1. Legends of Pizza, Volume 3: Evelyn Sloman: The Lost Interviews

I'm very excited to share with you Part of Legends of Pizza Volume 3.

These interviews were conducted a while ago. I had started to edit them and was ready to release Legends of Pizza Volume 3.

I was very excited about all of the knowledge that Evelyn brought to the world of pizza.

Then disaster struck: my hard drive crashed, leaving me with nothing but digital dust of an incredible conversation with Evelyn Sloman.

Recently after spending hundreds of dollars, I was able to recover most of the files from my hard drive. Luckily, I could save parts of the original mp3's of the Evelyn Sloman interview
I was able to piece together parts of the interview and hope to release Legends of Pizza Volume 3.

I am pleased to present The Lost Interviews of Evelyn Sloman

Listen to the Evelyn Sloman Interview Below


Thank you so much Evelyn: You are a legend of Pizza!

3) Is this stealing?  pizzatherapy.com  =  pizzatherapy.com.xxx

I couldn't believe it... I searched for pizzatherapy.com and I was shocked...

A company in another country...(All right if you insist, it's in Australia...) registered the domain:

(replace the XXX with whatever you want...)

How was that possible I thought?

Could I just register some of the big companies and just put another extension on their domain?

Like could I be microsoft.com.XXX

or amazon.com.XXX?

I was starting to get upset...

So here is what they say on their website:


Pizzatherapy is an idea conceived by people who really, really love pizza. In fact, they used to joke that if there were such a thing as a healthy and delicious takeaway pizza, they would eat it every day.

Isn't that special!

Here's a picture I ripped off of their website:

Why take our name?

Not only takeaway pizza
but take away the name: Pizzatherapy

Not only that but register the name pizzatherapy.com.XXX


You know at first I was upset...then I thought:

I should actually pay these guys because they are advertising for
Pizza Therapy!

I wrote them an email...I thanked them.

I told them I wanted to interview them...

I asked them to send me a t-shirt...
After all I thought, that was the least they could do!

I told them I thought we should talk... maybe have a pizza together...

I never heard from them...

I'm still waiting!

If you see these guys please tell them I'm not mad...

I just want to get to know them a little better.

More on this story as it develops...

I'm sending them a copy of this page...




4) Vic's Pizza: Finding Heaven in New York!

Vic writes:


Thanks for the great website. Attached: 15-16 pie, sausage, sausage and mushrooms. Using a Hearthkit for 3 years now. I tried numerous types of baking apparatus for home pizza, and the Hearthkit is by far the best. It takes one hour to heat the stone to 550. The pizza is done in 7 minutes and the kitchen smells awesome.

I found consistency in my pizzas by weighing the water and (high gluten) flour components. I bought a small digital scale (grams setting is easier) for this purpose and use it to divide my dough mix into two equal parts. No more trying to stretch dough beyond its capacity. Been doing this for 2 years now. Hope this helps.

Be well,

Vic from NY


Here's a picture of Vic's pizza:

Vic's amazing pizza from pizzatherapy.com

My response:

Thanks Vic! You made an incredible pizza!

As far as the Hearthkit..I never heard from them again.
