"Cheerful, precisely composed gouache paintings accented with photo collages of fresh ingredients add warmth and humor to the story." 
School Library Journal

"Good pizza is tailor made to bring out a smile, and Wellington gets that zestful pleasure just right."
Kirkus Reviews

"Young pizza lovers will enjoy this charmingly illustrated story about the pizza-making process. Pizzeria owner Sally grows her own tomatoes and makes tomato sauce. Then she makes dough, layers ingredients on it, and bakes the pizza. Finally, to the delight of eager customers, everyone can eat. On each left-hand page, the text, featuring short sentences and basic vocabulary, is set within pizza-shaped white space ringed by items related to the story; opposite is a full-page picture showing Sally at work. Simply drawn cartoonlike illustrations, in bold, cheerful colors and patterns, fill the pages, incorporating occasional scanned images (pizza, tomatoes) for contrast and texture. Young ones will appreciate the vibrant art and equally bubbly overview. The appended pizza recipe will get readers and listeners into the kitchen for more fun." Booklist

The perfect tie-in to elementary school lessons about where food comes from, this book will be embraced by teachers. It’s a delightful addition to Monica Wellington’s nonfiction for the youngest readers, and it comes complete with a recipe so kids can make pizza with Sally.
