4 Levels of Pizza: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • Published on Jun 24, 2019
  • We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of pizza. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which pizza was the best?
    Check out the professional's recipe here on the ICE blog: www.ice.edu/blog/chef-sim-cass-dough-recipe

    Absolutely nobody:

    To be honest, level 1 looked the best and probably tasted the best too

    • siva chandra
      siva chandra 2 days ago +1

      I agree that level 1 looked and probably tasted the best, but as someone whose favorite pizza varieties include something with no toppings but a buttload of cheese, I can't throw shade at Beth's. I can only shake my head at level 3's cooking, considering the pretentiousness he displayed, the whole complicated process, ingredients wasted, all resulting in a burnt pizza

    The level 3 chefs never seem to want to identify themselves as a “level 3 chef”. Just makes em seem really pretentious, not wanting to go along with the video’s concept because they’re above it or something :/

    ”It’s gonna cost less than 10 dollars”
    Well... then i can buy the most expensive pizza at most of the pizza restaurants😂
    If i want that simple pizza i would pay like 6.90$ in most places. 😂😂😂
    If u really wanna make it cheap u shouldn’t use storebought dough and sauce.
