I have not tried the basic recipe that is provided for pizza dough but oh my does it look good and easy. I’ve just recently tried baking bread which came out pretty darn tasty so I think that this is perfect for my next baking challenge. Aside from the what looks to be simple recipe for the dough, there are 15 red pizzas, 14 white pizzas, 9 no sauce pizzas, a small assortment of toppings, soups and salads and a handful of desserts. The photos are beautiful but the beauty lies in the recipes. Each recipe has a short note accompanying it with explanatory notes and background. There are pies here for everyone; meat eaters, non meat eaters, sauce eaters, non sauce eaters, cheese lovers and non cheese eaters. I would never have thought to put cauliflower on a pizza, or corn, or scallions, or brussel sprouts and chesnuts. I forsee a lot of pizza at my house this summer.
