Pete Evans has had a lifelong love affair with pizza.
His mother would make them from scratch for him and his friends - dialling the delivery service was never an option - and he later trained with an Italian pizzaiolo called Arturo. 'Watching him work', says Pete, 'was like watching an opera and a ballet and a rock concert at the same time'.
Pete went on to open three award-winning Sydney restaurants specializing in contemporary cuisine but his love for pizza never waned and eventually he opened up his own pizza restaurant in Sydney, which has enjoyed critical and popular acclaim.
The 100+ recipes in this book cover classic pizzas and more modern versions, and include breakfast pizzas, indulgent pizzas, sweet pizzas and pizza recipes shared by his friends.
Pete's restaurants have won numerous awards for their pizzas.
This book features sumptuous photography; and lets you discover unexpected flavour sensations - from breakfast through to dessert pizza.
