4 Levels of Pizza: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

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

  • Man Idk, I've got my own fairly generic recipe that I've mastered. It's similar to Papa John's but with a lot more flavor, and the crust tastes like fluffy/crispy garlic parmesan bread sticks. These 3 pizzas look like oddly shaped crackers with unappetizing portions of tomato sauce, cheese, and odd toppings.

  • The amateur pizza is more circle that the others. How can they be experts or a cook is they can't make a circle.

  • While Level 1 and 2, both amateurs, met my expectations, I am dissapointed by Level 3, who used all these fancy techniques but produced nothing that resembled to a high quality pizza. The layer was too thick, thats not a pizza.
