  We have just introduced Kelly Whitaker of Pizzeria Basta with his Bel Gioioso Burrata Cheese appetizer in the Instructional section.  Let me just say that this is a recipe you will want to try at home.  I have personally made this 3 times since I returned from the trip.  As Kelly says, he uses whatever he has in season, or on hand.  I have done my versions with Leeks,…Read More…

Pizza Quest Info


Vision Statement

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.
