PIZ'ZA FOR LIFE
“WELCOME TO THE 'ZA REPORT
THE GLORIOUS JOURNEY OF A PROFESSIONAL PIZZA ENTHUSIAST”
While I live in NYC, the pizza capitol of the world, I still must pay homage to my favorite spots from back home. Topping my list: Adriatico’s Pizza in Cincinnati. A spicy sicilian square with 2 cheeses that packs a punch. Marion’s Pizza in Dayton, Ohio. A round pizza cut into squares, a whole lot of oregano, a sweet & tangy sauce and burned cheese markings coat the top.
After many years of research and pizza consumption, I prefer to pair root beer with my pizza. I recommend the following three root beers: 1. Stewart's 2. Foxon Park (New Haven brew!) 3. Olde Brooklyn 4. Sprecher. When I can't find a bottle of root beer, I default to a NYC staple, Mexican Coca-Cola out of the bottle. Using real sugar, it is in a class of it's own compared with what we have in the states!
Once a week, the best day of my week, I proudly give pizza tours for Scott’s Pizza Tours scottspizzatours.com. I met Scott over three years ago and when he asked me what I knew about pizza, I said “a bit.” A bit later turned into “a whole lot more” than I bargained for. Scott is my mentor when it comes to the crust, sauce and cheese combo. Check out our tours and come get cheesy with us!

Being the only ultra runner and professional pizza enthusiast on the planet, I decided to combine both passions into one epic event. On PI day, also known as 3.14, marked the first of what will become a monthly PIzza Crawl in New York City. It is as good as it sounds… that is, if you can run and eat pizza at multiple stops along the way. (more…)
Only In New York…

It’s rare to see a sight so glorious, but this one… I just had to share. On one of the coldest days in NYC this winter, I just so happened to witness this fantastic spectacle. Two girls, en route to what I have to guess was a pizza party at work, paused outside of Prince St. Pizza to have their moment with the pizza. It is a daring move to open the lid of the box that is protecting the infamous spicy Spring square while 10° outside, but I have to give a shout out to the girls in this photo for doing what any smart pizza lover would do, sneak a square in while it’s hot!

How to Use a Portable Pizza Pouch

The only thing hotter than a genuine gold dime piece around my neck is the must-have fashion accessory of the decade, a portable pizza pouch holding a slice of pizza. For the record, I own both of these amazing fashion accessories. The gold dime piece belonged to my grandmother as a gift from my grandfather… both of whom hailed from Ohio. It still troubles me to know that she wore this at the tender age of 80 while clipping coupons in her muumuu. Rest in peace Grandma Dorthy and long live your gold dime piece! (more…)

There is that saying that a picture can be worth a thousand words, but so can a simple photograph of a slice of pizza. The latest pizza spotlight is shedding light on how healthy pizza is now the newest, greatest thing. Truth be told, pizza is not the newest greatest thing people are talking about, it has been the greatest thing… ever. (more…)
