Hi Everyone, I’m back from a fun and exciting trip through Texas, which entailed visiting five cities in five days, teaching artisan bread classes at the Central Market Cooking Schools in San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Fort Worth, and Dallas.

Tuesday, 27 December 2016 Peter's Blog

Hi Everyone, I think it’s safe to say that this was the craziest year many of us have ever known, from sublime to surreal. But at least here, on PizzaQuest, it has been a wonderful year, in many ways our best ever, and for this I want to say thanks to everyone who helped make it possible, including you, our followers, readers, and fellow pizza freaks. One of the things…Read More…

Guest Column, John Arena: Top It Off

Written By John Arena
Tuesday, 13 December 2016 Guest Columns

Some pizza purists maintain that the only “real” pizza is the Margherita. Others will argue that the Pizza Marinara predates the Margherita. True diehards insist that the Pizza Bianca, with just olive oil and sea salt, is clearly the oldest form.

A pizza for a rainy day…

Written By Brad English
Tuesday, 29 November 2016 Brad's Corner

It was one of those days. It had rained recently and although the sky was blue there were some clouds that lingered. You could still feel the presence of the rain in the cool fall air. I was off from work and was looking forward to picking the kids up from school and surprising them with some piping hot pizzas out of the oven. We had a great little family…Read More…

Note from Peter: Scott Wiener, a regular Pizza Quest Guest Columnist, is back to report on an amazingly successful fund raising event in NYC that may soon be showing up in other cities.  Scott’s column highlights to me the grace that flows to and through people who have a vision, a passion, and the willingness to simply “go for it!”  Scott’s Pizza Tours began as a college hobby and soon grew into…Read More…

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.
