Overview

Pizza lovers, rejoice! Bestselling cookbook authors Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough are back with an exciting new collection of ninety classic, international, and modern recipes for everyone's favorite food.

Finally, here's a book that lets you have it both ways—on the grill and in the oven. Bake a pie tonight for that traditional pizza-parlor taste or grill one this weekend on the deck or patio, and you'll discover what home chefs across the country are realizing: the grill is a great way to get a hot pie on the table.

Bruce and Mark adapt their recipes so that you can use a homemade dough, a store-bought one, or even a prebaked crust. With recipes for three sauces and eight crusts, Pizza makes America's favorite food easier and more fun than ever.

From the well loved to the adventurous, Pizza is full of Bruce and Mark's foolproof recipes that are sure to please every palate. There's something for everyone: classic pies like the cheese-laden Pizza Margherita and the Four Seasons Pizza, international pies revamped for the American kitchen like the Armenian Lamejun Pizza and the Alsatian Tarte Flambé, light salad pies like the BLT Pizza, and modern twists on old favorites. Try a Philly Cheesesteak Pizza or a Pot Pie Pizza, modeled on those American comfort-food classics. Pizza also offers ten recipes for Chicago-style deep-dish pies and a host of fun appetizer pies, making pizza perfect for every occasion.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

According to Weinstein and Scarbrough, authors of the Ultimate cookbook series, Americans eat more than 46 slices of takeout pizza per year. On a mission to enable pie lovers to make fresh, quality pizza at home, the duo has created 100 recipes ranging from classics like four cheese and sausage and pepper to more inventive concoctions such as one made with squash and chard and another with duck confit. A primer chapter includes easy-to-follow instructions for a variety of doughs, including semolina and gluten-free dough that can be mixed and matched with recipes throughout the book. An eight-step "Road Map for Pizza" is a simple and effective guide to pizza making for all level of cooks. Options for using prepared crusts, as well as those made on pizza stones, baking sheets or the grill, give the home cook a desirable flexibility with crust preparation. Worthy chapters on deep-dish and salad-topped pizzas round out the book. (Jan.)

Library Journal

In their best-selling "Ultimate" series, including The Ultimate Ice Cream Book and ten other titles, Weinstein and Scarbrough include dozens of basic recipes with hundreds of variations. In their new pizza book, they present eight crust recipes and three versatile sauces, followed by 80 or so pizzas based on them, from an elegant Artichoke, Olive, and Feta Pie to a hearty Mushroom Lover's Deep-Dish Pizza. Most of the recipes are mouthwatering, though a few miss the mark (Peas and Carrots Pizza, anyone?). There's also a section on equipment and techniques and a glossary of favorite cheeses. For most collections.
