In Pizza, I realized I have thirty years in and thirty more to do, but it wasn't till the last seven years that I have dedicated myself completely to the study of this great craft. It started on a trip to a few tomato farms in Modesto, California and Commune di San Marzano, Italy. Seeing first first hand the quality and dedication farmers and family owned canneries have in bringing a superior quality tomato to the pizza maker was astonishing. My mission for a complete education on pizza continued with some good fortune that was bestowed on me when I was invited to particitpate on a Food Network program about pizza. During the trip we visited cow pastures in Caserta, Italy. This is where I found artisan cheese makers who shared the same passion for their industry as I do for mine.
