Inspired by a trip to Naples, the birthplace of pizza, Charles and Michele became determined to find ways to duplicate their favorite dish at home. Charles, who didn't even know the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon, had to start from the beginning. He made pizza after pizza, and soon Charles, who had never cooked anything in his life, was able to make perfect pizza from scratch. Friends were amazed not just by how good Charles's pizzas were, but by how simple his techniques were.
Now, after mastering the art of making pizza, the Scicolones share their easy-to-follow tips and shortcuts: from mixing, kneading, and shaping the dough to choosing the right toppings.
