      American Pie is to pizza, what The Perfect Scoop is to ice cream. The only gripe some people have with American Pie is that only half the book is recipes. That being said, Reinhart does a good job of giving many different types of doughs, sauce, etc., in that half a book. I personally enjoyed the non-recipe part, but I've heard many gripe about it. I've not seen a better book for making this many different types of dough geared toward the home cook.
