4 Levels of Pizza: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Jun 24, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of pizza. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which pizza was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/chef-sim-cass-dough-recipe

    8:20 _You know I am a big fan of a lot of color on a pizza_ : yes, charcoal black which is a the right color to lead you quickly towards cancer. That pizza is overcooked and you would have better thrown it away, dear " *chef* "

    Honestly, Stephen’s pizza looks the best. Has some pretty colors, nice shape, and cheese in the crust. Beth’s pizza looks kinda plain (I know that’s how her husband likes it but I need me some toppings) and the shape is in desperate need of help. Sim’s crust is more burnt than my back after spring break.
