Advisory: This story is about a book on the pizzas of New York, not South Florida.

But Miami is often considered the Sixth Borough. And anyway, you might recognize a few New York outposts in South Florida that are featured in Pizzapedia: An Illustrated Guide to Everyone's Favorite Food by Dan Bransfield.

Lucali, Paulie Gee, and pop-up Roberta's (which, sadly, has departed the Design District), along with lots of other pizza places, are mentioned in this delightful book.

Lovingly illustrated with hand-lettered text, Pizzapedia is rich in history and lore, tracing the origin of pizza to the ancient Greeks and presenting the style – Sicilian, New York, Chicago, Detroit. We don't know if Bransfield has tried our Cuban pizza (puffy and fat with lots of cheese – mozzarella and gouda), but he certainly knows his way around New York slices.

Best of all, Bransfield's illustrations make every slice look better than the next. No wonder he's a popular food illustrator, whose work can be seen in The New Yorker and Edible San Francisco, among others. Pick up a copy for a new graduate, a foodie pal and yourself.
