Our New Year’s Eve Gourmet ‘Pizza For Good’ Menu is Set!

For the 13th consecutive year, we’ll be gathering at my house in midtown Atlanta to ring in 2015 with lots of spiffy gourmet pizzas. We’ll be taking donations for Positive Impact and selling ARTvision pieces to close the year in style.


We are eternally grateful to Baraonda Atlanta, which has graciously agreed to dough-nate again this year and is one of our official sponsors. Please make SURE to patronize this local restaurant—for locals and folks who come in from out of town. Special thanks to Baraonda manager Alin Cruceanu for always supporting us enthusiastically.

We have some our themed-pizza greatest hits, as well as a few new topping recipes as well. Here are the new ones:

Happy New Year! Pictures, video and a recap coming soon.

“Pizza for Good” Launch Party Photos

Stranger hugs. Joe Biden traffic. Vibrator jokes. Raffle-prize winners. Oh yeah, we also had a book to launch, too.

Thanks to all who attended the “Pizza for Good” book-release party at Baraonda Caffe – right in the heart of midtown Atlanta. We had a great turn-out despite traffic grinding to a halt during a visit by Vice President Biden. We rolled with the punches, as you’ll see below.

Special thanks to our host, Baraonda, as well as all party volunteers and special guests. We kicked off the book in style and hopefully sent folks away with some great memories.
