Jim's new pizza book allows everyone to be a pizza chef at home with easy-to-follow recipes, both classic and innovative."
"The most crucial element of a good pizza is the crust. Finding and using the best mozzarella and finest of tomatoes is essential to a good pizza, but any determined potential pizzaiolo can track down good ingredients. The key is that crust and Jim Lahey is a master. His pizzas are so good I could scrape off all the toppings and still savor his magnificent pies. Jim's book "My Pizza" should be required reading for anyone serious about making pizza at home."
--Nancy Silverton Additional praise for Jim Lahey/Co.:

"(Jim Lahey is) New York's king of dough." -" Gourmet Magazine"
"Jim Lahey is one of the country's elite bread bakers, so when he decided to open a pizza place, it was huge news." -" Food & Wine Magazine"
