Pizza Dough - Salty

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I've made pizza dough every week for the past five years. I make it in a bread machine. The last two weeks, the dough has been very salty. I do not put any salt in the dough.. I tried again this week with a new batch of flour. Same problem. What could be going on? Could the yeast be bad or not working properly, and causing a salty taste?

Gremlins. You have kitchen gremlins. 

 

They once kept switching the salt and sugar and the wine and vinegar.

 

That was just mean.

IDK - gremlins is a better answer than I would have proposed.

 

But pizza dough with out salt could be very bland.  I (or my kitchen gremlins) always put some salt into the dough.

 

If you don't mind me asking a personal question... but are you taking any medications that may be altering your taste buds?  That happened to a friend of mine once.

Thanks. The pizza dough without salt is just fine once you get used to it - plenty of salt on top with cheese and bacon topping. No medications, no gremlins, no salt in the sugar bowl. Just salty dough that everyone can taste.

You might have got a bag of self rising flour instead of your regular flour?

Are you sure you are using sugar and not salt? 

 

Also, yes, for the love of God put at least SOME salt in your bread. Un--salted bread is disgusting.

This.
You can try to taste test your current bag of flour but will prob not taste it.
Go pick up a fresh bag of AP and see if that helps.
