Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Kundalini cauliflower

    • Zosia on May 10, 2020

      The zingy dressing was a very tasty way to flavour the cauliflower - I'd use it on a roasted cauliflwer side as well. I omitted the cheese from the crust so ended up using about 150g per pizza (instead of 227g). It was delicious!

  • Focaccia bianca with herb oil

    • Zosia on May 02, 2020

      I finally had success with the white flour dough recipe with this 3rd attempt but I did make changes: I didn't use a stand mixer, mixing my dough with a danish whisk instead; I proofed the dough for only 2 hours before baking; I baked it in a cast iron pan. Based on the chart provided on page 15, I made 1/4 of the master dough recipe for a 10" pan.

  • Lemon, spinach, and cheese curd

    • mjes on September 21, 2021

      I used a sourdough master dough partially because my family would give me a hard time if I didn't. I chose the simpler crushed tomato pizza sauce rather than slapping on my favorite marinara. I used local cheese curds and Asiago cheese. I was very pleased with the results and will repeat with variations.

  • Crushed tomato pizza sauce

    • Acarroll on November 14, 2021

      This was really quick to throw together without cooking! The kids didn't notice it wasn't their normal jarred pizza sauce.

This new book from bread legend Peter Reinhart is a lushly photographed ode to the pan pizza, a doughy, crispy, crowd-pleasing version of everyone's favorite food that is easy to make in a home oven without specialty equipment like stones and peels. Starting with recipes for three master doughs that can be made with commercial yeast, as well as a brief intro to sourdough starters, Perfect Pan Pizza illustrates how to make several styles of pan pizza including Detroit-style "deep pan" pizza, focaccia and schiacciata, and Roman and Sicilian styles through step-by-step photographs. The pizzas include classic toppings like pepperoni and mushrooms, as well as an exciting variety of recipes like the sandwich-inspired Philly-style Roast Pork and Broccoli Rabe; Reuben pizza; Bacon and Egg with Tomato and Arugula Pizza; Blue Cheese, Balsamic Onion Marmalade, and Walnut Focaccia; and Rosemary Garlic Potato, Baby Kale, and Prosciutto Pizza Al Taglio. With unique recipes, plenty of informative FAQs for beginners, and a permissive and inspiring tone, this book will appeal to both experienced bread bakers and novice home pizza makers alike.
