The Tony Gemignani Interview: What's New in Pizzaland...

  • Tony G. knows pizza.

    He is an incredible pizza resource. I have been fortunate to speak with Tony on a number of occasions.

    He is a nine time World Pizza Champion. Tony won the Triple Crown of Pizza. In Italy no less!

    Tony is not one to sit back. He is always pushing the envelope of pizza.

    If you love pizza, you will love Tony Gemignani.

Tony Gemignani presents his award winning pizza to the judges in Italy

He was gracious enough to speak with me for my Legends of Pizza series.

You can listen to another interview I did with Tony right now...

Listen as he explains:

  • How he had to make his dough in his hotel room during the Italian pizza competition.
  • One of the judges was the Pope's personal pizza maker
  • How he made it into the Guinness Book of World Records
  • His latest project: the first ever Certified Pizza School in the U.S.
  • His take on the New Haven Pizza (Wooster Street):
    Yes, he went to Modern, Pepe's and Sally's.
