Follow the History Channel's Food Tech host Bobby Bognar in the "Pizza" episode as he deconstructs the components that go into making pies. From a glimpse into commercial dough making at the Domino's factory, a visit to a California desert basil farm that uses geothermal wells to maintain a happy growing temp, a look at making mozzarella at the Nabisco plant in South Dakota, visiting a third generation family salumeria in St. Louis, learning the ins and out of mushroom farming in Pennsylvania, making olives edible at a plant in California, and getting a behind-the-scenes lesson on oven manufacturing at Marsal in Long Island, the episode covers a lot of ground about what goes into making some of the best stuff on earth.

The show originally aired in March 25, 2010. If you missed it, you can catch it tonight at 6pm EST on the History Channel or you can watch the full episode online at history.com.
