WTVP Presents Pizza Night with Father Dom!

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011


Warning: You can’t help but get hungry while watching this show!

The pizza is coming out of the parlor as Father Dominic Garramone, bread baker extraordinaire, trades in his loaf pans for a wooden peel to serve up a delicious new special. Pizza Night with Father Dom takes viewers from dough to dinner table with recipes, techniques and culinary insights that prove this family favorite can be so much more than greasy fast food. This new WTVP production premieres Monday, March 7 at 7 p.m.

With Father Dom, making pizza at home is simple and provides an ideal opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends. He encourages his audience to start with the freshest ingredients, a little imagination and a job for everyone.

Traditional pizza with an American-style crust, fresh marinara sauce and lots of mozzarella is, of course, on the menu. But Father Dom pushes beyond the typical to also introduce Italian-style crusts, a variety of sauces, and delicious toppings you never knew were made for pizza. Along the way, he debunks myths, demonstrates tools, and shares a few tips he’s had to learn the hard way—all with his signature charm and love of teaching.

    Recipes include:

  • Philly Cheesesteak Pizza with Provolone
  • Muffaletta Pizza
  • Italian-style Pizza with Spinach Pesto
  • Italian-style Pizza with Asparagus and Mornay sauce


Pizza Night with Father Dom was taped on location in the kitchens of the Culinary Arts Institute at Illinois Central College with prep and cooking support from their chefs in training as well as students from St. Bede’s Academy. The program is directed by WTVP Senior Producer Todd Pilon. The program will encore Saturday, March 12.
