    "The feature of pizza in the title of this book is more a play on words, than an actual use of pizza as a plot point in the story itself. This book does feature a great deal of food and vividly descriptive writing about the food, but it is not exactly a book focusing on or devoting much of its writing to pizza as a food."

    "Given the premise, I thought this would be a pretty stupid book. It is a little bit stupid, but in the best way. Very funny but also interesting mystery with great characters and a compelling plot. Not a literary masterpiece, but a fun quick read."

    "I was a bit disappointed. I'll admit that I didn't read the full title, and I expected this to be a novelization of the American Pie movie. Color me stupid. American Pie: MY SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT PIZZA is of course not a novelization of the movie, but it is a dandy look into the italian american staple. I was engrossed from page 1. What's your favorite pie? "
