Thanks for posting those Norma.
I do find it surprising that, after all these years, people still refer to the continuing shift towards quality of various food and drink items (bread, coffee, tea, beer, liquor, etc, etc) as going "upscale" or other similar references.
If anything, the new wave of artisinal pizzas is anything but new. Many food and beverage items were made like this all the time many years ago before issues like mass marketing, corporate mergers and buyouts, suburban sprawl and such nearly obliterated individualistic, hand crafted items by the mid 70s or so.
These pizzas are more decidedly old-school than anything else and I hope the trend continues and infects other food items as well. --K
