Coming Attractions, Week of July 18th
It’s mid-summer now, the tomatoes are coming in like crazy, baseball has started its second season, football pre-season practice might actually get the green light this week, and everybody is trying to get some R&R. This week, I’m taking some time off from Pizza Quest and calling in to the bullpen for relief. Brad English will be doing a Brad’s Blog this week in place of the Peter’s Blog, and we’ll post it on Tuesday. It’s a terrific retrospective piece that gives a little glimpse of the roots of Pizza Quest, at least Brad’s roots as a man on a quest — kind of a prequel! You’ll enjoy reading it.
Brad will also be offering you a treat on Wednesday when he posts his latest kitchen creation– a pizza he calls T.J.’s Asparagus Pizza, which is based on a recipe one of our members sent in! Join up and keep the ideas coming. I know that ever since he caught wind of the notion of shaving fresh asparagus into threads he’s been thinking about this one. A great summer pizza!!
And, on Friday we introduce you to our newest guest columnist, Teresa Greenway, who will be serving as our resident sourdough expert. In her first Guest Column, she shares with us her method for making sourdough pizza crust, and you will also find out information for how to get a free download of her sourdough baking book and a link to her excellent website. All that on Friday!!
I’ll be back next week and we’ll post the newest webisode in our Cass House series as well as all sorts of other cool stuff. As you know, there’s always something new here at Pizza Quest!

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.
