1.2.3. Alone at Pizza Expo 2023

Hey there— Alex here,

I’m writing to you from the Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, so this is going to be short and sweet!

These conventions are a lot like life. You make them whatever you want them to be.

This year is the first time I have ever gone by myself. Much different than all my prior years, where I would be accompanied by 4 or 5 team members. It’s been a nice change, and being alone has forced me into some more vulnerable positions that I would have never put myself in if surrounded by friends.

All alone! Whether you like it or not, alone is something you’ll be quite a lot! –  Dr. Seuss

It has helped me see the Pizza Expo with new eyes, and it has genuinely been a good time. I’ve gotten to hang out with old friends and make new ones.

I have gotten a lot more out of this year’s expo by just changing my perspective.

Sometimes it is good to shake things up, do the complete opposite and see what happens. I didn’t know what to expect this year but I like where it’s going.

I compete in the non-traditional category today. Wish me luck! More on that next week.



Love, crust, and pizza dust,

Alex Koons
