Webisode # 7: Nancy and Mozza

Written By Peter Reinhart
Thursday, 17 February 2011 Webisodes

During the webisode segments that we’ve posted during the past weeks we’ve spent a lot of time at Pizzeria Mozza and LaBrea Bakery, but have heard only a little from Nancy Silverton, the creator of these amazing pizzas. We still have a few more segments to share with you from Pizzeria Mozza before we move on to other exciting places but this week, at last, we’ll hear from Nancy herself.

One of the things we marveled at during our visit was not only the long lines of people, happy people, served everyday, but the sheer artistry of the food. As you will see in this segment, a great deal of thought went into the creation of the menu offerings and Mozza really does take the very concept of what’s possible with pizza to another level, one that has had a major impact on many restaurants that have opened since. We’ve all heard the expression, stretching the envelope, but it’s especially exciting to actually experience it when it happens.

But let’s hear about all this from Nancy herself, and I’ll continue to add commentary when we post the final two Pizzeria Mozza episodes, still to come. Enjoy!

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.
