Michael Dene Cooks Margherita Pizza
From the #1 Zagat rated pizzeria in the U.S., Michael's Pizzeria owner Michael Dene and expert pizzaiolo Vito Iacopelli teach us how to make the perfect margherita pizza in only 90 seconds. Michael explains what sets his pizza apart from the stiffest competition-- the specialized flour from Naples, Italy. He also talks about the training required to be the best pizza chef and how you can make a delicious pie at home without a designated pizza oven.

Michael suggests that you shop locally and always buy fresh ingredients. Use Double 0 Flour, fresh ingredients, and make your own sauce. Make sure to cook in a hot oven. This is a healthy meal for your family and your children can understand the process of making their own food.

Sophie Uliano
Natural lifestyle expert Sophie Uliano shows us that there is more to Halloween than candy and chocolate. Healthy foods can be just as thematic. To celebrate the holiday, Sophie displays spooky spider deviled eggs, boo nana pops, cheddar witch fingers, and hot dog mummies. Using veggies, she teaches Mark how to connect the arm bone to the shoulder bone and the shoulder bone to the collar bone. This is a fun way to get your kids active in the kitchen and thus spark their interest in eating their skeletal creation.
