When Hurricane Sandy devastated the coastal areas of Queens and Brooklyn, there were many economic victims. But Nicole Russell, who had already lost her job, decided not to be a victim and, instead, started making original pizzas baked in her home oven, and sold them out the back door, like her signature Kiss Mi' Converse Jerk-Chicken Pizza. Thus, Last Dragon Pizza was born. Before long, Nicole had earned a big following and got invited to join a delegation of pizza luminaries to compete in Italy on the world stage in an international competition. There’s a lot more to this amazing Lazarus story, so join us on this episode of Pizza Quest with Peter Reinhart, as Nicole tells Peter how it all came to pass.
