Food Guy Greg Patent writes: "I’ve been pizza crazy lately, and I want to share with you a terrific, authentic recipe for Neapolitan Pizza dough, created by Johnny (Gianni) Di Francesco. I happened across a YouTube video of him, and he has so much to say and demonstrate, you just must have a look. But before we do, I want to tell you about this terrific pizza dough."

"There's something that goes on with refrigeration and pizza dough," observes Jon Jackson, one of the Food Guys. Other Food Guy Greg Patent agrees and gives this phenomenon a name: it's cold fermentation, and you can take advantage of it when you make pizza dough or sourdough bread. After you've kneaded the dough, stash it in the fridge to give it additional time to ferment.

The Food Guys have a yen for pizza and pizza-making accessories: pizza stones, pizza peels, and the pièce de résistance: an outdoor portable wood-fired pizza oven. They're fans of baking Italian thin-crust, lightly-topped pizza outdoors in summer, when an oven, fired up to 750 degrees F, can cook an entire pizza in ninety seconds. (Or so claims Greg Patent.)
