About Italian Pizza Secrets

History of this initiative

Hello, I am Stefano, owner of I am very close to italian food traditions and history as I was born in a family that always dedicated a lot of time at cooking healthy and high quality food. Since I was child I was attracted by preparing all kind of dishes from the South Italy traditions but in particular I always loved the dough! I was following my Grandmother first and my mum then in all their preparations especially for Pizza. After several years of experience in making pizza at home I started to approach the topic in a more scientific way studying books and concentrating on making reproduceable results while making Pizza in a professional way. In this blog I am sharing my approach and my knowedge around making Italian pizza.

Why this website?

Let’s be honest with what happens very often (it happened to me several times in the past):

  • You spent a lot of your precious time and efforts in finding on the Web a recipe for Pizza.
  • You followed video tutorial to prepare Pizza dough and you are very enthusiast to practice what you just learnt.
  • You decide to amaze your guests with your new recipe for italian Pizza and you start baking following instruction from the tutorial on how to make Pizza.
Wouldn’t be a shame if all of the above concludes with a failure? Too much water in flours or poor management of pizza hydration, pizza dough does not rise as expected, you can’t put correctly the dough in the baking tin or pan…. and you name all the errors that can happen!
