What is it that separates good pizza from great pizza? Find out as you journey into the heart of this popular food with Peter Reinhart, a world-class expert on artisan bread baking and pizza making. In this seven-part series, we travel the California coast — stopping in Colorado — in the pursuit of perfect pizza and the fascinating people who make it. Each episode centers on artisan techniques and recipes, from the traditional Italian to gourmet spins using local ingredients, and explores the powerful emotions that pizza gives rise to (pun intended).
Peter and his team visit the Cass House in Cayucos, California, where they meet talented local chef Jensen Lorenzen and his wife, Grace. Peter joins Jensen in creating new coastal-inspired pizzas in his wood-fired oven. And they can't resist the area's best fish tacos and smoked fish, which they use to build a smoked fish pizza.
