Everyone loves pizza, right? Saver of parties, empty fridges and hangovers the world over - pizza has come to the rescue of the human race more times than is worth counting. So, if you can't imagine your world without dough, cheese and tomato, then this is the book for you.
All things pizza are here - from its history and family tree, to world famous pizzerias and even an exploration into the pizza variants we love to hate (hamburger crust pizza anyone?). The Pizza Pilgrims, Thom and James Elliot, have spent years researching the best pizza that the world has to offer, and producing their own pizzas across 16 restaurants in the UK (and counting).
Alongside pizza maps of their favourite global pizza cities (so you can conduct your very own pizza pilgrimage) the book is also packed with over 30 recipes to make sure you finally delete your local takeaway from speed dial #1. From an NY slice, to true Neapolitan pizza made in a frying pan, Pizzaoffers classic and new creations, including guest chefs' signature takes, and the Pilgrims' very own Nutella pizza ring!
Oven fresh and packed with interviews, pizza facts, movie scenes, world records and even pizza tattoos, Pizza is illustrated with all manner of pie-based fun and written with a hearty dose of humour. The perfect companion for the pizza lover in your life. Fact.
About the Authors
Brothers Thom and James Elliot ditched their jobs in 2012 to go on a life-changing pilgrimage to Naples, the home of pizza, to learn how it's done from the source. Back in the UK, they set up a market stall in Soho selling pizza from the back of their trusty Ape van. Pizza Pilgrims now run 16 pizzerias (and counting) in London and the southeast of the UK.
