There are numerous books on pizza out there and so far, I thought that 'elements of pizza' was by far the best book out there; but this book gives it a serious run for its money.
Why? From the first pages I had the 'aha!' moments: the author explains in beautifully simple language what dough hydration is and why it matters, why certain types of flour are used and what difference would be achieved if you swapped them. From my experience understanding why certain things are done the way they are form the foundation of achieving that perfect pie/whatever you're making. The definition of perfection is completely subjective - I love pizza certain way, every family member has their own preferences. This book caters to all as is does not just land you with one recipe but arms you with an arsenal of techniques to make choices that produce THAT pizza you crave. Masterpiece!
However, I followed an option in one of the recipes and ended up with flat dough. I was suspicious about putting 0.2g of active dry yeast for 1 kg dough and leaving it in the fridge for 24 hours, but decided to give it a go. After seeing the result, I would advise against this. I might try with a lot more yeast e.g. 2 g. It is a shame as I am now not sure which of the recipes I can safely follow and which I should avoid.
