Nonfiction Books About Pizza

Spread the love

October is National Pizza Month in the US although it’s celebrated in other places too. So in honour of that, I thought I’d share some books about Pizza or with Pizza in the title. Nonfiction of course!

NOTE: I haven’t necessarily read these books unless I say so. Read/Buy at your own risk. But remember, if you don’t try new books/authors, you might miss out on something great.
