Naples Comes to Seattle

The inaugural Neapolitan Pizza Forum will be held in Seattle June 24–29. Why Seattle, you ask? Well, there are several similarities between Naples and Seattle that make this city an ideal choice for VPN Americas' initial pizza convention.

Scenes from a Pizza-Making Class with Gerri Sarnataro at the Institute of Culinary Education

Some of the fresh ingredients and a peek at the pizza upskirt. If you've ever made pizza from scratch, you'll realize the importance of working with your hands. From forming the dough, to kneading it after it rises, to stretching it out on a peel, and finally topping it with ingredients—there's no doubt that the hands make it happen.
