Plant-based Pepperoni Recipe, Building Relationships & The Joy of Pizza




I listened to the Smart Pizza Marketing Podcast with Dan Richer this week.


It’s always awesome to hear someone that you respect talk about their relationship with pizza and food.


He recently wrote a book called “The Joy of Pizza” that I am anxiously waiting on my copy to arrive. It’s very cool to watch someone’s journey and be inspired by the way they have walked their path.


It’s a lot easier to believe you can do something when you have seen it done before.


I’ll let you know how the book goes!



You don’t have to go to school for 8 years to be Dr. Seitan.


I am super excited to share this very simple Vegan Pepperoni recipe that should blow your mind.


“Tough times don’t last, tough people do.”


Matt, one of my best buds, a founder of AK Consulting, and a lot of the reason you receive these emails told me this a couple weeks back.


It’s been a very rough road getting Hot Tongue open and it’s because of people like Matt who have kept me from going absolutely insane.


It’s important to surround yourself with people who support you, and push you into realms of thought and experience you might not otherwise have. It’s also important to be that person for others!








I write about a lot of things that have nothing to do with pizza.


My belief and time is spent on the people part, that’s where the real magic is. Building relationships.


Anyone can make great food. Not all restaurants will feel like a friend.


It should feel like home, and home is where I want to be.


That’s what it’s about for me.

Love, crust and pizza dust,
