I learned some new things and was intrigued by how pizza differs from state to state. The history of each pizza place was particularly interesting. The author pretty much stuck with very successful, large chains and I would have preferred if he had included some smaller operations. Also, while he insists his recipes are easy, he starts off requiring [...]

    2. Disclaimer: I haven't cooked anything out of this book. But, it was really interesting and fun to read about all the different kinds of crust and pizza and toppings from all over the country. This book is definitely well-researched and would be a great resource for anybody who really loves to cook pizza. I copied down a few recipes to try before I returned the book to the library.

    3. Pizza recipes for almost all the states (none for 6 states, more than 1 for 12 states). Wide variety of crust types and topping. Some sound delicious, some are not so appealing, but colour photos of all look very appealing.

    4. Several good recipes, though several areas seemed predominant. Been to Sven and Ollies, and the pizza is truly good. I plan on adapting a few recipes in the future.
