1. What's New: How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Alicia Kamalei Grande Eating Pizza at Sally's Apizza

We returned from the mainland a couple of weeks ago. We went to visit friends and family in Southeastern Connecticut. We always have a good time . Of course we ate a lot of pizza.  We also, had tons of seafood including lobsters and clams.

Our family was raised on seafood, particularly fresh lobster. We always enjoyed lobsters at family celebrations. You can get New England lobsters just about anywhere. (Even here in Hawaii, you can buy fresh New England Lobster, not that I ever do, mind you...)

Fried clams are a little different. You can't find fried clams with the bellies, anywhere,  except New England. We ate a lot of fried clams.

For me, the highlight of the trip was going on a pizza tour. I was fortunate to be able to visit the Holy Trinity of Pizza: Pepe's, Sally's and Modern. Each is an established pizza operation. Each has a coal fired oven. Each has a dedicated staff.

Each pizzeria made pizza that was memorable and incredible. Each pizzeria made their own pizza unique, original, and delicious..

 I reviewed the Holy Trinity of Pizza: Pepe's, Sally's and Modern, in my blog.

You can also read a review of some of the finest home-made pizza I have ever eaten, at Jon F.'s house.

2. What's New, Too: The Forum

Quite honestly, I am totally shocked at the amount of buzz generated by the Pizza and Pasta Forum. At this point, the posts have started to show up in the major search engines, such as Yahoo, and Google.

Already, over 160 members have signed up. (It's free, of course). There are over 350 posts. The amount of unique content is impressive. In less than 60 days the Pizza and Pasta Forum, has generated lots of useful content found no-where else.

This is a low key, fun Forum. Ask a question or share your knowledge. You can just visit, if you like and not say anything. The rules are clear: be considerate and have respect for all.

There are a couple of very cool things you can do with the Forum. The Forum has the ability to create polls. For example I created a poll to get opinions about Pepe's, Sally's and Modern. Here is the page: Forum Poll

Another interesting feature is the ability to send a private message to anyone in the forum. Once you sign up for the Forum, you get your own private mailbox.

My personal goal is to have over 1,000 members by the end of next month. Please visit, sign up and share your knowledge or questions. Please visit The Forum and sign up at this link: the Pizza and Pasta Forum.

Also if you decide you do not want to sign up (or have problems signing up, email me at my private email address and I will post for you. Here is my private email:

3Legends of Pizza, Volume 1, On-line

I recently  got a phone call from Tom Boyles, editor of PMQ magazine. PMQ is a well respected professional pizza publication. Tom had called to discuss my Legends of Pizza. Project. (Legends of Pizza. Volume 1, is a series of interviews with noted pizzaiolos Peter Reinhart, Gary Bimonte and Chris Bianco.)


Peter Reinhart


Gary Bimonte


Chris Bianco

He explained PMQ had recently launched a new project called Pizza Radio. He wanted permission to make parts of the  Legends of Pizza interviews available on Pizza Radio to the general public. I feel this is the right thing to do.

I gave him permission. If you have not already, you can listen to a part of Legends of Pizza. Volume 1 on-line. Here is the link: http://www.pizzaradio.com/?cat=5

This is a fantastic pizza resource. I am honored pizzatherapy.com has been chosen to be part of these fantastic pizza resources. Visit Pizza Radio for other
 pizza programs.

Please understand, the sound quality at Pizza Radio, is not nearly as good as the original recording of Legends of Pizza, Volume 1,. The on-line versions have been edited. The CD Legends of Pizza, Volume 1, is cleaner, longer and contains music.

You can claim your own copy of  Legends of Pizza, Volume 1, right here.

4.  Calling All Independent Pizza Operators:
 
National Kid's Pizza Making Contest!

I recently received the following press release:


LAFAYETTE, CA (August 9, 2006 )  Lindsay Olives and The World Pizza Champions Inc. invite independent pizzerias nationwide to join their national Kid's Pizza Pie Making Contest on Saturday, October 7, 2006. Pizzerias can sign-up to host the contest for their neighborhood kids by contacting Tony Gemignani at 510-427-6979 / tony@worldpizzachampions.com or Michael Shepherd at 567-674-4464 / michael@worldpizzachampions.com, now through September 1, 2006.



The nationwide contest challenges children, ages 12 and younger, to make a kid-sized pie with their favorite ingredients, including olives, at the pizzeria, where it will be baked and judged. The winning pizza pie will be named by its creator and added to the pizzeria?s menu. One Grand Prize winner randomly selected from winners at the independent pizzerias will be awarded a visit by one of The World Pizza Champion Team members to learn some pizza acrobatic tricks. Most recently The World Pizza Champions performed their breath-taking pizza pie acrobatics on ?Master of Champions,? ABC-TV?s prime time reality show. All winners will receive a case of their favorite Lindsay Olives.



Lindsay Olives will provide marketing, media outreach, sign-up materials and olives to each pizzeria. The World Pizza Champions will select the pizzerias and serve as a liaison with them. The pizzerias will be responsible for distributing marketing and media materials, selecting the judges, providing all ingredients except for the olives, which Lindsay Olives will supply, and implementing the contest and its prize. Contest rules can be reviewed at www.worldpizzachampions.com/lindsayolives.php.
