VIDEO: Making Pizza Without Tomatoes

Chef Matt Finarelli was the instructor for a bread making class I took at Culinaerie. Not only did we learn a lot, but we took home a boatload of freshly made bread which I savored for weeks.

Chef Finarelli has a new cookbook out called Beyond the Red Sauce: Classic Italian Cooking Without Tomatoes.  I thought it’d be fun to make a video of him demonstrating a few of his recipes. Here’s the result — a video on making your own pizza dough from scratch, plus three pizza recipes using no tomatoes.

And yes, we devoured all three pizzas after filming. Such hardships…

    This is nice! Never thought to make pizza with squash, but it looks great.
