Coming Attractions, Week of February 21st
This week we will be posting a new instructional video from Kelly Whitaker of Pizzeria Basta. His previous video, showcasing a wonderful burrata cheese appetizer, was such a hit we’ve decided to bring him back for an encore. This video will post on Thursday (and, if you missed it, you can see his previous video on the Instructionals page in the archives).
On Wednesday, I’ll be posting one of my favorite recipes from, American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza. It’s called Focaccia col Formaggio di Recco (ie: cheese focaccia from the town of Recco, Italy, near Genoa). It’s unlike any other focaccia I’ve ever had and is absolutely fabulous–one of the tastiest treats we discovered –maybe THE tastiest treat– on our journey through Italy!!
On Friday, we have a new Guest Column from John Arena, of Metro Pizza in Las Vegas. He is fast becoming one of our favorite and most popular columnists, and this week he tackles the Industrial Revolution and why the old adage, Practice Makes Perfect, may not always be true.
Tuesday is always Peter’s Blog day, so look for a new posting from me on whatever is burning in my belly.
And don’t forget, we love your comments, so feel free to post them at the bottom of any articles or videos that touch a nerve.

Pizza Quest Info
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.
