The team behind “Modernist Cuisine” is taking on pizzas with 6-volume project: “Modernist Pizza”


The team behind the six-volume Modernist Cuisine book series says their next big project will take on the science and art of pizza.  Modernist Pizza will explore and resolve long-held beliefs about how to best create an awesome pie and contain new artwork by Modernist Cuisine founder, coauthor, and photographer Nathan Myhrvold, says an announcement sent to EscapeHatch today.

“Modernist Pizza will span multiple volumes and include both traditional and innovative recipes for pizzas found around the globe. The book, currently in its early stages, will explore topics like the science, history, equipment, techniques, and the people who have made pizza so beloved. Authors Nathan Myhrvold and Francisco Migoya, with the Modernist Cuisine team, are presently at work conducting extensive research and testing long-held pizza-making beliefs; this quest for knowledge has already taken them to cities across the United States, Italy, and beyond. Their goal is to produce the most comprehensive pizza cookbook in the world.

“Pizza is a topic the Modernist Cuisine team began to explore when researching for and writing Modernist Bread. Although Modernist Bread touches on pizza styles like Neapolitan, New York, and Sicilian, the team felt that there was still so much left to discover about pizza. Nathan Myhrvold, founder of The Cooking Lab and lead author of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, Modernist Cuisine at Home, The Photography of Modernist Cuisine, and Modernist Bread, stated, “Despite its ubiquity, there’s still a lot to learn about one of the planet’s most popular foods, and our hope is that Modernist Pizza will deliver the story of pizza as it’s never been told before.”

Modernist Pizza will join sister publications Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking (2011), Modernist Cuisine at Home (2012), The Photography of Modernist Cuisine (2013), and Modernist Bread (2017) and the company’s Las Vegas fine art gallery.

The publication date of Modernist Pizza hasn’t been announced.
