Everyone loves pizza, right? Saver of parties, empty fridges and hangovers the world over - pizza has come to the rescue of the human race more times than is worth counting. So, if you can't imagine your world without dough, cheese and tomato, then this is the book for you.

Alongside pizza maps of their favourite global pizza cities (so you can conduct your very own pizza pilgrimage) the book is also packed with over 30 recipes to make sure you finally delete your local takeaway from speed dial #1. From an NY slice, to true Neapolitan pizza made in a frying pan, Pizza offers classic and new creations, including guest chefs' collabs, and the Pilgrims' very own Nutella pizza ring! Oven fresh and packed with interviews, pizza facts, movie scenes, world records and even pizza tattoos, Pizza is illustrated with all manner of pie-based fun and written with a hearty dose of humour.
