1. What's New- grandepublishing.com

I am pleased to announce, after months and months of work, the launch of a new website: grandepublishing.com (http://grandepublishing.com)

Over the years, I have received countless emails from people asking questions and advice
about writing e-books, building websites or general information about Internet marketing.

grandepublishing.com is a site that will share what I have learned on the web, so you will not have to make my mistakes. The website will also be a distributor of e-books.
I want to be a marketer of information. I want to sell and distribute e-books. I also want to show you: if you ever thought having a business on the Internet, you can do it!

What does that mean for pizzatherapy.com? pizzatherapy.com is my first priority. It is still my passion. I plan to continue with "Pizza News". We are not going anywhere. We will be right here!

I do want to personally invite you to visit grandepublishing.com (http://grandepublishing.com).

Seriously, Pizza News Readers, thank you so much for your continued support. I really appreciate all you have done for me. If it were not for your continued support, pizzatherapy.com, would be a memory in cyberspace. Gracias. Mahalo.

3. "Studies on the Modified
Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of Pizza"

Professor Singh writes:

Dear Sir,

I would like to introduce myself, Preeti Singh, PhD Scholar in
Food Packaging Lab of Dairy Technology Division at National
Dairy Research Institute, Haryana, India.

Sir my PhD Research Topic is "Studies on the Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of Pizza".

While searching on the Internet I have gone through your website about
Pizza Development and all studies involving around it.

Sir, I would like to know about the chemical composition of different types of pizza,
what standards do you follow to make your pizza the best in terms of Nutritional Value,
Chemical composition.

I would be highly grateful to you. Waiting for your positive reply

Kind Regards

Preeti Singh
Ph.D Scholar

Haryana, India.

  My Response:

Dear Professor Singh,

Thank you very much for your sincere consideration regarding pizzatherapy.com

Please believe me, my reply is positive.

Although we are a website all about pizza, we are primarily for the homemade pizza person.
 We are unable to answer your scientific questions regarding composition and nutrition.

We are going to refer to you to our "Pizza Business Page"

At the bottom of the page you will find links to PMQ and Pizza Today websites which will offer many opportunities for your research questions.

We are also very much interested in your own research. If you would share some of our findings (in layman's terms of course), we would be happy to share it with our readers of "Pizza News"
our free newsletter.

Also if you would care to do a scientific analysis of our pizza dough recipe, we would be happy to share it with you.


Pizza on Earth,

Albert Grande, The Pizza Promoter, M.A.

4. Pizza For Pets: A Strange Request, But Maybe Not

Kris B. writes:

I have a crazy idea and want to share with you. Have you thought about making
pizza for PETS, (dogs & or cats)?

Would it be possible to make pizza using the right ingredients for pets to digest without any stomach problems?

If this is possible let me know so we can start making some for my 4 legged friends which I have
5 dogs and 3 cats and I board dogs in my home. It would be a real nice treat for my visiting house
guests. Let me know what you think. (It's just a thought!)Thank you for your time and I will look forward to hearing from


My Response:

Hi Kris,

I must admit I have never thought of "Pizza for Pets".

The idea however sounds incredible! The possibilities are there. There are millions of pets and pet lovers. If there was a way to create a healthy pizza for pets, it would be a winner.

I must admit, I do not know what is healthy or tastes good to
pets. I have seen snacks for dogs in the shape of bacon.

Anyway, I will invite the readers of Pizza News (our free newsletter) to comment on this idea and concept.

Thanks very much for writing. If you come up with any more ideas about this please let us know.

I would consider adding a "Pizza for Pets" section at pizzatherapy.com.

Pizza Hut does have a "Pizza for Pets" program. Here is the


This is really "Pizza for Leon County Humane Society" (LCHS)

Thanks again for writing.

5. The Prego Pizza Revisited

Here is a tale that appeared in Pizza News in 2002:

Paul writes:

Your story... about pizza that induces labor, (See Pizza News, June 2002) sent my daughter on a quest to get the recipe as she was ready to pop herself. She found the article on your site and called the restaurant (Skipolini's Pizza, Clayton, California) and much to her surprise was given the recipe. That night she had a local pizzeria make her pie. She awoke at 5 the next morning in labor, and later that day made me a grandpa. Pizza Therapy indeed! 

On a related note: I've been making BBQ'd Pizza on my Weber for the past year at home to rave reviews. I finally decided to take a chance and did a Pizza Booth at a couple of small local festivals. I learned a lot, covered my expenses, got credibility, and most importantly saw delighted expressions on the faces of my customers. My 5 day old grandson even made it to the debut of "Paisano Barbequed Pizza". 
Regards, Paul

My response:

Thanks for the story, Paul! That "Prego Pizza" really works!
We also enjoyed your grilling pizza tale!
