I'm not a pizzeria owner or a book reviewer, just a guy who loves pizza. It seems like there are a lot of books about pizza out there these days, but this one covers more ground and is more entertaining than the others. There's no New York snobbery going on here - just a clear-eyed, authoritative approach to all styles. This book gives equal time to Chicago, New Haven, California, NYC, and all the others.

And the photos make me hungry.

It's strong on the history of famous indies and pizza chains, and the recipes look good - and they throw in a lot of fun blurbs here and there to keep things moving along ("best pizza moments in movies," "ten great pizzeria names," even a funny sidebar on "Seinfeld"'s apparent obsession with pizza).

There's a top ten list of the best pizzerias in the country, and I can't say I totally agree - where's Zachary's in Oakland? - but I guess that's the point of these things. Besides, the directory of 500+ great pizzerias has all of my favorite local (and national) places.

If you buy one pizza book, make this the one.

I gave this wonderful book as a gift for the holidays, and plan on giving it for housewarming and birthday gifts in the future. It is a fun read, and a sure crowd pleaser. Everyone can find something in this book to like - the recipes for someone who loves to cook, the pizza restaurant listings for your favorite traveler (there is a restaurant in every state!), and the history of pizza for the non-fiction readers. It has wonderful photographs and illustrations, and will make you want to order pizza for dinner.

From the front cover to the back, this book is a must-read for anyone and everyone who loves pizza - and who doesn't (except the father of one of the authors)? It's a part coffee-table, part history, part trivia, part recipe book, all neatly compiled with excellent photography to boot. The authors really did their homework from around the country (as you will see if you refer to their recommended independent pizza parlors towards the back of the book - another added plus). Being from the midwest, the history of the chain pizza restaurants and frozen pizza (like Joe Pep's original Tombstone pizza which is probably still the best there ever was) were both particularly interesting to me. No real bias in here, though - the authors lay claim that all pizzas have their place in American culture, like different types of music or ice cream. And low and behold, one of the authors used to deliver Pyramid Pizza in Lawrence, KS as a grad student, one of my many favorite varieties of Italian pie! Whether you only kind of like pizza, or you really love it, this book will be of interest to you and anyone else who picks it up from your coffee table. Now, I can't wait to try some of the recipes included in here, as well!

This book is a cross between a history book and recipe book. Although it doesn't have that many recipes it is very interesting, all the recipes are tasty and the pictures in this book are great. There is also a restaurant guide in the back.

I've been making pizza occasionally for dinner for a few years, but wanted a change or some new ideas. I bought this book and at first was discourged by how much of the book was taken up by history, facts, personal experiences, etc; however, being a person that loves pizza read every word in one sitting. Very interesting! I made 6 pizzas using the pepperoni crust recipe in the book last night and had 10 people over, everyone was impressed with the texture and taste of the crust. We didn't have any left overs! It's a great buy!
