I have ricotta whey left over and wondered (after the fact) about substituting it for water in a pizza dough recipe - Any reason why it wouldn't work? If it's a terrible idea, I still have time to make the dough recipe again.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

I don't think it's a terrible idea at all. In fact, it sounds pretty interesting. It's all a science experiment, right? My guess is that is may tenderize your dough some. Do it, and let us know if it makes a difference in the texture of your dough.
Thanks boulangere! The dough turned out to be very good. It was a little tougher to knead and shape into pizza. We had to seriously roll it (we build our pizzas outside on a table because it is so messy to make 6-8 pizzas), but the dough rolled out beautifully after some hard coaxing. It was thin, bubbly and very tasty, with a little more character than dough w/ water. I used bread flour for the pizza dough - just fyi.
