Pizza Quest with Peter Reinhart

Brad’s South Bay Sausage Pizza with Clams

I was in the mood for a sausage pizza with milky fresh mozzarella. It would be too easy to just fire up the sausage in the oven and plop it down on the pizza and call it a day. This is Pizza Quest after all! I wanted to do something different – not just a pizza with sausage but a really good pizza that was about sausage. As you hopefully have seen on…Read More…

Is it Chile or Chili? Here’s the Answer….

Written By Peter Reinhart
Tuesday, 07 March 2017 Peter's Blog

Note from Peter:  A few months ago I received an e-mail from Steve Marquez, who you will meet below, correcting my spelling of the word “chile,” as in chile pepper (and not as in chili con carne, which was my error). He was right, of course, and I could see he was really passionate and deeply connected to his beloved Colorado and New Mexico chile (and not chiles — it…Read More…

Prosciutto Pizza with Fresh Arugula Webisode, Vito Romani, Part 2: The Forno Bravo Expo

When we last watched Vito Romani, owner of Stella’s Pizza Pie, he made us his version of a Hawaiian pizza and it was pretty awesome. This time around he shows us his take on a prosciutto pizza with fresh arugula. As you will see, I was blown away by the flavor and aromatics of Vito’s infused garlic oil, which he used on both the pizza and as part of the…Read More…

I was skeptical that it would work as well as he promised but he offered to send me one, and also one for Brad English, to play around with. Needless to say, we both loved the Steel…Read More…

Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza? Why not!

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 Brad's Corner

This pizza has been formulating in my mind for some time. It finally had it’s chance to become a reality this past weekend. It was raining. It was raining as long and consistently as I can remember here in Los Angeles.  We knew the rain was coming and looked forward to a day off to just hang out, watch some football and make something to eat that served the purpose…Read More…

New Webisode from the Forno Bravo Expo: Vito’s “Hawaiian” Pizza

We first met Vito Romani over a year ago when I posted about him following the Forno Bravo Expo at Talbott Vineyards in Salinas, California. It’s been awhile, and Vito’s story is so inspiring, that I think the best thing to do is to reprint that section of my earlier post as an intro to this new webisode, where Vito show us his take on Hawaiian Pizza: … Out of…Read More…

Interview with Phil Korshak of Home Slice Pizza

Hi Everyone,     As noted in my post of January 19th, I got to spend some time with Phillip Korshak in Austin, Texas at his pizzeria Home Slice, where they make about three thousand pizzas and slices a day to an unending line of both sit-down and take-out customers.
