My Pie Monday: Cherry Tomatoes, BBQ Chicken, Chili Cheese Dog Pizza(?!), and More!

Summer is coming on in a big way and it shows on My Pie Monday. Garden grown basil makes an appearance on Burger365's pie, and cherry tomatoes appear on pizzas by dhorst and Norma427. Jamesws gets the grill going for pizza and I take a pizza for the grill indoors. The flavors of summer arrive in the form of barbecue chicken from Kitchennoob, and a chili cheese dog topped pie from Amusebouche1! The ladies at Passion4pizza "keep it simple" with a white pie and Chef Snausy makes cast-iron skillet pizza. More

[Photograph: Cary Steiner/Passion-4-Pizza.com] Cary Steiner of Passion-4-Pizza sends this one in: I made this pizza on day two of Tony Gemignani's pizza class in San Francisco, in the wonderful 900°F oven at Tony's Pizza Napoletana.

Quote and Comment of the Day: 'I'm Disturbed by This Movement'

I was one foot out the door, running to catch a plane yesterday when I posted a list of links that included Passion-4-Pizza's "Twenty Minutes with Chris Bianco" interview. But an interesting item from Cary and Lillian Steiner's chat really deserved the kind of time I didn't have to give it. Luckily, seriouspizza did my job for me in the comments: Twenty minutes with Chris Bianco. [P4P]: "We start to look at it, turn it upside down, check the upskirt, the downskirt, all this kind of crap, it's really disturbing. I'm disturbed by this movement." —Chris Bianco Me too.
