Tom Carrig

Thomas Carrig, DTR CSW left a rewarding twenty year career in developing high performance polymer adhesives to pursue a lifelong passion for food and wine. After earning his Culinary Arts degree from Johnson & Wales University, he took it one step further, earning a B.S. in Culinary Nutrition and combining his love for science with his passion for food. Thomas uses his unique perspective to examine the path of food from the farm, through a factory—or not—to the table, and through the body (if you are what you eat, then so is what you are eating, and so on). His views influence his cooking and inspire his writing. Thomas is the chef/owner of Chef Thomas LLC ( ), a personal chef service focused on the proper feeding and fueling of clients with farm fresh, organic foods, where he shares his enthusiasm and knowledge through in-home classes on all food and wine related topics. His unique credentials include the titles “Certified Specialist of Wine” (by the Society of Wine Educators), and “Dietetic Technician, Registered” (by the Commission on Dietetic Registration). He is also an avid barbecue fanatic with the title of “Certified Barbeque Judge” (by the Kansas City Barbeque Society), having the privilege to judge the Jack Daniel’s World Invitational Barbecue Championships—twice!

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.
