Farm Pizza @ A Brewery Outside Of Austin

Everything is bigger in Texas. Including its breweries. And Jester King Brewery (13187 Fitzhugh Rd) is no exception. The craft beer haven is situated on 165 acres of farmland about 30 minutes outside of Austin. There are playgrounds for the kids, multiple seating areas — in a barn and out in the fields — and an events calendar that rivals that of a small town (on the evening I was there, so many revelers were playing “Drag Bingo” that they ...

The 12th Annual NYC Pizza Run

This past weekend, I hosted the 12th annual NYC Pizza Run. The pies were provided by Table 87 and our first place finisher set a new course record: 18:17.

Once my son was asleep each night, it was a treat to be able to walk downstairs — baby monitor in hand — and enjoy a pie and ...

Saying Goodbye To Di Fara’s Dom DeMarco, A Pizza Legend

Anyone who knows me or has read this blog over the past 14 years is likely aware of the fact that Di Fara is my favorite pizza place in the world. In fact, a visit there in the early 2000s was one of the inspirations that led me to start IDreamOfPizza. So I was deeply saddened to hear the news that Dom DeMarco — the shop’s founder and pizza maker for the past 50+ years — passed away this week ...
