Overview

Celebrates one of our most beloved, ubiquitous, and debate-stirring foods. Pizza is the most popular food in the world, and everywhere in America you can find it. American’s consume 33 billion dollars worth of pizza annually from approximately 63,873 pizzerias. Levine and some of America's best writers and cartoonists set out to answer every cosmic question involving this beloved food: Is Chicago pizza really more of a casserole? What makes New York pizza so good? What and where is the Pizza Belt? Is there such a thing as a good frozen pizza? All these questions and more will be answered by Levine and Calvin Trillin, Ruth Reichl, Roy Blount, Jr., Arthur Schwartz, Mario Batali, Jeffrey Steingarten, and Eric Asimov, among others, who tackle the profound questions and never-ending debates that invariably arise whenever the subject of pizza is brought up in polite company.
