Pizza: A Global History is a fascinating look at the history of pizza from its Italian origins to its "Americanization" to current worldwide trends in pizza. The book is slim, but very informative and it also includes recipes.

It's part of The Edible Series. Other already-released titles include "Hamburger" and "Pancake." Forthcoming titles include Beer, Hot Dog, Chocolate, Cake, and Pie, just to name a few.

I would recommend Pizza: A Global History to anyone who likes to read about food or who likes to read books on a quirky topic. A reader is treated to a lot of interesting information in a compact format. ( )
