Just after receiving the book, I had it with me at a café. An acquaintance came over to say hello, saw Thursday Night Pizza among my things, and asked to see the book. He bought it and gave it to his daughter as a gift. Several months later I ran into him again, and he said his daughter just loves the book.
My children and I took to the kitchen to create a pizza using recipes from the book. We made the Sweet Crust in our bread machine, prepared the 8-Minute Pizza Sauce, and combined them to make a deep dish cheese pizza. We enjoyed sampling the crust and sauce during cooking, and when my 11 year old daughter took her first bite of the pizza she exclaimed, "Oh, this is delicious!"
Fr. Dominic Garramone's Thursday Night Pizza makes a wonderful gift for any occasion, including birthdays, holidays, thank-you, bridal shower, you're special, housewarming, thinking of you, in appreciation, or just because, or treat yourself! The book makes an ideal addition to anyone's cookbook collection.

Why Thursday, you ask? After all, isn't Friday night usually pizza night? Not at the Saint Bede Abbey in Peru, IL, because Friday is a fasting day year 'round. This makes Thursday nights at the abbey haustus night. Haustus is derived from the Latin hausere, meanig "to be filled. " And fill up these monks do on Thursdays, with relaxing community time and recreation, music, rousing games of Uno and Scrabble, lots of yummy snacks and drinks, and, of course, Father Dom's incredible pizzas. With this 115-page book of Father Dom's from Reedy Press (2010), we can be there on haustus night with the priests...well, sort of!
I was a little skeptical at first. I mean, I already had my own versions of homemade pizza dough and sauce, and my family and I liked them just fine, thank you very much. But I was intrigued. And I love cookbooks. And to top it off, Father Dom seemed funny with a good sense of humor. And a paisan, to be sure! But deep down, I just knew my dough and sauce would win out over Father Dom's! Off to the confessional to confess the sin of pride...but first: time to make the dough!Read more ›
