The Little Red Hen (Makes a Pizza)

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"This retelling of The Little Red Hen exudes charm, thanks to conversational narration and delightful cut paper images," wrote PW in a starred review. Ages 3-7.Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3-A funky rendition of the classic tale. Hen, having decided to make a pizza, discovers that she lacks certain necessities, such as a proper pan. "`Cluck,' she said. `I need a pizza pan.'" When she asks her neighbors to help her out, she gets the expected response: "Not I," said the duck donning her swim cap and tube. "Not I," said the dog wearing a box of dog biscuits and a party hat. "Not I," said the hep blue cat playing the saxophone. So off the Little Red Hen goes to the store to buy the things she needs-along with others...


A Pizza the Size of the Sun
Jack Prelutsky
0688132359
Sept 1996
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Poetry's bad boys are back again, teaming up to take another swipe at stuffiness. Prelutsky's predilection for playfulness percolates throughout this collection of slyly subversive rhymes, and he couldn't ask for a better partner in crime than Stevenson, whose droll, minimalist sketches so enlivened the duo's previous escapades (The New Kid on the Block; Something BIG Has Been Here). Once again Prelutsky demonstrates a robust appreciation of the absurd?and an uncanny knack for turning every possible subject on its head. Here his verse ranges from the short and sweet ("My mother makes me chicken,/ her chicken makes me cough./ I wish that when she made it,/ she took the feathers off") to poems of Jabberwockian silliness (the entry that begins " 'I'm ceiling fad!' a money boned./ 'Alas!' a carrot pride" is just one...


Pete's a Pizza

0062051571


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Mr. Steig (The Toy Brother) introduces a game guaranteed to produce a good mood. On a rainy day, title character Pete flops down on the couch in an attitude of despair. His father notices, and "he thinks it might cheer Pete up to be made into a pizza." Pete allows himself to be carried into the kitchen, where he is kneaded and tossed like dough. "Next, some oil is generously applied. (It's really water.)... And then some tomatoes. (They're really checkers.)" Pizza-Pete bakes on the couch, (a.k.a. the pizza oven), but when it's time to cut slices (with a karate-chop gesture), "the pizza runs away and the pizza-maker chases him." Steig evidently has played pizza before. He substitutes talcum powder for flour and paper scraps for mozzarella; he notes that pizzas struggle when tickled. The text resembles a set of...

American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza
Peter Reinhart
1580084222
November 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Baking bread is mysterious enough. But creating truly great pizza--the transformation of next to nothing into something extraordinary--is downright alchemical. It is for no small reason that there are distinct words in Italian for those disciples of these mystic arts who bake pizza and focaccia, pizzaiolo and focacciaiolo. Peter Reinhart, he who gave us Brother Juniper's Bread Book and the multi-award winning The Bread Baker's Apprentice, takes the reader of American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza right into the heart of the matter.

Reinhart begins his inquiry into pizza with his baseline palate memory for what a great pizza should be. As a teenager he had worked in a pizzeria, Mama's, and instinctively knew this pie to be the best. Returning as an adult years later, he discovered otherwise. Had he changed, or had...

Times Leader Newspaper, November 24, 1991
Creative engineer shares his pizza-making secrets: A young man who grew up in a pizza-loving corner of Northeastern Pennsylvania has written a book about the art (and science) of creating his favorite food. The 27-year old Plains native is an engineer, which probably accounts for the scientific approach he has taken to make chewy, flavorful, mouth-watering pizza.

Book Description

Pizza

Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Having consumed 1,000 slices of pizza in one year, across 20 states, Canada and Italy, Levine certainly possesses a firsthand, encyclopedic knowledge of the dish. But in his attempt to create "the ultimate guide and companion," he has constructed an unwieldy book with too many toppings. It is at once an anthology of reprinted essays and articles, a collection of celebrity mini-memoirs, a history of pizza both ancient and modern, and a collection of capsule reviews of dozens of pizza purveyors (including classic pizzerias, larger chains and staples of the frozen-food aisle). For the essays, Levine (New York Eats) raids the stables of the New York Times and Condé Nast on the East Coast, and culls from various Pacific coast journalists in the West. Highlights include an amusing piece by Jeffrey Steingarten on...


Princess and the Pizza

From Publishers Weekly
The latest of Mary Jane Auch's (Bantam of the Opera) fairy-tale parodies finds Paulina the Princess competing against her peers for the hand of Prince Drupert, the sorry-looking son of overbearing Queen Zelda. Paulina knows the old pea-in-the-mattress trick ("That's so once-upon-a-time," she scoffs to herself) and is unintimidated by the other two finalists, a princess with a very long braid and another princess accompanied by seven little men. But the kitchen assignment comes close to defeating her until, in despair, she whips up a mess of tomatoes, cheese and garlic on some bread dough, wowing Queen Zelda. In a gratifying final twist, Paulina rejects the prince and opens her own successful business a pizza parlor, of course. Readers will delight in the sly references to other fairy tales and in the goofy...

Pizza That We Made

Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-These very basic readers contain simple stories, repetition and rhyme, and colorfully illustrated pages. Big, Big Wall is a retelling of "Humpty Dumpty." Though the mouse and bunny are too small to keep him from cracking, a perky pig comes to the rescue, and the three friends cushion the egg as he tumbles into a flower bed. Dewey and Aruego's art lends whimsical good cheer to this familiar tale with a new twist. The second book is not quite as successful. Jack, a cat, and Sam, a mouse, meet in the first vignette and pronounce their friendship in the second, but the final story wanders into Sam's feelings of being big, little, sad, and, finally, happy on the last page when he and Jack are together. Bowers's illustrations are bold and cheerful. Beginning readers will enjoy their success as they read...

From Booklist
High-spirited, egalitarian, and eclectic describe aspects of the California Pizza Kitchen style. In addition to the melange of distinctive ingredients one finds on this restaurant chain's pizza menus, other appealing victuals are featured. The newest effort by restaurateurs Flax and Rosenfield presents adventurous ways of preparing popular ethnic foods, such as spring rolls that meld teriyaki chicken with tortillas and Thai satay sauce. Spaghetti is transformed by a dousing of Kung Pao sauce for a spicy twist on an Italian theme. Creative appetizers, pastas, salads, soups, and sandwiches are accompanied by a handful of delectable desserts. Employees of the restaurant chain contribute commentary here and there to enhance this, the California Pizza Kitchen's second cookbook. Alice Joyce

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1 Set to the familiar rhythm and cumulative rhyme pattern of "This Is the House That Jack Built," this beginning reader describes the sloppy cheese, spicy sausages, gloppy sauce, and floppy dough that are cooked into a pizza and enjoyed by dozens of mice, much to the cook's great disappointment. However, in order to make the rhyme work, the pizza is cooked in a "tray" rather than a pan, and the sausages are described as "choppy." Also, some of the words are not easy for beginning readers. Still, children will be carried along by the rhythm and the lively, colorful, and somewhat exaggerated illustrations.

Packed as tightly as a cup of brown sugar, this tome on home baking is sure to become a classic reference. Malgieri (Great Italian Desserts, Perfect Pastry) distills years of teaching and experience into these detailed recipes for virtually every savory or sweet yeast bread, quick bread, muffin, pastry, dough and batter. Recipes are thorough and include descriptions of how batters and doughs are supposed to appear at each stage of preparation. "If it still looks a little curdled, that's O.K.," writes Malgieri, depicting the addition of eggs to a rich, cheesy batter for Parmesan bread. "Hold each peeled peach gently in your left hand over a mixing bowl (if you are left handed, reverse)" begins his 93-word description of how to efficiently slice a peach. Such advice, along with other hints for success and some of...
