A day of Firsts for Fist of Flour

February 9, 2010 2Comments by the 411

Well, here we are in cyberspace. This is indeed my first official blog. If you have found this page, then you already know, this is the brand new official site for the Fist of Flour Pizza Company. It is a work in progress. Info and graphics and all that blingy stuff to come.

What is Fist of Flour anyway? I’m glad you asked. I’ve spent the last two years developing my home-made recipe for creating gourmet pizzas, here in my hand-built wood fired pizza oven, at a secret location. I’ve been in love with pizza for my entire conscious life. Some of my fondest memories of childhood occurred in a number of establishments here in the bay area, and I have continued the search for the perfect pie into my adult life across several continents. So much so that, after taking a class with Brent Sumner at the Institute of Mosaic art in Oakland CA, I learned how to make my own wood-fired oven. It’s now time to put my knowledge and experience to the test and fulfill my dream of becoming a pizza chef. I invite you to read along and follow my journey.

Eventually, this area of the Blog will be filled with information regarding upcoming events. I’m still working on that part of the business. I still need to set up the mailing list, and ooh, so much to do. So look around at my other pages, and bookmark this NOW!

    What’s up? Nice oven. Looks like it was a lot of fun to build. Hope I wasn’t too obnoxious at the park today. Definitely want to get my hands on some of that pizza.
