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Pizza Dough Mix

Recommended Posts

I've use a quick dough recipe that is pretty good.

If I remember correctly its 2 cups of flour, 2/3 or 3/4 cup of warm water, 1 packet of yeast and I think 1/4 tsp of salt.

I'd have to double check those measurements.

Essentially all you do is put the packet of yeast into the warm water until dissolved. Then take that and dump it into a bowl with your flour and salt and mix it all up.

Dump the dough on floured surface and knead it for 5 minutes or until its good and elastic. Then shape it into a ball.

Set it on a plate and cover it with plastic wrapped that you spray with cooking spray. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.

After that short rise time you're good to go. Makes 1 large pizza good for 2 adults.

Craigums, I just use the Great Value ones from Wally World. They're like 44 cents/bag. I use them for my Pizzas on the grill. You do need to let the dough rise for ~5 minutes, personally I let it go a longer as I have other things that need to be done during that time. The yeast must be allowed to work on the flour to make glutin. Just curious, Is there a reason you can't wait for the dough to rise?? Or just that hungry? grin Phred52

You really don't have a choice about letting the dough rise as it's the nature of the beast. You need to let the yeast grow and eat the sugars in the dough giving off carbon dioxide making the dough rise.

Then working the dough aligns the gluten protiens in the flour giving it the stretchy consistency. Pizza dough you work, biscuit dough you don't as you want that fluffy.

I don't mind waiting for 5-15 minutes, I just don't want to let it sit for hours, I wont be starting the recipe until after 7pm and dont want to wait all night to be finished

I use the jiffy mix, around 50 cents. But when you put the powder in the bowl (this works for all crust mixes) add some garlic powerder, italian seasoning and basil to it. Adds a lot of flaver to crust that doesn't have a ton of it.
