Hello, my name is Albert Grande.

I am a pizza man. My passion is pizza. Here is my website:

I want to speak about Spiritual Pizza.

The Magic of Believing by Claude Bristol is one of my favorite books.

I have read this book many times and I always seem to get something new out of it. If I know I need to wait in a line, such as at a bank or food shopping, I will take the book along to read. This seems to make the line move faster.

Simply put, The Magic of Believing states, the energy of the subconscious mind can help individuals achieve any goal. If you believe it, it will happen. This book contains countless examples of the hidden power of the subconscious mind and how it can influence our lives.

Bristol speaks about two people cooking an item using the same ingredients, and the same recipe. One item turns out to be a failure while the other is a successful culinary achievement.
The successful cook, saw the finished product in their mind's eye. This successful cook, baked their heart and soul in to the finished dish. They created a spiritual link with the food.

Making pizza, is no different. You must put your spirit into each pizza you create. The great pizzaiolos such as Gennaro Lombardi (Lombardi's), Frank Pepe (Pepe's) and Salvatore Consiglio (Sally's Apizza), knew this, and made pizza for the body as well as the soul. They were masters of Spiritual Pizza.

Spiritual pizza
is made when you connect with your pizza on a higher level. You connect with source energy. You pray. You feel God's energy.

You put a part of yourself into each pizza. Make all of your pizza, Spiritual Pizza. Your pizza will taste better. Your pizza will be better.

How true! Homemade pizza became my favorite after being let down by the delivery people, bringing me lukewarm, poorly made pizza. I started making my own, and finding has brought me to a new level. I now grill ALL my pizza on a charcoal grill! I make a pizza with red sauce, and a pizza with a white sauce that I have concocted. Everybody says my pizza is "to die for". I say, it's to LIVE for! Thanks for all of your work and encouragement. Pizza on earth!

Albert -- What is true for life is also true for pizza. It is unfortunate that we live in a world where passion is in such short supply. You can always tell the level of passion a pizziola puts into their pie by the look, the aroma, and the taste of the pie. You can get a meal almost anywhere, but a great pizza experience can only be provided by someone with passion.
