Pizza, there is something more wholesome about making it at home. You control the quality of the ingredients, the self-satisfaction of creating it from scratch and the interaction with family and friends. Owner and chef at Pizza Paradiso restaurants in the Washington DC area, Chef Ruth Gresser has gathered up her 23 years of pizza knowledge and put it her Kitchen Workshop: Pizza - Hands-On Cooking Lessons for Making Amazing Pizza at Home cookbook

Kitchen Workshop: Pizza offers readers step-by-step photographs, pretty much everything you wanted to know about pizza making; lessons for crusts, sauces, toppings and more.

With help from Kitchen Workshop: Pizza readers will be pizza experts in no time. This easy-to-navigate book is a complete curriculum for making your own pizza using a regular home oven and the tools most people already have in their kitchens.

  • Level 1 begins with the basics, including seven variations on the tomato-cheese pizza and recipes for doughs, including a gluten-free pizza dough.
  • Level 2 moves to the classics and showcases all of the hits, including Pizza Margherita, Pizza Quatro Formaggi—and even a Calzone.
  • Level 3 is filled with original pizza recipes from Ruth's award winning Washington, D.C. restaurants.
  • Levels 4, 5, 6, & 7 will find readers learning to take their own pizzas to the next level with lessons on sauces, proteins, vegetables, and fruit toppings
