Steve Dolinsky
About the Author

Steve Dolinsky is a Chicago-based food journalist. He appears regularly on local television and radio -- most especially on the ABC affiliate, where he's billed as "the Hungry Hound" -- and he is a regular contributor to National Public Radio's daily program, The World. Dolinsky is a regular feature writer for the Chicago Tribune, and has won multiple James Beard Awards. He runs a high-traffic food blog and cohosts a podcast with fellow Chicago food celebrity Rick Bayless.

"Chicago pizza is always a popular topic, but no one has ever done a deep dive like this into it. From old school to modern pies, Dolinsky defines the many forms Chicago pizza takes today—and eats his way through the city to establish a pizza pantheon for our time." —Michael Gebert, editor of Fooditor

"Pizza City, USA delves deep into the pizza culture celebrating one of the most flavorful and popular styles in the world, Chicago. I don’t know of another book that has rated neighborhood pizzerias and restaurants on this level." —Tony Gemignani, 12-Time World Pizza Champion and author of The Pizza Bible 

"Exhaustively researched and refreshingly candid and honest, this book is the most compelling argument for why Chicago's pizza scene is the best in the nation. Dolinsky's passion is palpable, his research intensive and his appetite seemingly endless. Don't read on an empty stomach." —Matt Kirouac, author of Unique Eats and Eateries of Chicago
