Hello all, Iím Tom and this is truly a fantastic forum. 

I am currently living in Minneapolis, Minnesota and originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I have recently retired from the Air Force after 21 years of active duty service.  After living in northern Italy for four years I miss real pizza and want to learn to make my own.  Iím not a beginner when it comes to cooking; I have an Associateís Degree in Culinary Arts from the Culinary Institute of America, but I am new to wood fired ovens.  There is nothing like the smell and taste of a fresh pizza from a wood fired oven.
I would enjoy owning a pizzeria one day.

Nice to meet everyone!  Tom

Hi Tom,

Congratulations on your retirement, and thanks for your service to our country.  I think you will really enjoy this forum with your culinary background, experience in Italy, and interest in pizza.  This forum is a huge storehouse of knowledge about pizza. After several years of reading the threads I still stumble upon threads I've never seen before with really interesting information.  Enjoy!
