From the Back Cover
When Chris Bianco started Pizzeria Bianco in the back corner of a Phoenix grocery store in 1988, he had no idea that he would become a driving force in the artisanal pizza movement. All he knew was that his food would reflect the respect and sincere intention that he brings to each of his recipes, as the result of his relationships with farmers, local producers, customers, and staff.
Now a James Beard Award–winning chef—the first pizzaiolo to receive the honor—and the owner of the legendary pizza mecca, Chris Bianco brings us a full- color, fully illustrated cookbook that illuminates the fundamentals of pizza making and the philosophy behind Chris’s cooking. The book features recipes for his signature pizzas as well as strategies and techniques for translating chef’s methods to the home kitchen.
Bianco celebrates both the simple and the nuanced, revealing the methods that lead to the perfect crust, the sweetest tomato sauce, the creamiest mozzarella, and the most expertly balanced flavor combinations. It also features recipes for salads, antipasti, and dessert options, as well as family meals that are cooked behind the scenes and a new array of big plates showcased at Chris’s highly regarded restaurants. With its attention to detail and tips for making unforgettable, flavorful pizzas, Bianco is an essential manual for anyone serious about pizza, pasta, and more.

However, there is a LOT of gold in this book. First off, Chris meticulously explains his pizza sauce - great! He goes over his 6 signature pizzas with detailed instructions - awesome. His salad dressings are excellent - I have tried the balsamic and red wine vinegar ones so far. His meatball recipe is killer!
So my recommendation is - buy this book if you'd like to learn Chris' philosophy, his favorite recipes and his favorite pizza toppings. Know that the dough recipe in the book isn't that great and expect to alter it or swap it out for another. His flavor combinations will still be very enjoyable and can add to your repertoire.
