Hi Again,

It’s been awhile; crazy summer, going way too fast.  Just a few quick items for you:

–First, we’ll be running Bob Radcliffe’s final installment of the Rocky Ford Tomato Pie series in a few days, so please do check back. It’s been a very inspirational story, full of useful tips for anyone who loves pizza and also for those of us who still have a dream or two to pursue and need to know that it’s never too late.

–Also, my friend Dede Wilson, who created an amazing website called, just ran two pieces about me and pizza. Here are the links and, after you check them out you might want to check out the rest of the site and revisit it often:


Brad English is working on another crazy fun recipe and we should have that ready to post soon too. I don’t know how he keeps coming up with these but he’s a big, hungry guy who loves to feed people. Brad is the personification of what Pizza Quest is all about and his recipes are awesome!

One final note: for any of you in the Skowhegan, Maine area, I’ll be there next week from July 23-25th for the annual Kneading Conference (a fun and informative gathering for serious bread heads), followed by the Maine Bread Festival on Saturday the 26th at the Fair Grounds that is open to the public. Come over and say hi if you’re there.

Thanks so much for your support and loyalty, and for continuing to visit us here. Lots more still to come….

Happy Mid-Summer!!!!

Hello Peter!

My dad is Paul Castellucci from Mama’s Pizzeria. We were looking at “old” pictures and found one of you at the first Mama’s location on Main Street when you were just a wee lad. Wanted to send the photo to you.


Hi Paula,

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.
