Pizza Quest Info
Coming Attractions, Week of July 11th
Peter Reinhart

Welcome Back Everyone!  We have a full week of wonderful new content for you. In order, here's what's coming your way:

Tuesday: Peter's Blog, with some ruminations on the kid's baking camp I'm teaching all this week at Johnson & Wales (including a big day of pizza baking).

Wed: Fish tacos have been popping up on the site a lot these past few weeks, so Brad English has prepared a great pictorial and recipe that he calls A Fish Tacone Quest. You won't want to miss this one.

Thursday: Our latest webisode segment from The Cass House Inn, in which Chef Jensen and I make a serious smoked fish pizza in his beautiful wood-fired oven using fish we purchased at Ruddell's Smoke House.

Friday: Pizza Quest Co-Founder and Producer Jeffery Michael reports on a farm he discovered in Stockholm, Wisconsin (where?!!) that makes wood-fired pizzas for hundreds of people (pilgrims?), but only on one day each week, using ingredients raised right there on the farm. Jeff took his family on the quest, and he tells us all about it.

Like we say every week: there's always something new on Pizza Quest....

Happy Independence Day week!!!  I hope some of you are making grilled pizzas this year -- let us know if you do.

This week, on Thursday, we'll be posting the next in our webisode series filmed in Cayucos, California.  Chef Jensen Lorenzen and his wife Grace, owners of the Cass House Inn, took me to the nearby Ruddell's Smokehouse, where we had a great visit with Jim Ruddell and learned some of his secrets for smoking albacore and other fish, some of which will show up on top of a pizza in next week's segment.

On Tuesday, I'll be back with another Peter's Blog, pondering the virtues of the many varieties of flour now available to home and professional pizzaiolo's. It's a golden age for pizza freaks, for sure!

In the coming weeks we'll be exploring sourdough pizza, as well as more on fish tacos and the beer/pizza connection. Keep coming back since there's always something new here at Pizza Quest!

Welcome back!

This week we're featuring a tasty new photo recipe from Brad English on Quesadillas (the great Tex-Mex "pizza"). We'll post that on Wednesday.  Also, a new instructional video featuring Joe D'Astice on Thursday using mozzarella curd to make a killer pizza. And I'll be back with another Peter's Blog, commenting further on the notion of "liquid bread."  Next week we'll resume our Cass House Inn webisode series.

Still working on getting that new Guest Column up for you. If so, we'll post it on Friday. Lot's happening, as always, since there's always something new here at Pizza Quest....

Lots of new stuff this week, beginning with a delayed Peter's Blog, direct from our next webisode filming session, taking place in a "secret" location this week. I'll post my report on Thursday, instead of on my usual Tuesday, so that I can bring you an up to the minute report. We're pretty jazzed about it, though.

On Tuesday, instead, we'll post another great home recipe photo spread from Brad, this time documenting his adventures in making a spicy pork sausage pizza following the template of the Buonchristiani Lamb pizza we featured a few months back. It's pretty spectacular and should give you all some ideas for how to use one pizza concept to springboard into another. I hope some of you who are following along are having as much fun with these recipes as Brad is; he's been pretty unstoppable the past few weeks and keeps coming up with more and more great dishes every week.

On Thursday, in addition to my Blog, we'll post the next webisode in the Cass House Inn series; this time Chef Jensen and I do a little jamming and create a mulberry pizza with balsamic glaze as we test-drive his brand new wood-fired oven in Cayucos. It's a sweet pizza and a sweet video, so don't miss it.

On Friday we hope to post a new Guest Column, which is still in editing. Assuming we get all the pieces, we'll post it then, or as soon as it's ready.

Okay, I'm headed out for the next quest; will tell you all about it later this week....

Coming Attractions, Week of June 13

Lots of new things coming your way this week, including the launch of our new Cass House Inn webisode series, filmed in Cayucos, California, posting on Thursday. Prior to that we'll have a Cayucos intro and photo gallery from Brad on Wednesday, and a recipe from me on Friday for how to make pizza dough from that amazing sprouted wheat flour I've been writing about the last few weeks (info on how to order some for yourself was posted last week). And, of course, another Peter's Blog on Tuesday -- I'm still ruminating on the topic but have been thinking a lot about that hilarious John Stewart video on YouTube about the recent weird pizza quest of Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. If you haven't seen it, go to YouTube and look it up ASAP -- it's gotten a lot of hits and is a riot!

Also, for those who don't know, we have our own PizzaQuest YouTube channel where all our posted videos live beside here on our site. In fact, we'd love for you to forward them to anyone who you think might be interested. Our viewership numbers keep growing, thanks to all of your word of mouth sharing. Thanks so much!

Back on Tuesday with a new Peter's Blog. Till then, may your pizzas all be perfect.....
