Pizzeria Delfina: A Cappucino and Obsession Webisode #2

Written By Peter Reinhart

Craig Stoll (he’s the one with the beard) doesn’t look like an obsessed mad man, while his head pizzaiolo, Anthony Strong, well, yeah, he does. But they both are obsessed and mad, each in his own way, which is kind of cool because we get to see two sides of the “fire in your belly” drive that can and should take over one’s life, giving it a sense of daily purpose. They make a great team and, in this segment, we get a glimpse of their vision and the love they each feel for feeding people and giving them joy and, simply, bringing them to the table around great food in an unpretentious atmosphere. I love Craig’s line, “There’s beauty in functionality” as he describes the layout of the restaurant. Lot’s of thoughtful lines like these, if you listen closely.

We’ll continue this exploration with Craig and Anthony in subsequent segments (and see some of their great pizzas and other goodies!), but for now, enjoy our discussion around some energizing cups of cappucino in the relaxed dining room of Pizzeria Delfina.




Love it
Great job keep it coming. Pizza bringing people together not just filling the belly. Tthe kitchen interacting with the people.

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.
