Craft Errata: Pizza Czar

Your edition of this book may contain an error in one of its recipes:
Thin & Crispy Dough
Page 78

In the ingredient list, the quantity for extra-virgin olive oil should be given as 80 grams (8 tablespoons or ½ cup), not 80 grams (5¾ cups).

Additionally, to make the dough recipes in this book without using a sourdough starter, you can make a commercial yeast pre-ferment instead and use it at the same quantity given for the starter.

To make a commercial yeast pre-ferment, use these ingredients, which also appear in the top-right corner of page 257:

Sourdough Starter Substitute
Pre-ferment ingredients (aka biga, sponge, polish)
70 grams (5 tablespoons) water
0.5 gram (¼ teaspoon) instant yeast
80 grams (½ cup) high-protein or bread flour

 

Garlic, Caramelized Onion, Anchovy, and Breadcrumb Sicilian Pizza
Page 124

The ingredient list is missing: 30 grams (about 1 ounce) garlic, thinly sliced

Step 3 should begin with “Evenly top the pizza with the anchovies and garlic.”

And the following paragraph is missing from the method after step 4: “Bake the pizza in its pan directly on the pizza stone for 15 to 20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has begun to brown.”
