Note from Peter: It’s been a while since we heard from Bob Racliffe, who has been cranking out Jersey -style tomato pies and artisan breads in rural North Carolina for the past few years, via his Ben Franklin Society and Lynch Creek Farm Bakery programs. We all get lots of good ideas and make our “one of these days” lists, but here is a great example of how Bob grabs…Read More…

Tuesday, 03 September 2019 Brad's Corner | Recipes

Queso Fundido! When life gives you lemons the old adage suggests you make lemonade.  I love good lemonade.  It’s sweet, but it has to be tart!  When it’s perfect it balances on the edge between the two taste sensations. Well, today I asked for some lamb merguez sausage at the market and was instead given some pork chorizo sausage. What to do? What to do?!! One thing was for sure,…Read More…

Look at that pizza! I was recently recommending some pizzerias for my brother to take his family while on a trip to New York City. I sent him a link to Una Pizza Napoletana.  I told him about Anthony Mangieri and how he was one of the pizza greats who literally makes every pizza he serves.  After I sent him the link I poked around the website and checked out…Read More…

New Webisode: Anthony Mangieri, part 6

Welcome to the final segment of our visit with Anthony Mangieri, owner of the legendary Una Pizza Napoletana. I’ve mentioned in previous segments that when we filmed this, Anthony was in San Francisco, having moved the original Una from NYC to the west coast for about 6 years.

Pizza Quest is a site dedicated to the exploration of artisanship in all forms, wherever we find it, but especially through the literal and metaphorical image of pizza. As we share our own quest for the perfect pizza we invite all of you to join us and share your journeys too. We have discovered that you never know what engaging roads and side paths will reveal themselves on this quest, but we do know that there are many kindred spirits out there, passionate artisans, doing all sorts of amazing things. These are the stories we want to discover, and we invite you to jump on the proverbial bus and join us on this, our never ending pizza quest.
