I am trying to get some understanding of when to make "hamotzi" vs. "mezonot" on baked products.
The dough consists of the these ingredients - 5 lbs. flour, 4 eggs, 4 tbs. salt, 4 tbs. sugar, 4 tbs. oil, 3 packets yeast.
If I don't add anything else, and bake this into challah, it's bread - hamotzi.
If I roll out the dough and add poppy seed filling and bake it - it's cake - mezonot.
If I shape it into small twisted pretzels, it's mezonot
- If I flatten the dough, put tomato sauce and cheese on it and make pizza - if I have one slice it's mezonot; if I have two or more, it's hamotzi.
I'm not sure what criteria go into making the distinction. Is it adding filling or sweet ingredients to the dough? Is it the quantity eaten? Some combination of these? Any other criteria?
