He is the author of 10 books on bread, including the James Beard Award and IACP cookbook award-winning The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, and American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza.

In this class, Reinhart will demonstrate three different doughs specifically designed to make extraordinary home-baked Sicilian, Roman and Detroit-style pizzas, as well as northern Italian focaccia and Tuscan schiacciata. Best of all, these are all easy to make, whether for beginners or experienced bakers, and can be cooked in a home oven with equipment that everyone already has.
