Cook the Book: Nancy Silverton's Pizza Dough 

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 25 comments

The beauty of Nancy Silverton's Pizza Dough is that she went about creating it from a bread baker's perspective stemming from her beginnings at L.A.'s La Brea Bakery. Her goal for the pizzas at Mozza was to create a dough with an open hole structure, where the just baked crust was full of big, irregular air pockets, giving it an airy cornice (or outer rim). For The Mozza Cookbook, Silverton tweaked her dough recipe used in the pizzeria for home cooks (those of us who don't have the luxury of a high heat wood-fired pizza oven). More

These are the ravioli that runny yolk lovers dream of: oversized packets of fresh pasta dough filled with creamy, nutmeg-spiked ricotta with a single egg yolk nestled within.

Cook the Book: Meatballs al Forno

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 5 comments

Nancy Silverton had traditional Italian cuisine on the mind when writing menus for Osteria Mozza but when it came to Pizzeria Mozza she made one Italian-American exception on the menu for meatballs. And it was a happy exception: these Meatballs al Forno adapted from The Mozza Cookbook ended up being the most popular antipasto on the menu. More
