The Coldhitz Vlog

Hello, and welcome to "The Coldhitz Vlog" . My name is Larry , and I am the host of , and the man behind , "Pie In The Sky " , and "The Pie Vlog ". These are the two shows I use to teach the world how easy , and rewarding it is to bake their very own fresh pizzas. The two shows compliment each other , as "Pie In The Sky" is an instructional show , and "The Pie Vlog " serves as the question and answer aspect of the two shows. They are both featured on this Vlog ,which will be my main broadcast outlet , and on my Youtube channel , viewable at They are the first shows in what will become a full broadcast venue , centering on lifestyle and entertainment .

I chose to start with the subject I am most knowlegable of , and passionate My journey , in pursuite of the pie , started in High School. One day , in my Food Science and Nutriton class , my teacher asked us each to select one food we could never imagine being without. My father had been the only other person I ever saw make his own pizzas , so I grew up on fresh pizza , and already had the inside track on anyone that came out with the same answer. So , that's where I started , and after working in the restaurant biz , from waiter to delivery driver and manager , I've done it all. It's been a steady , and purposeful , journey. One that has taken me from , my home town of Dallas , to L.A. in search of the best pizzas , as I pursued a living as an actor.

Now , I'm out to help save the world , one delicious pizza at a time. With my skills as an actor , and my passion as a Pizzaiolo , I want to carve out my own niche in the world. The best way to start off , I believe , is by helping others , and greatness will follow my path. I will answer any pizza related question and welcome each of my viewers to send them in to the comments section , on "The Coldhitz Channel" at, or to post a question to my video recorder , from your webcame , on this Vlog , or at . You can also recod a video message , on your cellphone , 30 seconds maximum , and send it to text to . AT&T , Sprint , and Verizon wireless seem to have the best data speeds , and at this time T-Mobile is lagging behind.
Thank you for choosing to spend your viewing time with me , and soon your loved ones will be asking you to make pizza tonite.

The Dough You Can Count On

Today , I wanna share with all of you , the dough recipe I've been using for the past ten years or so. This is a simple , traditional neopoloitan recipe that has served millions of smiling faces over the years , and continues to add fans with each pie. There are only five ingredients , yet the ways you may choose to personalize it are as varied and complex as any creation you've ever come across. We'll be covering the most basic recipe , and as your skills develope , you will become familiar , and comfortable enough , with the dough to start taking it in so many wonderful and exciting directions , you'll never have to worry about having the same pie twice. And , with that ... here you are.

1) 3 cups organic , unbleached All Purpose flour

2) 1 cup filtered water ( 102* F. )

3) 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4) 1 tsp. sea salt ( finely ground )

5) 1 packet of Active Dry Yeast

Putting It All Together

Wheather you're just starting out , or are a seasoned kitchen warrior , you should always have a clear work area and plan out each step in your preperation. This will aide in the smooth flow of your work and give you the concentration and patience you need to put together our world class pizza pies , or any dish beyond microwave mac ~n~ cheese. The first step is to assemble and combine your dry ingredients. The salt , flour ( unpacked and level ) and a large mixing bowl are needed for this. Pour 'em in and get ready to measure out your one cup of water for the yeast. This is as simple as measuring out the water , at eye level , and popping it in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Now , use a thermometer to check the temperature. Always allow the thermometer to do it's thing and go as high as it's gonna measure. 102* ? Great now we can add our yeast and stir it in as stated on the back of the packet , and let it stand for ten minutes.

Once your yeast is ready , go ahead and slowly pour it into the dry ingredient and then measure out , again at eye level , 1/4 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil , and pour it in , too.... slowly. That's it ... your ingredients are redy to mix into what will become your finest creation yet. It's time to mix the igredients and knead the dough. For complete procedure , and detailed comparison of hand kneading versus using a stand mixer , please see "Pie In The Sky" and "The Pie Vlog " .
