The Pizza Champion
This week on Pizza Party, host Talia Ralph welcomes Tony Gemignani the 11 time World Pizza Champ and author of "The Pizza Bible." He talks to Talia about how he found his love for pizza at an early age and how he wielded his love into an impressive pizza-centered career. To date, Tony has won three world titles in pizza cooking and eight in pizza acrobatics AKA tossing dough at uncanny heights and speeds. He holds two pizza-related Guinness World Record titles and in the last few years, Tony has revitalized his slice of California and Las Vegas with a plethora of restaurants. After the break, Tony explains to Talia how he strives for perfection and that this drive has led him to keep pushing his career forward. Talia also puts him on the spot, asking if he has any plans to bring his pizza to NYC. Tune in to hear highlights from "The Pizza Bible," predicted pizza trends, as well as some of his favorite slices in the big apple.
