"Anyone can claim to be a food writer. But no one puts in the work and sweat equity like Steve Dolinsky. He's a gumshoe, historian, and friendly guide in The Ultimate Chicago Pizza Guide, the definitive mic-drop book on Chicago's most famous and infamous culinary export." --Kevin Pang of America's Test Kitchen

" . . .a meticulous examination of the exemplars of nine pizza styles found within the city limits." --Mike Sula, Chicago Reader

"Steve Dolinsky dove deep inside the Chicago pizza scene and subculture to research the rich history and recent trends of the world's most favorite food, pizza. The photographs capture the pure essence of Chicago pizza. Each page tantalizes you with mouthwatering recipes and backstories that make you wish you were born a Chicagoan." --Tony Gemignani, thirteen-time World Pizza Champion
