Great book for pizza fanatics,
This review is from: American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza (Hardcover)
This book has a really nice feel about it. You really get the sense the auther REALLY loves pizza.
The first part is the story of his jornery finding the best pizza in italy and america. As a brit I have to say I found the italian section really interesting but lost intrest soon after he starts his search in america which is two thirds of the first part. But that is just me I would rather know about true Italian pizza that which pizza shop in new york does the best pizza.
The second half of the book goes into great detail about making dough and has about 8 (off the top of my head)diffrent recipes. One thing I did find is he talks about a neo-neoplian pizza which you have to read the first part of the book to know what he is talking about. He also describes several different sauces, toppings and types of pizza
Having said all this I love the book and have really enjoyed going through all the diffrent dough recipes to find my perfect pizza.
