My name is Vern, I live in Eugene Oregon, and my hobby is cooking. Pizza is probably my favorite food, and I'm very interested in learning how to make it at home. I will pretty much eat any kind of pizza, but am particularly interested in the thinner, crispier versions that you find in the Pizzerias here in the Northwest where I grew up. My wife and honeymooned in Italy, hitting Florence and Rome, and I was actually a bit disappointed with the pizza I ate there, it just doesn't quite fit into my notion of what pizza is.
This seems to be a great site with a lot of people passionate about pizza, and I'm glad I found it.
