This recipe is from Jim Lahey, the owner of Sullivan Street Bakery and Co. Pizza in NYC. In addition to the success he enjoys as a baker and restaurateur, Jim became an internet sensation a few years back when his "no knead" bread recipe tore through food blogs like a wild-fire. Those of you who have been with us a while may recall our experience with his awesome homemade loaf which has become my go-to scratch bread recipe.
Well….Jim has taken his no-knead approach to bread and applied it to the realm of make-at-home pizza, and has recently released a cookbook with all the gory details entitled My Pizza: The Easy No-Knead Way to Make Spectacular Pizza at Home . With so many great pie recipes in the book I struggled for a bit to decide which to try first, and ultimately chose the one shown on the cover of the cookbook, his Ham and Peas pizza. I figure that if it's good enough for the cover, it's good enough for me!
