About

 Help Publish a Stellar Book on Pittsburgh Pizza!

Hi there! It's your Boy Danny T. Maybe you don't know my name, but it's possible you know my work. But I'm writing a pizza book. 

Maybe you read my story about how Caliente won their first World Pizza Championship?

Maybe you read my coverage of the Pizza Cono story that opened (and quickly closed) in Squirrel Hill? 

Or, maybe you've read one of my reviews of Spak Brothers, Pizza Taglio, Driftwood Oven, Mineo's, Michigan & Trumble, Fazio's, Graziano's, Spirit Lodge, Pizza Boat, Mama Lucia's, etc. 

I've been writing about pizza for ten years and I've done a lot of interviews and talked to many of the people behind the pizzas of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has changed a lot in these past 10 years. As Pittsburgh has changed, Pittsburgh Pizza has changed with it. Some of the best pizza shops didn't exist ten years ago. Can you believe that? The Pittsburgh pizza landscape exploded.

Luckily, I've been covering it specifically and intently. In this book you'll read about 13 of the newest Pizza Shops plus a few that are no longer with us. You'll also learn about the people behind these shops and the infamous Pizza Dojo event. 

Inside the Book

This book is a guide to help you understand the origin of some of these pizza places and what makes them so great. You'll have access to:

  • Beautiful photos shot by yours truly that capture the essence of each shop. 
  • Details on what to order at each pizza shop, their specialities and what they're known for.
  • A brief history of the pizza shop.
  • An empty space for you to add your own tasting notes for each pizzeria. It's a wonderful way for you to chronicle your own experience.
  • Insights on some of the newest most delicious pizza shops like Pizza Taglio, Spak Brothers, Caliente, Driftwood Oven, Slice on Broadway, Pizza Badamo's, Iron Born and more!

Download a preview of the book to get a taste. This preview includes a brief introduction and a chapter on Driftwood Oven.

A Sense of Pizza Adventure

This book isn't meant to sit on your coffee table or in the bottom of a closet. Instead, you'll use this book to inspire pizza adventures and help guide you to some exotic, delicious pizza places. 

Plan an outing with some old friends. Take a date on a tour of pizza places. Broaden your expertise and become the next great pizza journalist or pizza blogger!
