Artisan Pizza Map
We just posted a new application on It is an interactive map of the world's best pizzerias, and it lets you add comments and photos on the each restaurant or pizzeria, links to their web site and other restaurant reviews, and add your own favorite pizzerias to the map. You can also find addresses, phone numbers, driving directions, etc. It is based on Google Maps, so it can do just about anything. I've called the Artisan Pizza Map.

This is version 1.0 of the map, so let us know how it goes. After a testing period with FB Forum members, we will announce it on, and to the rest of the world.

I hope it is a fun project, and that we create something that is useful for everyone. It could grow to become a great resource for anyone who speaks English, anywhere in the world. Here's to new beginnings.

Re: Artisan Pizza Map

What an absolutely splendid, brilliant idea.

Yeah, but does it work? :)

Artisan Pizza Map for "Ambrosia" in Eugene, OR
Hi, James,

(M) I could not find a way to enter a fine pizzeria called "Ambrosia" on the new Pizza map. Perhaps new entries are restricted to the administrator of that map; in this case to you, James?

(M) Perhaps you could enter Ambrosia on my behalf? the URL is shown below where there is an image of their oven:

(M) Welcome to!

(M) The comments are from the site: "Our Pizzas and Calzones are cooked
in our wood-fired oven which was imported in pieces from Italy!"

Re: Artisan Pizza Map
Thanks Marcel,

I will add it now. We can go both ways, I can add them, or you can go to The Artisan Pizza Map - CommunityWalk, and register there. After you are registered with them, you can add your own pizzeria.

The communitywalk folks are working on the service, and will allow users to register from our map on, without having to go to their site. I will let you know when that is available.

Thanks for looking at this and adding to the maps. So far, so good.

Re: Artisan Pizza Map
Done. It's really easy (once you are registered) because Google Maps is so good. I typed in the basics of the address, Google found it and set the pin, and then I added the restaurant name and category. This should work.

Re: Artisan Pizza Map Posting Photos
(J) "go to The Artisan Pizza Map - CommunityWalk, and register there. After you are registered with them, you can add your own pizzeria."

(M) That makes it direct and it worked! Thanks. :)

(M) The first time I went to your URL, :confused: it was for setting up my own map. I needed to access yours, above.

(M) The new entry I posted for Touche', in Portland, offered the option to post a photo. The one you posted for me, James, (Ambrosia) when clicked on, does not indicate how to post a photo. I'd like to include their oven as its really a fine one but for some reason the option to add (edit) that post is hidden from me.:confused:

Re: Artisan Pizza Map
Wow - that is awesome. Great for planning business travel! I'll wait til we get our wood-oven Campania open to add.

Re: Artisan Pizza Map
Before you open, do we have everything you would recommend in the local area? Make sure you do a Coming Soon post at some point.

Once the map is a little more built out and technically solid, I think we can announce it to a wider audience and get a good following.

Re: Artisan Pizza Map
Ciao Marcel,

I just tried photo posting, and it failed with Mac Safari (they say that will be fixed soon), so I tried it with Firefox, and it worked!

Take a look at the two I did (Gruppo di Amici and Zzest) and see if you can get it to work with a different browser.
