Book Description

This cookbook is a complete look at the making of pizza, from dough to finished pie. Focusing on technique and fundamentals, it will teach you how to prepare all of the famous types of pizzas such as hand tossed, deep dish, stuffed crust, calzone, grilled pizza, and dessert pizza to name a few. It also includes the outlines of toppings for some of the more archetypal pies such as the famous “White Pizza” and “Pizza Margherita”.

After mastering the techniques and sauces here you will be able to make pizzas that far excel those of the famous chain restaurants in both flavor and appearance (of course homemade is always healthier, too). But remember, it is your pie, so don’t let anyone else tell you what you should put on top of it and you won’t have to eat humble pie!

I like how the book is organized. The first chapter provides recipes for basic Pizza Dough, Roasted Garlic, Marinated Mozzarella, Marinara, Pesto, and Barbeque Sauce. One you are armed with the basics, you're ready to create the remaining recipes in the book.

The recipes cover techniques for Pan Pizza, Deep Dish Pizza, Stuffed Pizza, Stuffed Crust Pizza, Twisted Crust Pizza, Calzone, Grilled Pizza and more. The author (listed as Cooking Penquin - I'll bet that isn't their real name!) puts a lot of emphasis on using fresh ingredients. I was very pleased to see a recipe for homemade marinara. It is so easy to make and so much better for you than jarred sauces where the second ingredient is usually high-fructose corn syrup.

This e-cookbook is very well-formatted and organized and contains beautiful professional photographs. The writing flows well, with only the occasional typo (Stawberry; garlic separated and pealed.) Whether you've wanted to make homemade pizza but thought it might be above your skill level, or you are looking to expand your pizza repertoire, I think you will find many helpful tips and recipes here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok beginner's guide March 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have made a lot of pizzas and learned a lot from my mistakes, but I didn't find these cautions in the book. For example, 350 degrees is way too low. Pizzarias set their oven over 500 degrees, and forget about the heat levels in a brick / charcoal oven. Second, thin crust is good. Third, use a wooden tray / spatula to make and slide the pizza into the oven. Anything else the pizza will stick to your tray and you wont be able to slide that pizza into the oven unless your mouth gets a full glob of flour.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very fine Penguin Pizza Guide, that... February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
... gives You all You have to know to make Your first steps into the wide wide world that is making excellent Pizzas at home.

In all the years of the culinary evolution of Pizza all around the globe, they all always share the basics: Flour dough with or without tomato sauce, cheese and everything You can imagine or not to put on it.
And the fresher the toppings are, the better Your Pizza will become...
Do not try to economize on the cheese - a mozzarella made by buffaloes is a whole world apart from cheap, yet melted cheese...

First this book introduces You to the basics:
Like the Pizza dough, how to treat Your garlic, how to marinate mozzarella if You want to, how to prepare a good Marinara aka tomato sauce and Pesto (You can also use them perfectly for Dips or on Pasta...), and a BBQ sauce.

Then there are the different styles and techniques You can chose to prepare Your pizza:
Pan Pizza, the mostly used method
Deep Dish Pizza
Stuffed Pizza aka Round Calzone
The new Stuffed Crust Pizza
Twisted Crust Pizza
Calzone
Grilled Pizza
White Pizza
Follow some variations on the Pizza theme.
And Appetizers and Bonuses, like a Dessert Pizza, close the book.

It is all in Your own fantasy what You will make out of the basics.
Try a little, play a little, ask Your friends or study menues of Pizzerias.
What You need, is here in this book.

Have a good Pizza time!

Pizza Pie in the Sky: A Complete Guide to Pizza
Like this book because it has pictures and tells you about the history of how pizza was created and how to make it yourself, healthy and
then all the other things that you can make to put on top.
Also describes in detail the different styles of pizza and how to make them, step by step, kneading, etc.
Pizza sticks would be my favorite, fast and easy to make.
Bonus recipes at the end even a dessert one! Other cookbooks are highlighted at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four Stars! August 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Until I master this recipe it only gets four. I have made the dough but the bottom is dry and tasteless! I have got to fix that problem! Other recipes are in this and I found at least 3 I have searched for recently, that's a plus. PIZZA MARGHARITA!

Very good starter book with basic pizza, pesto and sauce recipes. It gives a great basis for fresh sauces and dough and the simplicity of pizza. There seems to be no reason to ever buy frozen pizza!

I have made the pizza crust several times already. The directions are easy to follow. The ingredients are in most pantries. Next I will be trying the pizza sauce.
