Iannucci moved to Kauai in the 80’s and was distressed to find he could not get
a decent slice of his favorite food: pizza.
He went on a
pizza quest and made the commitment to learn to make great pizza. At first it
was at home in his kitchen, then he built a brick oven in his driveway. He began
by making pizza for friends, family, neighbors and anyone else who loved pizza.
He made lots of pizzas and most
importantly he shared them.
satisfied with his skills, he traveled the world learning the craft. As Tommy
explains he visited known and unknown pizzerias. He trained in New York, Rome,
Las Vegas and even trained in Naples under pizza master Enzo Croccia. The result of his quest was to bring great pizza to
the Island of Kauai and create his own pizzeria.

This is an excerpt of a bread workshop presented by Peter Reinhart and John Arena.
This was a hands on demo as well as a presentation. Peter and John explain that if you make pizza you can easily make artisan bread without to much of a change in formula.
They also explain the importance of using bakers per cents when you make bread and pizza. The fact is that when both started making bread and pizza for their businesses they used measurement instead of weight. Using bakers per cents instead of weight gives you much more consistency in your final product.
This workshop was presented at Pizza Expo 2017. For more information go to: http://pizzaexpo.com
John revealed to me both he and Peter will be back again at Pizza Expo with another workshop.
