John O'Hanlon

John is a retired research physicist (IBM, Yorktown Hts.) and electrical engineering professor (Arizona). Baking has been a life long interest that time limited to sweet buns and coffee rings for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and perhaps hot cross buns at Easter time. A decade of retirement has provided space to explore, learn, obsess and enjoy. Bagels, English muffins, ciabatta, multigrain, and other great breads found in Peter’s books, have become our daily fare. We cannot remember the last time we purchased a loaf, except for a miche at Lionel Poilâne’s Boulangerie!

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.
