EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Sprinkling the pizza pan with cornmeal after spraying adds to the crispness of the crust.

Pancetta is a cured pork much like bacon with its layers of pink meat and white fat, but it is dried and not smoked. It often comes in a sausage-like roll and is purchased thinly sliced. It may also be made as a slab, which is usually chopped or diced. If you can't find pancetta, bacon makes a good substitute.
