Pizza Obsessives: Matthew "BKMatt" Hyland

If you've been hanging around this corner of the internet pizzascape, chances are you've run into Matt Hyland, a.k.a. BKMatt, before.

Pizza Obsessives: Kate Andersen, Slice's New Contributing Editor

In the few short months since I gleefully took on the role of Slice editor (aka Lady Slice), I've been lucky enough to add Associate Editor of Serious Eats to my honorific.

Let's get to know our fellow pie enthusiast JimmyG a little better with a warm, er, I mean 'hot seat' welcome.—MS Name: Jim Gerhold Location: Lawrence, KS What type of pizza do you prefer? My favorite is a regular New York pizza pie. But I also enjoy a good Neapolitan pizza, or what I call a Sicilia style pizza: semolina or a semolina mix replacing the bread or 00 flour; a young and melt-able sheep's milk cheese replacing the mozzarella.
