Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Detroit red top pizza

    • sarahawker on August 16, 2016

      Made this last night with my new baking steel and steel pan. The Brick cheese was not available at any store I went to but google recommended Havarti as an alternate. Taste was almost spot on. It's rather an involved pizza, but as close as I've ever gotten outside of Detroit, however the sauce was way way way too sweet. I grew up on this pizza, this sauce is not at all correct. Next time I would completely eliminate the tomato paste and half the amount of sauce used.

  • Sicilian pizza dough without starter

    • Zosia on October 21, 2018

      Even without a starter, this dough was a 2-day project that didn't require much active time but included long periods of fermentation both in the refrigerator and at room temperature. I had trouble shaping it - I think I wasn't quite assertive enough - so it wasn't as level as I would have liked for a pizza base (higher in the centre) and I substituted Rogers bread flour for the recommended, but it was light and fluffy with a crisp, golden "fried" crust once baked, just as described.

  • Purple potato and pancetta pizza

    • Zosia on October 21, 2018

      I made this pizza to use up leftovers from previous recipes (walnut-parsley pesto, marinated feta) and even with myriad substitutions (Yukon Gold potatoes, smoked bacon, Rogers bread flour), it was fantastic. Pesto-potato-feta is one of my new, favourite combinations. With crisp bacon and gooey mozzarella, it was a perfect topping for the focaccia-like Scilian pizza crust.

  • Basil pesto

    • EmilyR on September 11, 2018

      I measured everything by weight as instructed, but the amount of oil seemed off - 280g. I used more like 150g and that even seemed like a lot. The online recipe and that in the book match. The flavor is good, though I have never made pesto with agave or any sweetener.
