Mastering Pizza by Marc Vetri is an excellent guide for making great Italian-style pizza, starting with the dough and exploring a wide range of creative toppings. Also focaccia and calzone! Pizza is America’s favorite food and inexpensive, portable pizza ovens are becoming a common sight on many back patios. If you haven’t made pizza from scratch, give it a try.

As a novice pizza maker myself, I appreciate useful cookbooks that are patient with the reader, present the material in an easy-to-follow format, and help to produce food that tastes as good as it looks. Whether you are still learning how to make your dough easier to shape or would like suggestions for tasty toppings, Mastering Pizza is a great addition to your pizza library.
