Here's a good pizza book
« on: August 20, 2003, 01:23:02 PM »
The Art Of Pizza Making by Dominick DeAngelis is a good, authentic book for pizzas.  It covers everything from sauces to dough making to toppings, cheeses and baking tips.  It does not elaborate much at all on making a thin and crispy crust, though.  But, for everything else, it's great and has many different recipes. 

93 pages. 

You can get it at Amazon.com:

Good thing I looked in this post because I was going to mention this book.
Title should be in the topic.  ;)

Anyways I enjoyed this book, it's small to the point type of book
The author has my thoughts even some of the things I use like peanut oil.
not using extra virgin olive oil because of the taste. I'm not hip on olive oil taste.
He also has fried pizza, fried Calzones which I do also.
It's one of those books you read and say wow this is right on with what I do.
He talked about letting the dough rise once then refrigerating it, just like myself
And that you can use it after a couple hrs of refrigeration. hmm like myself too
but better to use it the next day. I agree.

But he doesn't have Pizza Freet! Just the dough fried!
Like my Great Italian Grammema use to make! So there! LOL!
I'm one up on you Brother Dominick!  :-D
Sprinkle a little sugar on that fried dough and Man it's Great!

Anyways good book I think it cost me 10 bucks.

The guy also sells his high gluten flour.
I may end up ordering some of that just to see how it is.
But it's probably just King Authors Sir Lancelot  :D

Ok, I read Dominicks guide several times, I call it a guide because that is what it is,
It's not a book but a guide. It's small, it's compact, It's simple, it's to the point.
It has some interesting facts for the Science Pizza guy type mixed in, it's under 10 bucks, It's perfect.

Make no mistake that this is not a negitive comment but the highest praise
I can give a book on pizza.
If you want a guide to make great pizza this is the book to get.
This is a book/guide  will have flour on it because it will be in your kitchen not
on your coffee table.  It's compact and written to tell you everything you need to know
how to make pizza at home.

I've read, American Pie, and More than 60 recipes for delicious homemade pizza.
Those are good books, but I just connected with Dominicks little book.

Actually Dominick would fit right here on this message board.
