FIVE of 5 stars!

This is the pizza book to end all pizza books.

I am a great pizza cook and love to entertain friends with pizza parties using both standard favorites and completely original combos. This book has combos I never could have imagined, but be assured there is nothing weird here. Just flat out deliciousness.

It starts out with a plethora of crust recipes, just about anything you can imagine including Keto and cauliflower crusts. I love experimenting with different crusts and this section is inspiring with many original recipes.

The book then continues with an unbelievable number of combos. Basically anything that could be put in/on a pizza, sandwich, pie crust, cracker, you name it, it’s all made into a pizza. Pizzas, Focaccias, calzones and desserts. Along with all the standard favorites as well! But no one needs a book about how to put pepperoni on top of mozzarella with some mushrooms, so this book gives you fantastic ideas that are just as delicious.

Roasted red onion, artichoke and sage on a crispy crust. Caramelized onion, prosciutto and peach pizza. Cilantro pesto, shrimp and feta. Chicken, cranberry and brie on thick crust.

Every recipe sounds delicious, if I were to list my favorites I’d have to list them all.

There is a pizza party section and a kid section, and a long list of sauce recipes as well.

But then we get to the dessert pizzas just to finish you off. Fig, rosemary and blue cheese. Pear, pecorino and walnut. Apple, sultana and cinnamon strudel.

The photos are to die for. It is very difficult to decide which pizza you would want to start with first. But that’s why pizza parties are so awesome, you can invite friends over and try several different pizzas in one evening!

This book gets five strong stars from me, and I’m going to have to buy a couple copies myself. One for myself and a few for my pizza loving friends.

Many thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review, though I am holding them fully responsible for the weight gain that’s about to ensue.
