Did you know that, back in the early days, pizza was considered a poor man’s dish in Italy because the only ingredients that the country had never lacked, even during the time of abject poverty, were flour and tomatoes? Today, pizza is one of the most iconic and popular dishes in the world, and, as such, it certainly deserves to be immortalized in a great cookbook like Dimitri Syrkin-Nikolau’s – Revolutionary Pizza: Bold Pies that Will Change Your Life…and Dinner.

What you will not find in Syrkin-Nikolau’s book is boring, same old cheese and sauce combination. The recipes in Revolutionary Pizza are, well, revolutionary indeed. Based on a wide variety of pizzas prepared by the renowned Dimo’s Pizza parlour in Chicago, of which Syrkin-Nikolau is the founder, this 160-page-book is going to blow your mind and transform you into a pizza connoisseur for life.

As far as the recipes go, we have a few questions for you. Have you ever tried a spinach and bean quesadilla pizza? Or chicken ‘n’ waffles? Or the Argyle-style pizza with Sriracha sauce, peanut satay, marinated tofu and traditional toppers like bean sprouts and cilantro? Or a pizza aptly named ‘The Cure’ which is a combination of the ingredients found in the Bloody Mary cocktail and olives, pepperoni and cheese? Mouth watering, aren’t they?

In the words of the author, this book is dedicated to “all those who have slaved away in a kitchen preparing food, selflessly and without praise, so that others may enjoy it.”
