When I was growing up, my father used to say...
"I don't like the fancy Italian restaurants, I want the Italian restaurants that use red and white tablecloths".
We love them too!

100% Polyester. Machine wash. No ironing needed. We use this at home and it's really a good quality tablecloth.

Perfect accompaniment for the Tabletop Italian Flags
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.
Simply cut a 3-inch circle of dough, wrap it around a tube and drop it in the oil. Once cooled, the tube is removed to add filling.
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!
Recipe for dough and filling included. Wanna see something cute? Natalia made a vlog about us making cannoli here's Natalia's video she made of us making Cannoli together.

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!
Frankie G family recipe included! Hand-wash only. Air dry completely before storing in a cool dry place.
Simply place this ricer over any bowl or pot, squeeze the gadget's handles and the potatoes ooze right through the holes in the canister.
Stainless steel construction, 3.5" x 10.5" x 3.75" and it holds 2.5 C. This item is dishwasher safe, however we recommend hand washing in order to extend the life and beauty of the item.
A great classic pasta tool. Traditionally this is used to cut pasta or dough for filled pastries and latticework pie tops and creates the traditional ZigZag design to the edges of Ravioli.
Also known as a "jagger" to English bakers, it can also be used to cut cracker dough into squares with a pretty fluted edge.

Frankie's Favorite! The crushed version of these peppers is perfect for sauces, and spreading on the base of a pizza, sandwiches, and wonderful as a dollop on a bowl of pasta.

These 100% cotton, reusable baguette bags are convenient and eco-friendly. What better way to store your freshly baked or purchased artisan bread, without adding to unnecessary waste for the environment. We just found these great bags and couldn't wait to make them available to you.
Each bag has blue and red print on 100% cotton canvas and measures 27x6.5 inches
Each bag has black print on 100% cotton canvas and measures 27x6.5 inches
Finding these bread bags, to offer here at fgpizza is very exciting for us. The size of bag, will hold two small, oblong country loaves or one large Rustic Italian Country loaf. You could also store small focaccia, rolls and several small loaves.
Since bread made with a natural starter should not be stored in plastic air-tight containers, this bag is perfect and preserves the crust that you worked so hard to create.
We started using these bags right away, when we found them. They are keeping the crust longer, which makes the bread lover very happy.
Each bag has red and blue print and measure 16.75x12 inches. They are made with 100% cotton and the bag is closed with a cotton drawstring

These plates are not just for decoration! They are meant to serve piping hot pizza where one can enjoy Naples' classic on a high-quality porcelain plate.

"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!
Our blown-glass "boot of Italy" ornament cleverly captures the shape and flag of the beautiful homeland in shimmering colors.
Measuring 4.5" x 2.25", this meticulously crafted ornament displays the flag colors and name "Italy" on the front, and "Buon Natale" meaning "Merry Christmas" on the back (see picture below). A beauty for Italians and all those who love Italy.
These sturdy proofing baskets are made from wood pulp and has inner ridges that will promote the traditional rings of flour on your baked loaf.
While some prefer the traditional woven cane baskets, there are those that swear by the performance of these pulp baskets, and state that the dough releases easier from these than the cane.
