Pizza Talk: Chris Bianco and Rob Dinapoli, Together!

Written By Peter Reinhart
Thursday, 09 July 2020 Pizza Talk

We’ve had both Chris Bianco and Rob Dinapoli on Pizza Talk individually, hearing from each how they came together to collaborate on their game-changing Bianco-DiNapoli Tomatoes.  This time around we get to hear the whole story from them together and, of course, much much more, including an update on the These Hands movement.

This pandemic crisis has hit everyone hard and, at the time of this interview, the city of Phoenix, Arizona, home and birthplace of Pizzeria Bianco, took a huge hit and the whole area was being shut down yet again. Chris shares with us the emotions and personal self-reflections he has been going through, and both he and Rob demonstrate the resiliency of the artisan spirit and community. This two-part episode will touch your heart!

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.
