      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 recipes

Recommended Posts

I grew up in new york so definately miss really good pizza,(actually have one really good place by me called tino's on hwy 7 that reminds me of ny pizza but a little pricey) so have tried about 7 or 8 recipes that I found online, the one below is my favorite, but always searching for a better one

1 package active dry yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup warm water (100 to 110 degrees)

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

2 teaspoons yellow cornmeal

Directions:

Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Stir 1-1/4 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt into yeast mixture to form a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands.

Place dough in a large bowl coated with coil, turning dough to coat. Cover; let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, dough has risen enough.)

Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Roll dough into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on a pizza pan or baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal. Crimp edges of dough with fingers to form a rim.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Drizzle dough with a little olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Place pan on lowest oven rack; bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; top with desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes or until crust and cheese is lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Here is a Pizza Hut clone recipe.2 important things here.

1.Always use bread or bread machine flour.It has way more gluten than all-purpose which allows it to stretch.

2.Knead 8-10 minutes to develope that glutten.Take a small ball of dough and stretch it out thin enough to see light through w/o tearing.This is called the "Bakers Window."

1 1/3 C warm water

1 pkg quick yeast

1 Tbs sugar

1/4 C oil

1 tsp salt

1/3 C milk

4 C bread flour

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.Add remaining ingredients and knead.Place in a Pam sprayed bowl and allow to rise for an hour.This will make enough dough for 2 medium pizzas or 1 very large one.I usually divide in half after rising and put half in the freezer to make the next time.

I used to travel to NY allot and one of the things I miss is the pizza! Thin crust, perfect balance of the sauce, not loaded with cheese. Yes we have some good pizza's here but I have not found one that matches up with the one of 5000 little hole in the wall places in NY. Maybe we just like our pizza here loaded with cheese and meat on a roll.

One other thing......pizza pans make a difference......the best I have found are the aluminum ones with holes in them.Pizza stones don't work unless they are preheated in the 425 gegree oven.But then you need a pizza peel to make it on and slide in onto the stone.

Glad you liked the recipe skunked again. Crust comes out pretty good. I tried to use a pizza stone but didnt have a peel the first time i made it. Couldnt get it off the cookie sheet. Was a huge freaking mess. Fish or golf, if you live out in the western suburbs you have to try tino's. About as close as it gets to ny pizza out here.

Joey Nova's at Cty 19 and Smithtown Rd. is the best I've had in the Western area (Large 2 topper is $18.00), but I'd like to try Tino's too.

What I do to get the pizza on the stones is I spread the dough out on parchment paper on a cutting board then put the toppings on then take stone out of oven and slide parchment paper and pizza on to stone and back in oven. Works pretty slick. The exposed paper burns a bit but it does not effect the pizza.

I use a stone and a peal. The key for me is to put a dusting of corn meal on the peal, then the crust. Next I add my sauce and toppings, then the Za slides off the Peal easily onto the stone. The cornmeal helps the Za slide off like little ball bearings.

    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
