About Pizza City, USA:
Steve Dolinsky had seen one too many “7 Hottest Pizza Places in Town” listicles online, when he decided to take the task upon himself. Rather than rely on dubious, biased pizza reviews, he made it his mission to tackle as many places as he could in the city and suburbs, all while documenting the good, the mediocre and the downright overrated. Over the course of a year, he managed to sample pizzas from 185 locations, whittling it down to his top 101 spots. The research led to two major epiphanies: first of all, Chicago is a “thin” town, since most of the pizzerias in the region specialize in “tavern-style” pizza that’s square-cut, thin and crispy. Second, the reason the Windy City is “Pizza City, USA,” is because there are 10 distinctive styles of pizza, rather than the paltry five they have in New York. In order to prove his point, Steve also tackled 54 places in the New York City region over the course of four months. The book features Steve’s top 5 choices in every major category, separated by city and suburbs.
