The authors met in their children's music class in 2003 and wrote the best-selling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, and Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Jeff Hertzberg, M.D. grew up eating New York pizza and spent years trying to figure out how to make dough that was convenient enough to use for daily pizza, flatbreads, and loaves. But really, he just wanted to learn to throw pizza dough high into the air. He lives in Minneapolis with his wife and two daughters. Zoe Francois is a pastry chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America, but she is a pizzaiola at heart. While writing this book she traveled far and wide to eat every pizza and flatbread she could find. In addition to tossing pizzas she creates desserts on her pastry blog. She lives in Minneapolis with her husband and two sons.
