It is gift in and of itself to see the smiles on everyone's faces in those pictures, knowing that a splendid time was had by all; brought about by a deep love for everything involving pizza.

While on the one hand I would have immensely enjoyed being in the presence of such "pizza greats" at the TPSII, I would have at the same time felt embarrassed at my novice skills! What an impressive array of talent and pies!!

Craig is an amazing teacher --- we all know that. But to be willing to open up his home to fellow forum members as he has done now twice...well that just goes beyond words. Nice job everyone!

John, talk about novice skills.  I couldn't make a round pie to save my life!  And I couldn't even blame it on the alcohol.   Too much blackstone and not enough wfo for me. :-D

Sorry Chau, I'm not buying it! You have too much history that says otherwise!

I just uploaded a bunch of photos and some video from the Summit to my flickr account.  Nothing has been edited yet--there are a few blurry photos and my video is somewhat shaky and sometimes was activated by accident.  New phone and I'm still getting used to it.  But if you want to peruse...

The first photo in the set is not from the Summit, it's actually Craig and me with some of the 37 Cooks who live in the Houston area, after dinner.

I'll try to edit later tonight.

Shortly after I immigrated to the United States of America in 1984, the very first T-shirt that I purchased here (on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA) had an imprint on it that read, "DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS". That's where I will be tomorrow!

I have a feeling that it is going to be an indelible event!

Dear friends, I'm currently at the Houston airport. About 20 minutes ago, the airline notified me that my flight to San Diego has been delayed by one hour. So I started walking around the terminal and suddenly I came upon this shirt at a gift shop. Perfect gift for my wife!

There should be more than one.

There are a couple others, but they are just blurbs, due to operator error.  The second one linked might make you woozy in the beginning.  I have a year to practice using my new phone, or perhaps even splurge on a nice camera for next year's Summit, and I promise there will be plenty more video!

Diana, sheer torture and punishment for me to watch these videos and pics and not making it down there. Hope to make it next year and meet you and the others in person. Talked with Craig a bit this afternoon and promised next one I would bring homemade cured meats and capicola

I look forward to meeting you and tasting your homemade cured meats and capicola!  I must say I had the greatest time there.  These people are the finest kind of folks and Craig is quite the host.  He's a pretty funny guy and was kind enough to show me around some of Houston's markets.  I scored some great cheeses and fennel pollen while I was there!
I just hope to be more accomplished with the camera next time.  I really wish I had captured Chau on video making mozzarella.

If you're ever looking for Scot (pizza dr), he's the one with flourbelly.  :-D Seriously though, he really worked the oven well.

John (Serpentelli) couldn't make it, so he sent Jefferson in his stead. Amazing generosity abounded.

Diana (dhorst) - the discover of Aleppo (worthy of the Nobel Prize for Pizza, I might add) - brought the mystical spice, an amazing selection of cheeses and cured meats, and the wonderful garlic scapes. Thank you so much!!!

You need lots of refreshments when it's 106F outside.
