With liberty and pizza for all. There’s no doubt that pizza is one of the most popular foods in the United States, cherished by everyone from your average family guy to the Leader of the free world. Americans reportedly eat a combined 350 slices every second!
Pizza journalist Liz Barrett explores how it is that pizza came to and conquered North America and how it evolved into different forms across the continent. Each chapter investigates a different pie, the components of each, and much more. Recipes provide readers with the opportunity to make and sample the pies themselves.
