What is it that separates good pizza from great pizza? Find out as you journey into the heart of this popular food with Peter Reinhart, a world-class expert on artisan bread baking and pizza making. In this seven-part series, we travel the California coast — stopping in Colorado — in the pursuit of perfect pizza and the fascinating people who make it. Each episode centers on artisan techniques and recipes, from the traditional Italian to gourmet spins using local ingredients, and explores the powerful emotions that pizza gives rise to (pun intended).
Cooking is all about creativity. Bringing new and unexpected flavors together is a fun (and delicious) way to express yourself, and it’s even better when you can do it with your kids! Join Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani as he puts his pizza-making skills to the test. He’s challenged to make crazy-delicious pizzas using different — and sometimes strange — ingredients, from bananas to crickets. In each episode, one of Fabio’s kid-sidekicks spins a wheel to randomly select two ingredients that he must use. And, in honor of the YouTube Pizza Challenge, they both must taste the results.
