From the bestselling authors of the ground-breaking, hugely popular Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, a cookbook featuring their revolutionary approach to bread-making, this time especially for pizza and flatbreads

With close to 400,000 copies of their books in print, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois have proven that people want to bake their own bread, provided they can do it easily and quickly. After hearing tons of fan feedback, Zoe and Jeff couldnt escape a basic truth: readers found their pizzas and flatbread recipes to be the fastest in the books.  If you have a batch of their stored dough in the fridge, and youve pre-heated your oven on a timer, you can be as little as 15 minutes away from piping hot pizza.  For busy people, there is no faster dinner preparation. 

In Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day, Jeff and Zoe will show readers how to use their ground-breaking techniques for lightning-fast breads to make pizzas, flatbreads and sweet and savory tarts from stored, no-knead dough. Where appropriate, the authors include soups, salads and spreads that turn flatbreads or pizzas into a complete meal.  Ingredients include grains and toppings from around the world, as well as healthy alternatives that are locally available.  Informative sidebars provide health facts and other items of interest to a wide range of readers.  Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day will make Americans heroes of home cooking by giving them the tools to make their all-time favorite meals in minutes.  Its easier than it looks!

Includes recipes for:

Classic Sicilian thick-crust white clam pizza

Chicago-style deep-dish pizza

Provençal anchovy pizza with a cracked eggMexican corn flatbread with tomatillo and chillis Gorgonzola and fresh fig tart

Breakfast pizza with prosciutto, parmigiano and egg

Pocket pizzas for parties and school lunches

Pizza or bread questions are answered at www.PizzaIn5.com.

Review:

"The tips and techniques section alone makes this book invaluable to anyone attempting to make pizza at home. Every problem you might encounter is discussed in a friendly, you're-not-stupid-for-asking-this-question! manner. Hertzberg and François start with the basics: 'How brown should pizza cheese get?' or 'How do you prevent a soggy pizza crust?' and move to the more scientific: 'Why do you cut medium-soft cheese into chunks rather than grating or slicing it?' The recipe section is similarly orchestrated. The first recipe, for a classic Margherita pie, is painstakingly broken down into finely detailed directions, with pictures in case you get lost. You'll actually enjoy reading the directions, as the authors provide reasons for every move: 'Do not punch down the dough! With our method, you're trying to retain as much gas in the dough as possible, and punching it down knocks out gas and will make your pizza and flatbreads dense.' It feels encouraging, not coddling, and soon you'll be making the delicious recipes, like Turkish spiced lamb flatbread or goat cheese and onion pizzette." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day follows the highly popular Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The authors have turned their focus to pizza, making it not only easy for every home cook to obtain the best possible results, but also making it such a quick and painless process that you will be tempted to eat pizza everyday! It has the same format as their previous books with first a master recipe, then many interesting variations. Heavy on detailed instructions, there are just a few color photos to give you an idea of the final product.

Master Recipe Olive Oil Variation - This is an easy, reliable recipe that has replaced my standard pizza dough recipe. I do love that you can have it just sitting in the fridge waiting to be used. It makes weeknight homemade pizza a cinch.

The Ultimate Tender Neapolitan Crust - I made this recipe to use up some extra cake flour I had on hand. It definitely changed the texture of the crust though I found it pleasantly chewy rather than tender.

Sauce from Canned Tomatoes - Easy and delicious. I will make this again and again.

White Pizza with Spinach -
This was the big wow recipe of the book for me. Fabulously good pizza with not much effort. This is a pizza I crave, then eat all week once I have the ingredients in the house.

Individual Breakfast Pizza -
Fun Sunday breakfast for kids. I made it in muffin tins and it was tasty.

Its hard to argue with fresh, easy pizza. I can't imagine there are many households out there that don't need a copy of this cookbook!
