October is National Pizza Month. Let’s Celebrate!

Every October, we in these United States celebrate America’s fave dish. Like we need an excuse to eat pizza, right?

National Pizza Month means we focus on the nitty gritty of pie-making. So, in the spirit of encouraging you to buy the book, make your pizza fresh and help a worthy cause, here’s what you can expect this month:


• a new recipe every few days, with pictures, video and full instructions
• two new episodes of my podcast, “The Pizza Dish
• reports on fun and interesting events, including the annual Slice Out Hunger in NYC
• and many other surprises!

If you have a recipe you’d like to share on the blog, please post it here in the comments or on the Facebook page. Cheers to delicious, gooey, foldable ‘za! — WP
