Gwyneth Learns How to Make
the Best Sourdough Pizza

GP said it best: “Pizza is the greatest food of all time.” When David Nayfeld—chef and co-owner of San Francisco’s Che Fico—visited GP, they turned his signature sourdough into two different pies with incredibly flavorful crusts. We took down the recipes for the simple margherita pizza and Brussels sprouts, pancetta, and ricotta combo—you’ll want to eat both after watching GP and Nayfeld make them in the kitchen. And for those who want to go all out: We added Nayfeld’s recipe for making his dough from scratch.

The Pizza Recipes

  • Che Fico Pizza Dough

    This is some real-deal dough. GP loved this pizza so much, she asked Che Fico chef and co-owner David Nayfeld to come to LA and show us how it’s done.


  • Margherita Pizza

    The secret to this pie is its simplicity, so go for really great-quality ingredients.


  • Brussels Sprouts, Pancetta, and Ricotta Pizza

    Che Fico’s take on a white pie is less heavy than most. The cheeses and pancetta provide richness, which is nicely balanced by the savory cruciferous Brussels sprouts, and the bright lemon juice at the end really wakes up your palate.
