When a pizzeria owner's son requests a pizza with everything, his father helps him add sauce, a house, penguins, and more, until they accidentally create a pizza black hole.

Review Quotes

"The book is lighthearted in tone, while expertly depicting the bond between father and child. The bulbous, cartoony illustrations complement the zany plot. . . . Vast spreads and deep, saturated hues strike a vibrant contrast in the fantastical outer space scenes. Deliciously absurd, serve this tale to readers looking for fun and -hilarity."-School Library Journal

"[A] delightful collaboration. . . [T]he sheer joy of Pizza's illustrations becomes palpable in a savory series of tomato-saucy full-bleed spreads that capture the majesty and scope of a new universe made of pizza. . . . Scheele's hilarious concept and Pizza's endearing pencil-and gouache art. . . capture some real heart in the father-son relationship. And what is pizza, really, but the great connector? Its power is on full display here, and a brilliant case cover mimicking a pizza box hidden underneath the book jacket is the cherry on top of this savory screwball romp. Delicious."-Booklist, starred review

"[A Pizza with Everything on It is] catnip for pizza's many fans, and something more: a joyful tribute to a parent and child who are two peas in a pod within a wide universe of families and pizzas."-Publishers Weekly
