Cookbook Giveaway: My Pizza

Make classic Boscaiola Pie with Jim Lahey's no-knead crust, topped with sausage, mushrooms and red onions.

Besides doughnuts, pizza is my all-time favorite food. When I got Jim Lahey’s cookbook My Pizza, my husband and I were inspired to make homemade pizza the next night – and again the week after – because this is simply the best pizza you can make at home.

As pizza connoisseurs know, the secret to great pizza is amazing crust – flavorful with good chew, crisp in some places, charred in others. It’s no surprise that Jim, famous for his simple no-knead bread method (detailed in his first book, My Bread) and founder of New York City’s Sullivan Street Bakery and pizza restaurant Co., knows how to make fabulous crust. The no-knead method takes minimal effort and allows flavor to develop slowly as the dough rests. It’s pure genius. And once you’ve mastered the crust, Jim’s creative, fresh toppings are just icing on the cake (or pie, in this case).

Try a couple pizzas from My Pizza today:

  • Bird’s Nest Pie – I couldn’t resist trying this unusual springtime pizza. It doesn’t use any sauce, but you’ll never miss it with the base layer of cheese topped with shaved asparagus and eggs, all melding together beautifully. The recipe calls for quail eggs, but Jim notes you can use regular chicken eggs, preferably small.
  • Boscaiola Pie – This classic pizza is topped with tomato sauce along with sausage, mushrooms and red onion.
  • Ham and Peas Pie – Jim was inspired by a common Italian pasta sauce to make this pizza. It’s topped with a creamy béchamel sauce along with prosciutto, peas and fresh mint.

Use fresh spring asparagus to make this unusual Bird's Nest Pie.
