Pizza Quest Globe

Coming Attractions, Week of May 2nd

Welcome back everyone!  This week we’ll be posting a terrific new photo essay by Brad English, our “Watch Mr. Wizard” pizza experimenter (and also the director of most of the videos on Pizza Quest). Brad has a number of new pizza experiments to share with you but this week we’ll start with something he calls his “Upside Down Margherita Pizza.”  You’ll find out what he means by that on Wednesday.

On Tuesday I’ll be posting my weekly “Peter’s Blog,” this time featuring a report from the Second Annual Charlotte Gluten-Free Expo. Gluten-free is here to stay and, after some of the sessions I observed, I’m beginning to think there are some big health bombshells on their way that will affect us all. In addition to that, I’ll also be sharing some news from Joe Lindley about how to get some of that great sprouted wheat flour I wrote about a few weeks ago.

We’ll be back in the Gastro next week, so fear not. In the meantime, feel free to revisit some of the great webisodes and instructional videos already posted — just click through to the various sections. If you’re new to, it’s a chance to catch up on all the content from the past four months. Plus, who knows, maybe a few other surprises since, as you know, there’s always something new here at Pizza!!

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.
