In this video I speak with Tom Ianucci of Pietro’s Pizza on Kauai.
The interview was recorded at Pizza Expo in Las Vegas. Tom who is also a Pastor, explains how his journey with pizza started over 30 years ago when he moved to Kauai and could find no great pizza. Tom took it upon himself to not only lear about making pizza but how to start a pizza business.
Tommy 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.
Not 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
The pizza business part started at Pizza Expo…let’s get his story….
