Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

If you liked Hertzberg and Francois' Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, you're going to love their new Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day. This follow-up to that word-of-mouth bestseller pampers us with more than 100 easy to make and bake pizza and flatbread recipes. To add to the feast, they offer tasty alternatives with whole grain, spelt, and gluten-free ingredients; and soups, salads, and spreads to fill out the meal. (P.S. Dr. Hertzberg and Mrs. Francois know what they're doing: Their bread books have sold more than half a million copies.)

Publishers Weekly
The tips and techniques section alone makes this book invaluable to anyone attempting to make pizza at home. Every problem you might encounter is discussed in a friendly, you’re-not-stupid-for-asking-this-question! manner. Hertzberg and François start with the basics: “How brown should pizza cheese get?” or “How do you prevent a soggy pizza crust?” and move to the more scientific: “Why do you cut medium-soft cheese into chunks rather than grating or slicing it?” The recipe section is similarly orchestrated. The first recipe, for a classic Margherita pie, is painstakingly broken down into finely detailed directions, with pictures in case you get lost. You’ll actually enjoy reading the directions, as the authors provide reasons for every move: “Do not punch down the dough! With our method, you’re trying to retain as much gas in the dough as possible, and punching it down knocks out gas and will make your pizza and flatbreads dense.” It feels encouraging, not coddling, and soon you’ll be making the delicious recipes, like Turkish spiced lamb flatbread or goat cheese and onion pizzette.

From the Publisher
Praise for Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day

“Soon the bread will be making itself… The crusty, full-flavored loaf that results may be the world’s easiest yeast bread.” —The New York Times

“If man cannot live by bread alone, it may be because Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François didn’t publish their book sooner… [They've] developed a method that makes any home into a mini artisan bake shop… Hertzberg and François’ practical, common-sense method… is, quite simply, genius.” —Robin Mathers Jenkins, Chicago Tribune

“… even people who’ve spent their lives avoiding the kitchen can whip up a loaf of bread in five minutes…” —The Today Show

“… a book that has eliminated that marathon of prep and angst… the aroma’s wonderful, and there’s a slightly sour tang… ooh, that’s dynamite!  This is fabulous…” —Lynne Rossetto Kasper, on The Splendid Table radio show, 12/15/2007

“… whenever we need bread, I just dip into the container, pull out some dough, let it rest a bit and then bake a loaf, rolls, or pizza.  This method is amazingly simple—and creates authentic European-style fresh bread… The cost?  about 40 cents for a one-pound loaf!” —Woman’s Day Magazine

Meet the Author

The authors met in their children’s music class in 2003 and wrote the best-selling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. grew up eating New York pizza and spent years trying to figure out how to make dough that was convenient enough to use for daily pizza, flatbreads, and loaves.  But really, he just wanted to learn to throw pizza dough high into the air.  He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters.

Zoë François is a pastry chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America, but she is a pizzaiola at heart. While writing this book she traveled far and wide to eat every pizza and flatbread she could find.  In addition to tossing pizzas she creates desserts on her pastry blog zoebakes.com.  She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two sons.

The authors answer questions on pizza, flatbread, and all things bread at PizzaIn5.com.

Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day

1

PIZZA AND FLATBREAD ARE THE FASTEST BREADS WE MAKE: STORING THE DOUGH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

By the time we finished our second bread cookbook, we came to a basic truth: our pizzas and flatbreads were the fastest and often the most beloved recipes in our repertoire. Why? Because unlike loaf breads, they require little or no rest time after shaping them. So if you have a batch of our stored dough in the fridge (where it's been developing richer flavor over its storage life), and you've preheated your oven, you can be as little as ten minutes away from piping hot pizza, or even less for fresh pita flatbread. For busy people, there is no quicker dinner—as always, active time is under five minutes a day, because you spread the preparation time for your premixed dough over many pizzas and flatbreads.

We've included soups, dips, and spreads that turn flatbreads or pizzas into a complete and speedy meal. Ingredients will include grains and toppings from around the world, as well as healthier alternatives where possible. So this book can become the basis for entire meals that are perfect for busy households.

New pizzerias are popping up all over the United States, and pizza remains the nation's number one purchased meal. Despite this, there aren't many pizzacookbooks on the market today. And most recipes rely on dough that yields just one precious pie—not an option for most busy people. We have a voracious appetite for pizza, and so do our readers (that's what they told us on our Web site). Making your own pizza is much easier than it looks, and the options for toppings and crust mean that there's a world of variety. As in all our books, the secret to baking it fresh every day is that the dough is on hand, in your refrigerator, all the time. Storing the dough makes all the difference. Since you only mix once, but bake up to eight pizzas or flatbreads over a couple of weeks, you divide the prep time over all the pizzas and flatbreads you make from the batch.

Whether you're an old hand at baking or a novice, our helpful tips will let you perfect your pies. We start with basics in Chapter 2 (Ingredients), Chapter 3 (Equipment), and Chapter 4 (Tips and Techniques). And then you can start baking exquisite pies with our Master Recipe (Chapter 5).

    Its hard to argue with fresh, easy pizza!

    Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day follows the highly popular Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The authors have turned their focus to pizza, making it not only easy for every home cook to obtain the best possible results, but also making it such a quick and painless process that you will be tempted to eat pizza everyday! It has the same format as their previous books with first a master recipe, then many interesting variations. Heavy on detailed instructions, there are just a few color photos to give you an idea of the final product.

    Master Recipe Olive Oil Variation - This is an easy, reliable recipe that has replaced my standard pizza dough recipe. I do love that you can have it just sitting in the fridge waiting to be used. It makes weeknight homemade pizza a cinch.

    The Ultimate Tender Neapolitan Crust - I made this recipe to use up some extra cake flour I had on hand. It definitely changed the texture of the crust though I found it pleasantly chewy rather than tender.

    Sauce from Canned Tomatoes - Easy and delicious. I will make this again and again.

    White Pizza with Spinach -
    This was the big wow recipe of the book for me. Fabulously good pizza with not much effort. This is a pizza I crave, then eat all week once I have the ingredients in the house.

    Individual Breakfast Pizza -
    Fun Sunday breakfast for kids. I made it in muffin tins and it was tasty.

    Its hard to argue with fresh, easy pizza. I can't imagine there are many households out there that don't need a copy of this cookbook!

    not enough new from previous books.

    If you have any of these authors previous books, this books is just another to gather dust on your shelves. I love their techniques and their bread and I am a pizza fiend, so was quite disappointed in this book. Seems just another opportunity for them to take a paid vacation and write about it.

    That said, if you haven't tried Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day - so yourself a big favor and make some, you won't be disappointed!
