Peter Reinhart’s pizza classic American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza is now available for  for the Kindle. You don’t need a Kindle to read it. This can be read on any computer.

American Pie: is an amazing book  I already own a signed hard copy of the book and I decided I just had to get a Kindle version. This book is such a classic.

American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza covers the gamut of all things pizza from coast to coast. A nod is given to Chicago Deep Dish along with recipes. “New Age” pizzas from the West Coast are also discussed. Reinhart actually uncovers the mystery of Wolfgang Puck’s pizza and California Pizza Kitchen’s secrets. (Some Chefs were understandably, hesitant to be interviewed). He may have gone over the edge by reviewing“sushi pizza”, but it does fit in with the spirit of the book

American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza is for anyone who has ever sampled pizza as well as those who posses a passion for pizza. The journey alone will suffice for some pizza aficionados and is worth the price of admission. Add to that, Reinhart’s years of expertise in baking breads of all kinds, and you have a volume that is unmatched in scope. Buy it, read it and make your own perfect pizza!”
