My grandmother used a pan just like this one. Nonna Agatha, would make her dough the same day and let the dough rise twice, then the final raise in the pan. She made a Sicilian sfincione which our family calls Civata. Her Civata was made with lots of olive oil, a sauce from crushed tomatoes & green onion, then topped with anchovy, breadcrumbs, Romano cheese, and oregano. Our family still makes it for family gatherings.
We have done lots of experimentation with these pans. We've roasted veggies and meats and made great Focaccia, Sicilian Pizza and Sfincione in them, where the bottom of the crust fries to a toasted golden brown. Just delicious.
It is a beautiful white enameled steel pan, measuring 16 inches long, 12 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The tapered edges of the pan allows one to remove their Focaccia / Sfincione with little effort. The pan can be transferred from the refrigerator directly to the oven, then to the table. The beautiful white, baked-on porcelain finish makes it really easy to clean.
With enough use, the finish may tarnish just as the finest le Creuset enameled cookware.

The best cannoli are those made at home. The best were made by my Aunt Pina, but you can do them just as good with FGpizza's cannoli forms.

Forms are made of Made of stainless steel and measure 5 1/2" long by 7/8" wide. Set of 4 and packaged pretty enough for gift giving!

Using a rolling pin without handles keeps one's hands more involved and closer to the dough. This allows better control on thickness and less probability to "skip" and/or "fold-over" dough, ruining the smooth surface one strives to achieve.
This beech-wood rolling pin is smoothly sanded hardwood and is the ultimate tool for baking and pasta making.
Also works great for those who like to roll their pizza and bread doughs. Since these doughs have more gluten, they can be more elastic than pastry. The thickness of our artisan rolling pin helps you flatten or shape your dough to the thickness you desire.
Measures 19 inches long by 1.75 inches in diameter.
When quality matters, but the Christmas Ravioli Rolling Pin is too big for your kitchen - this is the tool for you!
It's 25" long, with 9 ravioli pockets in each row and 6 rows. That is 54, 1.5-inch sized ravioli pockets for the entire pin.
One of the best features of this solid pin is the space it leaves between each ravioli pocket. The space created assists with a tightly-sealed pasta pocket with enough room between to cut the ravioli with your zig-zag cutter.
Hand-made in America from solid American hard wood. We are very proud of the quality and its superior craftsmanship. To see the quality close up please click HERE
You will be so proud of the ravioli it produces!

We have been searching for this item and ultimately partnered with local craftsmen who makes these Mattarelli exclusively for FG Pizza & Italian. We've collaborated to produce a very high quality replication of the Tuscan pasta tool, and we are very proud. Production is limited to our craftsman's availability. If we are out of stock, please ask to be on our waiting list and we will get you one.
Turned from solid maple to a width of 1 7/8" wide in diameter, the mattarello allows the pastaiolo to "feel" the roll, with enough weight to help roll the pasta to a beautiful, almost translucent, 1/8-inch thick.
The length of each pin is 39 inches long, including a knobbed end for hanging, allowing for the traditional wide roll of pasta. Perfect for rolling out pasta to make into long cuts (fettuccine, tagliatelle, linguine, pappardelle, etc.) and ideal for the large wide roll to make cappellini, tortellini, etc.
Rolling pasta with this pin is not only a tradition, but an art. Egg pasta is made by hand then allowed to rest for 30 minutes to 24 hours (in the refrigerator). The rested pasta is then rolled to a 1/8" thickness by artfully flattening a single layer, and classically overlapping layers for a traditional and functional roll of all layers. The soft-pointed end of our mattarello allows freshly rolled sheets of pasta to easily slide off the pin during rolling, without "catching" and tearing on a "blocked" rough edge.
One should not wash the mattarello with water. It may be wiped with a damp cloth and thoroughly dried before putting away. We suggest hanging the mattarello by its knob to prevent warping. Store in a cool, clean, dry place.
We will be adding a video shortly.

Red Star® Active Dry Yeast is a special culture of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The moisture is removed in such a way that cell viability and leavening power are retained. This results in a granular form of yeast designed to be rehydrated before use.
Red Star® Active Dry Yeast can be used in all yeast-leavened goods with either straight or sponge doughs. It is normally applied in a ratio of 40% to 50% of compressed yeast weight requirements, depending on the sugar content and type of dough. Active dry yeast should be rehydrated with a minimum of 3.5 to 4.0 times its weight in water at 38-43ºC. (100-110ºF.).

Every pasta maker needs a fresh pasta drying rack.
My nonna, used to hang the pasta on anything! Hangers, the closet clothes rod, sticks that get precariously placed throughout the kitchen. The problem is, it can be more work to create a make-shift pasta drying space, in place of just... having the right tool.
Our traditional wooden drying rack is perfect for drying fresh homemade pasta. The wooden rack stands 16.5 inches tall, including a heavy, stable 7/8-inch thick base. The unit is then equipped with 4, 18-inch dowels that slide through the holes in the post, creating 8 arms that are perfectly angled> so they don’t interfere with each other while drying pasta. Even the longest tagliatelle will not touch the counter!
Made of environmentally friendly rubberwood, the unfinished wood is perfect for keeping the pasta strands from sliding off. Easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store, saves time and less mess! Disassembles in seconds for easy storage. To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth.

"Cuts like a hot knife through butter!"
When one uses the right tool for the right job, it makes life a whole lot easier. Well this is the right tool.
This professional pizza cutter is truly high quality. The size is substantial and it makes pizza night fun because clean up is easy.
Those cheap wooden-handle pizza cutters just don't cut it (sorry for the "pun"). They don't last and they're made cheap for "home use". These professional cutters are sturdy and offer a smooth roll as you slice your pie. Furthermore, after a big pizza night... it's nice that these can be thrown right into the dishwasher.
These cutters have a 4" rolling blade and should be the last one that you buy, since the blades can be sharpened and the cutting wheels are replaceable, if needed.
4" Stainless Steel blade, great "thumb-guard" design. If you would like to see it in action, check it out in the Pizza Cutters 101 video located on our FG Instructional Videos page.

Those of you who use bakers percentages, understand that you can duplicate any recipe in any amount, anytime! While figuring out percentages can sharpen your math skills. It is nice when a tool comes along that can assist you with formulas.
"Percentage Weighing" or proportional measuring makes for precise recipes and allows bakers to easily make larger or smaller batches of a given recipe. This has been a long-standing way for bakers to weigh their ingredients in proportion to their main ingredient (flour). This feature is the preferred method for bakers for the simple fact that it eliminates messy math that comes with weighing in teaspoons, cups, etc. - instead you deal with just percentage. Also, measuring this way allows for you to make as little or as much as you want easier.
It works like this: place a mixing bowl on the scale and tare it to zero. Add your flour and note that this is the 100% of the recipe (this is done by simply pressing the percentage key twice.)Next, empty your bowl, replace it on the scale and fill it with the next ingredient to the desired percentage you want. THAT'S IT!
Just complete with the rest of the ingredients and you're done. It's as simple as that. This highly functional digital scale is a MUST-HAVE for any aspiring or professional baker!
The scale has a stainless-steel removable tray, and comes with a removable shield to protect the display and keys from any mess. Check out the video below!
Here are the specs
Color: Silver, Power: 3 AA batteries (included), AC
adapter: (available but not included. $5), Display: Blue Backlit LCD, Tare Feature: Yes, Calibration Feature: Yes, Hold Feature: Yes, Platform Size: 6.8" x 6.8", Scale Size: 9.8" x 8" x 3.8", Weighing Modes: 5 (grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds, pounds & ounces), Capacity: 15lbs!

Here's how it works: Your Wood-fired Oven is hot and you've just made a pizza or two for your guests - to take away the hunger. Now for the main coarse, you roast some veggies, make a salad, and rake some coals forward from the back/side of your oven toward the oven opening. Place your Tuscan Grill on top, and grill your steaks, veggies, bread... anything!
It can be used over a campfire or in your fireplace. The Tuscan Grill has plenty of room for grilling vegetables, meats, fish etc. with 196 square inches of cooking surface.
The grill has a height of 4" with the legs, which can be used directly over hot coals. Without the legs you can lay it on a conventional chrome-plated or enamel pan to produce tack-sharp, well defined grill marks.
Cast iron construction
14" x 14" grill surface, 4" high legs

This is the classic wooden ravioli rolling pin just like the one my grandmother used to use and I still use today. It makes nice small squares of ravioli.
The process goes like this:
Roll out a sheet of dough, spread filling on the right half of the pasta, then fold the left half of the dough over the filling to sandwich the filling between the pasta.
To make ravioli, dust the filled-pasta sheet liberally and roll with rolling pin. THAT'S IT!
Rolling pockets will make ravioli cuts of 1.5" x 1", with 4 rows of 10 ravioli pockets per row. The barrel is 18" long and 2.5" in diameter plus the handles. Total length is 23.5". MADE IN ITALY
