Yesterday, I picked up a copy of the new pizza book A Passion for Pizza: A Journey Through Thick and Thin to find the Pizza Elite:
I'm curious to hear other people's thoughts. It was a quick read. I was able to go through it in a little under 2 hours.
The first few parts of the book were a survey of the best pizzerias in the US and Italy. The last part of the book consisted of a few dozen pizza recipes.
I loved that the author's included Sam's Pizza in Brooklyn and thought the first part of the book was great.
I'm lukewarm on the recipes part of the book. When I saw the list of pizzas in the table of contents, my eyes lit up. However, the recipes are much more focused on the toppings than the dough.
