About the Book
Pizza - - who doesn’t love a good slice? What if you could have the pizza combination of your dreams any time in your own kitchen? A new cookbook allows readers to do just that! REVOLUTIONARY PIZZA [Page Street Publishing, July 2014, $19.99 US], by Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau, owner of Chicago's popular specialty pizza shop, Dimo's Pizza, shares his mouthwatering pizza recipes for meat-lovers and vegans alike.
“REVOLUTIONARY PIZZA is more of a look into how we approach our craft,” says author Syrkin-Nikolau.“Our mantra: pizza is the food of the people. It’s accessible. It’s cheap. And most of all, it’s comforting. We see pizza crust as our canvas for creating and re-creating our favorite meals in new and unthinkable ways. And maybe we’re gluttons for groupies, but we love the satisfaction of causing a memorable reaction. Selling pizzas with French fries and macaroni noodles, we’ve learned that pizza is kind of a big deal. Over the years, we’ve come to define a few specific reactions that remind us why we do what we do.”
With chapters on the classics, appetizers, street eats, dessert pies, and tips and tricks this cookbook has everything one needs to master homemade pizza including the creative combinations that made Dimo's Pizza a Chicago cult favorite. Recipes include:

  • BBQ Steak & Fries
  • Chicken n' Waffles
  • Finger Lickin' Chicken Finger

My Take on the Book
This is a great book that will make your mouth water! The pizza in this book is so unique and combines so many toppings that I probably would have never thought of. I was very impressed with the details and the thoroughness of the book itself, and while I have only tried out one of the recipes thus far there are far more I want to try. Not all of the pizzas in the book are ones my daughters seemed to keen about, but there were ones where their eyes lit up and they specifically mentioned...I want to try THAT! If you love pizza and love trying new things on your pizza, this book is an amazing resource and will keep your taste buds tingling for a long time to come!
