Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau, owner of Chicago’s Dimo’s Pizza, has launched a cookbook called "Revolutionary Pizza: Bold Pies that Will Change Your Life … and Dinner." The book was published this month by Page Street Publishing and is available for $19.99.
"'Revolutionary Pizza' is more of a look into how we approach our craft," Syrkin-Nikolau said in a news release."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."
Chapters include classics, appetizers, street eats, dessert pies and tips and tricks. Recipes include:
