Pizza Recipes & Making Pizza
|THIN & CRACKERY PIZZA RECIPES
This is the original PizzaMaking.com thin & crackery crust pizza recipe.
The goal was to replicate the "Thin & Crispy" styles found at some of the national pizza
chains (e.g., Pizza Hut, Pizza Inn, Village Inn, etc.) Rated: Very good.
This recipe was created by Deven Mercer, a contributor to this web site.
His recipe is styled after the once-popular "Thin & Crispy" pizza found at the original
Pizza Inn restaurants back in the early 1970s (that's before Pizza Inn went through bankruptcy, reemerging
with a new look and changed recipes.) Rated: Excellent.
|NEW YORK STYLE (NEAPOLITAN-AMERICAN) PIZZA RECIPES
A very basic New York style pizza recipe. We're working on a much better version,
so check back often. Rated: Good.
Tom "The Dough Doctor" Lehmann, Director of Bakery Assistance for the American
Institute of Baking, has created this recipe in an effort to duplicate the "street pizza" found
at the street corner pizzerias of New York City. With its puffy, chewy edge, and thin tapered middle,
this style of pizza droops and must be folded to eat by hand. Rated: Excellent.
|CHICAGO STYLE PIZZA RECIPES
This recipe was created by Deven Mercer, a contributor to this web site. Deven's
recipe successfully replicates the Chicago style deep dish pizza that put the Windy City on the pizza
map! This recipe produces a thick, biscuit-like crust that is topped with mozzarella cheese and crushed
tomatoes. Rated: Excellent.
A recipe by Jeff Smith, author of the Frugal Gourmet Cooks American. Jeff's
recipe attempts to duplicate the deep dish pizza found at the world famous Pizzeria Uno (and Pizzeria
Due) restaurant located in downtown Chicago. Rated: Good.
This recipe produces a generic Chicago style stuffed pizza. Rated: Very good.
This recipe was created by pizza aficionado Pete Brooks. His recipe attempts
to create a pie that's similar to the deep dish pizza found at the locally famous Papa Dels pizzeria
in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois. Papa Del's crust is different from the usual Chicago fare in that it's
generally thicker, more dense, and more bread-like. Rated: Very good.
This recipe was created by a fellow member of this web site. The recipe attempts
to duplicate the now-popular "Pan Pizza" found at many pizzerias around the country (including Pizza
Hut.) A pan pizza is a pie that's literally fried in its cooking pan by the liberal use of vegetable
oil poured in. Rated: Very good.
