Publishers Text

Pizza is the single most popular food in the world, and wherever you go in America you can always find it. In fact we consume 33 billion dollars worth of pizza annually from the 63,873 pizzerias in America. That's a lot of slices.


This year's pizza centennial is a milestone laid claim to by a Lombardi's Pizza, which opened its doors in New York in 1905. Celebrating this anniversary is Ed Levine's A Slice of Heaven: The Ultimate Pizza Guide and Companion, in which 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 Is the pizza in New Haven better than anything found in Naples Is the best pizzeria in the world found in Phoenix, Arizona What and where is the pizza belt How good can homemade pizza be Why was Nora Ephron perified that her very first date would take herto a pizzeria How did someone named Fats Goldberg end up being New York's pre-eminent thick-crust pizza maker Is there an American pizza aesthetic How does one go about judging pizza Is there such a thing as a good frozen pizza


All these questions and more will be answered in A Slice of Heaven by Levine, along with some of his favorite writers, including, among others, Calvin Trillin, Ruth Reichl, Roy Blount, Jr., Arthur Schwartz, Mario Batali, Jeffrey Steingarten, and Eric Asimov. A Slice of Heaven tackles the profound questions and never-ending debates that invariably come up whenever the subject of pizza is brought up in polite company.
