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.

An in-depth guide to pan pizza from baking authority Peter Reinhart, including achievable recipes for making Detroit-, Sicilian-, and Roman-style pan pizzas and focaccias in a home oven.

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.
