This Week on Pizza Quest

Usually, I post a new Peter’s Blog on Tuesdays but this week we received such a great Guest Column from our friend and frequent contributor, John Arena, that I wanted to post it ASAP, so I’m switching places with him (see below) and I’ll be back at the end of the week with my regular Peter’s Blog. In addition, Brad is currently in NYC on a filming project and is going to try to retrace some of the suggestions that you’ll read about in John’s Guest Column. Hopefully, when he gets back home (he lives in Southern California), he’ll fill us in about how it went and who he met on his mini-quest, and share his adventure.

I’ve been asked when we’ll be posting new videos and all I can say is that we’re working on it. It’s more a technical challenge, getting the many hours of footage organized and edited. Sorry that it’s taking so long but eventually well get it posted for you. In the meantime, we’ll keep things rolling with our ongoing features and commentary, so keep checking back. As you know, there’s always something new on Pizza Quest.

Hi Peter,
What are the pieces of music that you are using in your videos. I would like to get a CD or two. When you use music in your video please identify the Artist and tune. That would make the music lovers in the audience very happy.


I’ll have Brad answer that; I know he gave her a shout out in a previous posting so we’ll get that info up there again ASAP.



The music is by the wife of a good friend of our’s. Her name is Maria De Barros. Here is her website. I’m glad you like it! She’s linked in our “Sites We Like” section also.

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.
