Has anyone read My Bread: The Revolutionary No-Work, No-Knead Method by Jim Lahey?  Does it cover any new ground?  Does it have anything about making pizza?

Not really, The first 50 pages are about how he got into the business. Then there are some very basic things about yeast, flour and so on. Then it basically gets into the recipes.

Hi, I have read the book and think it is great.  It does have some pizza recipes in there. However, if interested you should check out his new book "My Pizza" which is awesome.  It seems like he tweaked the pizza recipes a bit from "My Bread".  I think its a great book on pizza, at least for me as a beginner.

Best,
David

Pizza is not bread.

I use his method as the basis for all my bread baking. I tried the pizza recipe from this book once, and didn't like it (more of a pan pizza style, which I don't particularly like). I don't know what changes he made to the recipe in My Pizza.

Barry, check out this short video of Lahey making pizza from his new book.  In short instead of pan pizza he is cooking it on a pizza stone with a bake/ broil method.  I really enjoy it.
