Pizza is one of those things that is loved by almost everyone, and while there are those who order it often, it’s nice when it can be made successfully at home. Pippa Cuthbert and Lindsay Cameron Wilson, in their cookbook, Pizza: Over 100 Innovative Recipes for Crusts, Sauces, and Toppings for Every Pizza Lover have made it so that everyone, whether a beginning cook or advanced cook, can make perfect pizza at home.

The book includes chapters on ingredients – choosing them and using them, as well as a chapter on any equipment needed or equipment that would be nice to have. There are several different doughs presented, including gluten-free and non-yeast based – a tortilla base, a Keto base, and others like Foccacia and a flatbread base. All of the bases tried so far have turned out perfectly.

The real genius of this cookbook is the variety of the toppings used to make unique and innovative pizzas. There is something for everyone in this book, everyone, at least who loves pizza. There is an entire chapter on Classics, and it includes Margherita, Quattro Formaggi, and Florentina to name a few; two favorites from this chapter are Bianca and Puttanesca. There is also a beautiful Pissaladière, a classic from Nice made famous many years ago by Julia Child. Innovative and new pizzas include Chicken, Cranberry, and Brie, Caramelized Onion, prosciutto, and Peach, and Roasted Red lOnion, Artichoke, and Sage. There are also calzones and flatbreads.

One of the bonuses of this excellent Pizza cookbook is that it includes beautiful photographs that will make readers’ mouths water. It will be almost impossible to choose which pizza to make now, and it just may inspire cooks to make pizza every day of the week.
