GENUINE PIZZA: Better Pizza at Home
by Michael Schwartz (Abrams Books, May 14, 2019)

James Beard award-winning chef Michael Schwartz known for defining what fresh, local food means in Miami now shares the building blocks to making unforgettable pizza at home!

The wood oven has always been a focal point of the open kitchen at Michael’s Genuine, and it’s no surprise pizza has found a special place in our hearth getting cozy with whole fish and fresh vegetables. Michael’s love for a genuine pie spawned a bunch of warm and welcoming joints where it’s the star, too — Harry’s Pizzeria. Now, the home cook can make and eat better pizza at home, getting comfortable creating balanced, delicious meals centered around everyone’s favorite food.

“Genuine Pizza is my approach as an American chef who puts quality and simplicity first. Pizza has always been an important part of all my restaurants. It’s an opportunity for expression and I want the home cook to feel like they now have a great resource that they can turn to and enjoy using.”
