Pizza is for Everyone!
A retro church-style cookbook about the king of foods.
From John Carruthers of The Crust Fund Pizza Collective:

"I started Crust Fund Pizza in August 2020 as a way to making lemonade out of the lemons of my personal shortcomings. People flooded the streets seeking justice, equality, and a better future. I on the other hand, was/am a lumpy fella in khaki shorts whose only identifiable skills were tavern pizza and shameless hucksterism. It's easy, in those moments, to feel helpless and quit. But I figured if I could make pizza, I could at the very least make pizza to benefit the organizations and people with the actual skillset to make Chicago a better place. 

Fast forward one year and I'm still selling as many pizzas as I can, but the home kitchen's only so big. So here's the logical next step -- a community cookbook inspired by the Midwestern church cookbooks of yore. Spiral-bound, packed with recipes, and featuring all the folks that the editor could harass into unpaid participation. The only difference here is that I know a veritable Avengers of Chicago pizza folks. Throw in on this project and you're getting guidance from: 

  • Detroit-style pizza master Derrick Tung from Paulie Gee's Logan Square
  • Award-winning food and beer writer Kate Bernot
  • Plate Magazine editor Chanda Ram
  • The hivemind behind Pizza Fried Chicken Ice Cream
  • Chicago Mount Rushmore denizen Doug Sohn 
  • Bill Savage, Chicago historian and actual professor of things
  • Famous internet vulgarian Dennis Lee
  • AND MORE!"

Recipes, essays, and illustrations on the topics of pizza, Chicago, and pizza in Chicago. 

Includes recipes for: deep dish, pan, tavern style, vegan pizza and more

200 pages, comb binding
