Format: Paperback
The chapters in Thursday Night Pizza: Father Dominic's Favorite Pizza Recipes include Pizza Basics, Crusts and Sauces, Appetizers, Pizzas, and Desserts. I loved reading the notes listed after the recipes, which are charming and unique. The book is well designed, easy to use, pleasing to the eye, and manufactured with quality material. Most of the recipes use ingredients found in a typical kitchen. The others give cooks an opportunity to expand their horizons. The recipes are easy to follow, so everyone can join in the fun of creating and eating delicious pizzas. And who doesn't like pizza?

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.

I am afraid that using the recipes in this book have turned me into a "pizza snob"! I love the pizzas that my husband and I are making at home so much that I turn up my nose when friends ask us to join them at a pizza joint! I am now shopping for another pizza stone so I can be baking in both ovens when family comes to dinner! I love Father Dominic's personality and non-preachy piety!

How typical that this Italian girl would find a book like this! I gave it five stars because it really beats out any other pizza book I've seen. From the moment I received Thursday Night Pizza—Father Dominic's Favorite Pizza Recipes, I was putting on my Italian flag apron and getting out my pizza stones. Written by Father Dominic Garramone, O.S.B., of public television's "Breaking Bread" show, this monk certainly knows his way around the kitchen. After all, he's been in charge of making pizzas for his fellow monks for twenty years. Ask them, and they'll tell you that nobody makes pizza like Father Dom.

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!

This is a truly great book. He actually teaches kids how to make pizza, so it should not come as any surprise that the instructions are very easy to understand and follow even for a novice chef. My family and I do pizza on Saturdays now and a get together. Just follow his directions on making the pizza dough, put it in the fridge for the next day and prep the toppings a couple minutes before hand for a wonderful custom pizza night. Not to mention that with a few substitutions such as turkey pepperoni’s or fat free mozzarella cheese a personal pizza can be made with less calories than a slice of some deliver places... In fact I have bought this book 3 more times, as gifts for friends and family.

Super, great and generally a wonderful book! I have all Fr. Dominic's bread baking books and they are the very best. I love them all and I use them often. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves baking their own pizza.
