Nancy Silverton takes center stage with one of her latest obsessions: focaccia. Silverton is the founder of La Brea Bakery and chef and owner at Mozza. She is the author of several cookbooks, including "Mozza Cookbook," which will be published in September. We've all been there. You're in a foreign country, or a favorite restaurant here in town, eating something that you just love and wondering, maybe even worrying, "How will I ever make this at home?" That's exactly what happened to me a few summers ago, on a trip to Matera, in southern Italy, when I tasted the area's signature tomato-and-roasted-pepper-topped focaccia.
This is Nancy Sliverton’s recipe for Focaccia that was in Los Angeles Time with a video. http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-masterclass-20110526,0,1188913.htmlstory and more pictures http://www.latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-nancy-silverton-focaccia-pictures,0,7752206.photogallery

If anyone is interested, this was my first attempt on a Nancy Silverton's focaccia.
There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
