Description



Book Synopsis



The James Beard and IACP Award-winning author of Flour Water Salt Yeast and one of the most trusted baking authorities in the country proves that amazing pizza is within reach of any home cook.

"If there were ever to be a bible for all things pizza--and I mean all things--Ken Forkish has just written it."--Marc Vetri, author of Mastering Pasta and owner of Vetri

The Elements of Pizza breaks down each step of the pizza-making process, from choosing a dough to shaping your pie to selecting cheeses and toppings that will work for your home kitchen setup. Forkish offers more than a dozen different dough recipes--same-day "Saturday doughs" that you can make in the morning to bake pizza that night, levain doughs made from a naturally fermented yeast starter, and even gluten-free dough--each of which results in the best, most texturally sublime crust you've ever made at home.

His clear, expert instructions will have you shaping pies and loading a pizza peel with the confidence of a professional pizzaiolo. And his innovative, seasonal topping ideas will surprise and delight any pizza lover--and inspire you to create your own signature pies, just the way you like them.



Review Quotes




"If there were ever to be a bible for all things pizza--and I mean all things --Ken Forkish has just written it. The detail that went into this book is so vast and exact that after reading it you will simply never have another question about any kind of pizza, from anywhere in the world."--Marc Vetri, author of Mastering Pasta and owner of Vetri

"Ken Forkish is one of the world's great pie men, so it should be no surprise that The Elements of Pizza is an essential addition to the pizza canon. Forkish's formidable intellect and knowledge, combined with his can-do spirit, will turn any pizza lover into a pizza maker."--Ed Levine, founder and CEO of Serious Eats

"If you're into pizza--and who isn't?--The Elements of Pizza is your new holy book. There's something here for every cook, from weeknight-ready recipes to intricate explorations of dough chemistry. Ken Forkish is clearly a man obsessed, and lucky for us: much has been written about this globally beloved food, but this book has them all beat." --Molly Wizenberg, author of Delancey and A Homemade Life

"With The Elements of Pizza, Ken Forkish proves there is no right or wrong style of pizza. The right pizza is whatever you like--and whether you fancy Neapolitan, Roman, New York, or any other style, Ken guides you smoothly through the process. But this is not just a book about crusts and toppings: it is also full of interesting history and fun stories. In fact, this terrific book is itself one of the essential elements of making great pizza at home." --Nancy Silverton, chef/co-owner of the Mozza Restaurant Group

"The Elements of Pizza is a cookbook for anyone who loves pizza--particularly those with a deep appreciation for the crust. Ken's own passion for pizza took him to Italy and across the United States to uncover the techniques and ingredients that make incredible pizza. Starting from the ground up, this straightforward guide provides readers of all skill levels with techniques and tips to master a variety of pizza doughs, and culminates in delicious recipes that prove that great pizza can be made everywhere--especially at home." --Nathan Myhrvold, coauthor of Modernist Cuisine and author of The Photography of Modernist Cuisine

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received as a Christmas gift but we haven’t been able to use it yet but we are definitely looking forward to it. I am kind of bummed that I have to choose gas start of wood. I was hoping I could make that feature interchangeable.

This book revealed secrets to making a great pizza! As much as my husband had worked on perfecting pizza over the years, he was able to produce his best yet after reading this book. Always made good pizza but this jettisoned him to new levels!!
