The growing popularity of pizza around the world is undeniable – home cooks are experimenting with different toppings, sauces and pizza doughs, artisan pizzerias are popping up even in more remote places and pizza ovens can already be found in many backyards. What better evening than one spent with knit friends eating pizza and chatting – and maybe even a glass of red.

In his first book, Jukka shows you how to create the ultimate pizza experience in your own home, using tasty ingredients and only a few simple utensils.

Jukka introduces the reader to traditional pizza styles from Naples to New York, and offers recipes for 6 different pizza doughs as well as 27 delicious pizzas – not to forget the perfect sauces, toppings and drinks!
Jukka “Slicemonger” Salminen is a photographer, musician and pizza enthusiast from Tampere, Finland, who has worked with pizza for several years. The social aspect of pizza-making is also important for Jukka – he thinks cooking and eating together is simply the best thing there is.
