Why do most diets fail? Why do so many people who initially lose weight quickly pack it all back on—and then some? It’s simple, really. Dieting, a.k.a. denying yourself certain favorite foods, is just too hard for anyone to do for any length of time. And how long could you deny yourself pizza? But what if you didn’t have to say “no”? Chef Pasquale Cozzolino of Naples, Italy, did just that and lost nearly 100 pounds. When his doctor warned him to lose weight or risk early death, Chef Cozzolino knew he had to find a diet plan he could stick with, one that would allow him to eat the food he grew up on and loved in his native country—pizza! So, he consulted nutritionists, immersed himself in the science of weight loss, and developed the Pizza Diet: Eat a hearty breakfast every morning, enjoy a 12-inch Neapolitan pizza for lunch every day, and finish off with a light yet satisfying meal of fresh vegetables and lean protein for dinner. The results? You will quickly reduce your daily calories without ever feeling deprived.

Books Description:

The dough is undoubtedly the most important element to making a good quality pizza, however, it is vital that the dough is treated correctly and that the fundamental steps of proper maturation and leavening are respected. The maturation of the dough is the result of a process known as "enzymatic hydrolysis", but what are the enzymes that intervene in the splitting of complex parts thus enabling them to be more easily assimilated by the body? What techniques must we adopt to achieve this result? Is it better to use a direct or an indirect dough method? Can we get dough maturation at room temperature? Teaching the art of pizza, as well as practicing it as a profession, has led me to translate one of my books. I wanted to give concrete answers to these kinds of questions. My approach takes into account the science based biochemical aspects of dough making and combines it with loads of useful practical advice. A whole chapter has been dedicated to recipes for dough preparation, both direct and indirect methods, combined with specific maturation techniques.

Books Description:

You can pick Chicago deep dish, Sicilian, or New York-style; pan crust or thin crust; anchovies or pepperoni. There are countless ways to create the dish called pizza, as well as a never-ending debate on the best way of cooking it. Now Carol Helstosky documents the fascinating history and cultural life of this chameleon-like food in Pizza. Originally a food for the poor in eighteenth-century Naples, the pizza is a source of national and regional pride as well as cultural identity in Italy, Helstosky reveals. In the twentieth century, the pizza followed Italian immigrants to America, where it became the nation’s most popular dish and fueled the rise of successful fast-food corporations such as Pizza Hut and Domino’s. Along the way, Helstosky explains, pizza has been adapted to local cuisines and has become a metaphor for cultural exchange. Pizza also features several recipes and a wealth of illustrations, including a photo of the world’s largest and most expensive pizza—sprinkled with edible 24-karat gold shavings and costing over $4000. Whether you love sausage and onions on your pizza or unadorned cheese, Pizza has enough offerings to satiate even the pickiest of readers.

Books Description:

In the past twenty years, interest in wood-fired ovens has increased dramatically in the United States and abroad, but most books focus on how to bake bread or pizza in an oven. From the Wood-Fired Oven offers many more techniques for home and artisan bakers—from baking bread and making pizza to recipes on how to get as much use as possible out of a single oven firing, from the first live-fire roasting to drying wood for the next fire. From the Wood-Fired Oven offers a new take on traditional techniques for professional bakers, but is simple enough to inspire any nonprofessional baking enthusiast. Leading baker and instructor Richard Miscovich wants people to use their ovens to fulfill the goal of maximum heat utilization. Readers will find methods and techniques for cooking and baking in a wood-fired oven in the order of the appropriate temperature window. What comes first—pizza, or pastry? Roasted vegetables or a braised pork loin? Clarified butter or beef jerky? In addition to an extensive section of delicious formulas for many types of bread, readers will find chapters on: • Making pizza and other live-fire flatbreads; • Roasting fish and meats; • Grilling, steaming, braising, and frying; • Baking pastry and other recipes beyond breads; • Rendering animal fats and clarifying butter; • Food dehydration and infusing oils; • And myriad other ways to use the oven's residual heat. Appendices include oven-design recommendations, a sample oven temperature log, Richard's baker's percentages, proper care of a sourdough starter, and more. . . . From the Wood Fired Oven is more than a cookbook; it reminds the reader of how a wood-fired oven (and fire, by extension) draws people together and bestows a sense of comfort and fellowship, very real human needs, especially in uncertain times. Indeed, cooking and baking from a wood-fired oven is a basic part of a resilient lifestyle, and a perfect example of valuable traditional skills being put to use in modern times.
