This is a new book about pizza by a leading expert. Learn about the Neapolitan origins of pizza, its recent rise to prominence, some regional variations (Rome, Puglia, Veneto) and pizza around the world. A part of Unesco’s world heritage, pizza has evolved significantly in recent years; it can be found in countless original variations while remaining a popular, universal dish. As well as telling the story of pizza as food, Pignataro also tells the stories of places that share a bond with pizza (Tramonti, the town of pizza makers; Gragnano and pizza by the metre). The last part of the book deals with the more technical aspects: ingredients, baking tips, wine and beer pairings and more, stressing the prominent status achieved by pizza.
