A revolutionary guide to making delicious pizza at home, offering a variety of base doughs so that your pizza will turn out perfect no matter what kind of oven or equipment you have.Pizza remains America’s favorite food, but one that many people hesitate to make at home. In Mastering Pizza, award-winning chef Marc Vetri tackles the topic with his trademark precision, making perfect pizza available to anyone. The recipes—gleaned from years spent researching recipes in Italy and perfecting them in America—have a variety of base doughs of different hydration levels, which allow home cooks to achieve the same results with a regular kitchen oven as they would with a professional pizza oven. The book covers popular standards like Margherita and Carbonara while also featuring unexpected toppings such as mussels and truffles—and even a dessert pizza made with Nutella. With transporting imagery from Italy and hardworking step-by-step photos to demystify the process, Mastering Pizza will help you make pizza as delicious as you find in Italy.
“Marc Vetri has an artist and a scientist and a genius all rolled into his beautiful, gnocchi-shaped head. I would need all the curse words in the English and Italian languages to fully express the brilliance that lies within these pages. If you are serious about making pizza, buy every copy in the store.”
“Thorough, diverse, transparent, and beautiful, a template for this world and this amazing portrait of pizza, Brother Vetri goes deep into the many roads of all things flat and fired, and they all lead to delicious perfection! I love this book so much.”
—CHRIS BIANCO, chef and author of Bianco
