    High expectations lead to disappointment The aim of the book was to highlight some of the amazing pizza that is found across the US, but then it took a sharp left and became a book about why New York pizza is better than everything else The first half of the book was promising The author described pizza s history, and with the help of a number of contributors, he shared entertaining New York pizza memories The stories were detailed, the visits to and reviews of countless pizzerias were int High expectations lead to disappointment The aim of the book was to highlight some of the amazing pizza that is found across the US, but then it took a sharp left and became a book about why New York pizza is better than everything else The first half of the book was promising The author described pizza s history, and with the help of a number of contributors, he shared entertaining New York pizza memories The stories were detailed, the visits to and reviews of countless pizzerias were interesting But then it was time to move onto other regions New Jersey got a fair shake The section for New Haven started showing signs of fatigue Then came Boston In a brusque four pages, he shares that he visited Boston for merely a single evening visits two college pizzerias that are nowhere near the famed Italian North End visits a chain pizzeria then, gloomily predicts that Boston s share of pizza tradition is in danger His take on Boston pizza was the start of a downhill spiral in which every other city region is lucky to get a 1 page mention At this point, the book has already taken on the feel of Yelp.com , leaving only brief reviews of restaurants Sure there are stories mixed in there, but the care and attention given to the New York sections of the book completely disappears from the second half I would have liked the book a littleif the New York sections were just as blunt and unpolished as the second half of the book But because the New York sections were so cheerful and inviting, it leads me to conclude that either the author got sick of eating so much pizza and merely finished his pizza tour out of obligation, or that he had no intention of highlighting pizza in the US and only wanted a platform to tout New York pizza while slamming everything else Really, even in Chicago he avoids the famed spots for some lesser known places Yet he hit every single famed pizzeria in New York and New Jersey area Such decisions are just a slap in the face to pizza lovers If you need a pizza guide book for New York, then this book will be helpful If you want a guidebook for pizza across the US, then steer clear of this book

    Levine s quest for the perfect pizza is an amusing read, though I disagree with his notion that it s the bread that determines the quality of the pizza It s obvious the sauce isimportant Bread is a rather neutral tasting flavor, and tomato sauce is not You can put a great pizza sauce on Wonder Bread and it will still taste great, but if you put a poor sauce on great bread it will overwhelm the flavor of the bread and ruin the pizza.
