Ever think you might want to hear about pizza being made with Amaretto, cookies, or fruits? If so, get this book, it's pretty good.

This is a wonderful book for anyone who wants to make great pizza at home. The recipes are easy to follow & use ingredients found in any store. The book is in b/w with no pictures.
The book starts out with a brief history of pizza and gives an overview of all the ingredients in the pizzas. The section on dough lists all the ingredients involved & what they do. Troubleshooting information is also included.
There are recipes for 9 different doughs, 5 different sauces & a few oils. Many styles of pizza are then given including Mediterranean, Italian, American & dessert. I really loved the spinach stuffed & deep dish pizzas.
The breakfast pizza is a great change when you get sick of eating cereal & the sweet ricotta pie with espresso syrup is a must for any coffee lover. A list of good pizza places to eat both in the US & other countries is a nice bonus.

As a recently misplaced Chicagoan, pizza has always been a main staple in my family and I must say that this book falls VERY short of the mark when compared to Mr. Bruno's other book on pizza: The Great Chicago-Style Pizza Cookbook. It is a nice addition for those who enjoy collecting cookbooks and does have a few good pointers, but if a person wishes to make REAL pizza, he/she should get the other book and follow Mr. Bruno's recipes and suggestions to the letter at first. I also think Mr. Bruno could have been more honest in the appendix about pizza places in Chicago. His list is old and needs to be updated; a person following his recommendations would be disappointed in their Chicago pizza experience. O'Fame and Gino's East are GREAT, but he knows as well as anyone that NOBODY from Chicago who isn't driving his parent's car has gone to Uno's since the Carter administration. Uno's and Due's have become the Chi-Chi's of pizzas. The other places he lists are OK at best. There are some fantastic pizza parlors around the area that he undoubtedly knows about and should mentioned. But then again, maybe he's like me and doesn't include his favorite place so it remains a quiet, neighborhood joint where only the most initiated pizza-hunter ventures.

As an avid collector of cookbooks, and a gourmet cook, I struck gold when I picked up this book (sorry, I did not buy it from Amazon). However, your shopper should know that this is THE only pizza cookbook you will ever need to buy. Pasquale Bruno really knows his pizza, and his style is a good read as well.

thanks.

Covers a wide spectrum May 23 2002

Great book without the hype Dec 11 2012
By Ihaveanopinion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book because it is very clear. I like how it tackles each component of the pizza: The dough, the Sauce, the cheese.... All done in very simple terms that I can easily duplicate at home. Then you get a little history and some awesome recipes from the classics to creative fare. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because I would love to see a second edition with color photos. I have several pizza cookbooks and this is the one that has become my go-to. Greta you will love it.
