Editor-in-Chief
(Expo Wrap-up
pp. 48-50)

Topp't applies its own
unique twist on the
fast-casual pizzeria. It's
a concept move that
will be paramount in
the fast-casual segment as leaders jockey
for position.

The electricity in the
air at the start of this
year's International
Pizza Expo was off the
charts. There was so
much anticipation and
excitement that I found
myself downright giddy
just thinking about how
impactful the next few
days were going to
be. This show did not
disappoint!

Owner,
Avalanche Pizza
(Ooze Brothers
pp. 36-38

Owner, Andolini's
Pizzeria in Tulsa, OK
(Return of Red Sauce,
pp. 34-35)

Pairing cheeses is an
important part of menu
engineering. It defrays
the high cost of using
a lot of strong cheese
while still giving you
an image boosting
product to offer to an
increasingly food savvy
customer base.

Never underestimate
the significance of
sauce in your pizza.
It's what brings it all
together. Skimping
on making a quality
sauce is like building
a skyscraper on sand.
