Dig in! Chef writes book all about pizza

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Chicagoans love their pizza, but so does the rest of the country!

The average person in the United States eats more than 23 pounds of pizza each year! About three billion pizzas are sold yearly, and on top of that, an additional one billion frozen pizzas are sold! Wow!

In his book, "The United States of Pizza," Chef Craig Priebe has created a pizzeria travelogue. He scoured the countryside for the most inventive and delicious pies he could find and put together 75 different recipes! Some may shock you, some you may make you instantly crave, and some may inspire a road trip or two.

Priebe joined us LIVE on FOX 32 News at Noon to talk more about what inspired him to make a book about pizza.
