This week on Pizza Party is talking pizza photography! With guest co-host Sarah Jacobs along for the episode, the duo welcomes Cyrus Summerlin, co-founder of the Push for Pizza app as well as photographer JonPaul Douglass of the Pizza in the Wild series. Cyrus explains that Push for Pizza was created by a group of pizza lovers that wanted to cut out the process of calling to order a pizza. The group also wanted to sidestep the hassle of websites like Grubhub and Seamless, and thus the convenient app came to be. JonPaul shares how he began photographing pizza and how he was inspired to show pizza in a different light than most food photographers. Based in Los Angeles, JonPaul also gives his take on the West Coast pizza scene. This program was brought to you by The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.
