Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day
1PIZZA AND FLATBREAD ARE THE FASTEST BREADS WE MAKE: STORING THE DOUGH MAKES THE DIFFERENCEBy 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).Photography copyright © 2012 by Mark Luinenburg

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 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!

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!
