1) How to Make Pesto

Pesto is wonderful and refreshing.

Use it for pasta, pizza or just spread it on a piece of ciabatta bread.

The best thing about pest is how easy it is to make

Easy Pesto

  • 2 cups basil (loosely packed)
  • 1/4 Cup Pine Nuts
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor
  2. Pulse gently until everything is roughly mixed.

2) Mama Mia, Pizza Beer!

Pizza Beer is here! In the following interview we discover the history of pizza beer, how it was created and the future of pizza beer!

I have to say one of my more interesting tastes recently in the world of pizza, was pizza beer.

Now I know what you are thinking, c'mon Albert...Pizza Beer?

No kidding it was quite good.

Pizza Beer is the brain child of Chef Tom. He was experimenting with some home brews in his own kitchen when he made the discovery.

He shared it with some Friends and they shared it with their Friends. He knew he had a hit on his hands.

As a matter of fact, one pizzeria in California (Portino’s) actually uses pizza beer as the basis for all of their pizza.

And it’s good. chef Tom uses basic beer ingredients and then adds: basil, oregano , tomato and garlic.
I was able to do an interview with the creator of Pizza Beer, Chef Tom and Frank of Portino’s.

Here is the Link to Pizza Beer.

Stay tuned to this one, its a shocker!

3) Pizza Therapy Pizzeria in Hawaii

Caleb Asks:

Not sure if you can be reached at this email address, but my wife and I LOVE your crust. I have been using your crust recipe twice-a-month in our home in Kutztown, PA for about a year now, and it works splendidly!

Recently, I learned my Mom and my Aunt are headed to Honolulu for a little vacation, and I wonder if they might visit your shop. Do you have a shop of some kind downtown, or perhaps one on the North Shore?

Please let me know, and I can send you a couple of customers next month...

Thank you,


My response:

 Hi Caleb.

Thanks. I'm glad you are making great pizza!

At this time, I do not have a pizza shop.

I make pizza for friends, family and an occasional pizza demo.
