Lots of narrative at the beginning, then tons of recipes. Ironically after going through this book I think I'll stick to my standard Joy of Cooking pizza dough recipe. ( )

I love this book, though be warned - it's not exactly a regular cookbook. The first half is a bit of a travelogue and personal journey as Peter seeks out different types of pizza around the world, trying to capture some of the flavours of his youth and of the history of pizza. The second half consists of recipes which recreate the various pizzas he was impressed with in his travels.

I really liked this mix; it provides a context to his abiding interest in pizza and also provides a useful perspective - there's no one perfect pizza as there are so many different and good variations out there. Peter has excellent taste, and makes a great tour guide. ( )

Not only a fantastic cookbook, but a great read, as well. Everything the home pizza cook needs for an amazing pie. ( )
