We’re not going to get into a Jon Stewart-esque debate about Chicago versus New York styles of pizza because at the end of the day, all pizza is delicious. If anyone was going to write about The United States of Pizza, it would have to be the guy that Chicago magazine called “a pizza miracle worker,” The Chicago Sun Times called a “pizza expert,” and multiple other publications have praised for his excellent cooking. That man is Chef Craig Priebe, and working with him for the book is author Dianne Jacob. The United States of Pizza is a collection of “America’s Favorite Pizzas, From Thin Crust to Deep Dish, Sourdough to Gluten-Free” and chronicles recipes from smoked ham and cheddar to roasted cauliflower and salsa verde that Priebe has collected from all regions of the country.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
