From the bestselling authors of the ground-breaking Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day comes a much-anticipated new cookbook featuring their revolutionary approach to yeast dough in over 100 easy pizza and flatbread recipes.

With nearly half a million copies of their books in print, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François have proven that people want to bake their own bread—as long as they can do it quickly and easily. When fans hailed their pizza and flatbread recipes as the fastest in their books, Jeff and Zoe got busy creating all new recipes. With a batch of their stored dough in the fridge and a pre-heated oven or backyard grill, you can give your family what they crave…

Home-made, mouth-watering pizzas, flatbreads, and sweet and savory tarts, prepared in minutes!

In Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day, Jeff and Zoë show readers how to use their ingenious technique to make lightning-fast pizzas, flatbreads, and sweet and savory tarts from stored, no-knead dough.  In addition to the classic flatbread doughs and pizza crusts, there are alternatives with whole grain, spelt, and gluten-free ingredients, and the authors include soups, salads, and spreads that turn flatbreads or pizza into a complete meal.  In just five minutes a day of active preparation time, you can create favorites like Classic Margherita, Pita pockets, Chicago Deep Dish, White Clam Pizza, and Blush Apple Tart.  Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day proves that making pizza has never been this fast or easy. So rise…to the occasion and get baking!

Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day
1PIZZA AND FLATBREAD ARE THE FASTEST BREADS WE MAKE: STORING THE DOUGH MAKES THE DIFFERENCEBy the time we finished our second bread cookbook, we came to a basic truth: our pizzas and flatbreads were the fastest and often the most beloved recipes in our repertoire. Why? Because unlike loaf breads, they require little or no rest time after shaping them. So if you have a batch of our stored dough in the fridge (where it's been developing richer flavor over its storage life), and you've preheated your oven, you can be as little as ten minutes away

Pizza Party in Five!

Jeff and I wrote Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day because we love pizza. So, when it came to making a video about the process, it had to reflect what a riot we have together creating these recipes. You basically can't bake a pizza without creating a party, whether it is for a night in front of a movie or a big gathering of friends in the back yard. Pick the crust and toppings to suit your mood and within minutes you have pizza, lots and lots of fresh pizza.

Praise for Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in Five Minutes a Day

Praise for Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day

“Soon the bread will be making itself… The crusty, full-flavored loaf that results may be the world’s easiest yeast bread.” --The New York Times

“If man cannot live by bread alone, it may be because Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François didn’t publish their book sooner… [They've] developed a method that makes any home into a mini artisan bake shop… Hertzberg and François’ practical, common-sense method… is, quite simply, genius.” --Robin Mathers Jenkins, Chicago Tribune

“… even people who’ve spent their lives avoiding the kitchen can whip up a loaf of bread in five minutes…” --The Today Show

“… a book that has eliminated that marathon of prep and angst… the aroma’s wonderful, and there’s a slightly sour tang… ooh, that’s dynamite!  This is fabulous…” --Lynne Rossetto Kasper, on The Splendid Table radio show, 12/15/2007

“… whenever we need bread, I just dip into the container, pull out some dough, let it rest a bit and then bake a loaf, rolls, or pizza.  This method is amazingly simple—and creates authentic European-style fresh bread… The cost?  about 40 cents for a one-pound loaf!” --Woman’s Day Magazine

About the Author

Jeff Hertzberg, M.D., and Zoë François; Photography by Mark Luinenburg

The authors met in their children’s music class in 2003 and wrote the best-selling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day

Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. grew up eating New York pizza and spent years trying to figure out how to make dough that was convenient enough to use for daily pizza, flatbreads, and loaves.  But really, he just wanted to learn to throw pizza dough high into the air.  He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters.

Zoë François is a pastry chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America, but she is a pizzaiola at heart. While writing this book she traveled far and wide to eat every pizza and flatbread she could find.  In addition to tossing pizzas she creates desserts on her pastry blog zoebakes.com.  She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two sons.

The authors answer questions on pizza, flatbread, and all things bread at PizzaIn5.com.
