Was going though articles Madeline sent me in 2015.  Don't think this one was posted before.  Have other articles Madeline sent if anyone is interested.

This article about “How Pizza Conquered America” was in this months Scholastic Scope magazine, and was written my Anna Starecheski.  The article talks about Frank Mastro “The Pizza King” and different things Frank Mastro did to promote the ovens he invented and other things.  It also says Vincent Mastro invented the frozen pizza dough to be used at pizzerias.  If I recall right Frank Mastro invented the frozen pizza dough, but could be wrong.  Vinnie Mastro sent me this article, but said he didn't contribute to the article.

Norma:  Thanks for sharing this article.  It finally gives credit to Frank Mastro for all he did with making pizza what it is today.  I am happy for his daughter Madeline who was so wanting this to be legitimized in todays pizza world.  Also I am glad they gave you credit for the PMQ article.  I was upset your name was not on the byline as you have done more work to bring the Mastro legacy to today's generation.  Walter

Walter,

Adam told me they were working on the article a couple of weeks ago.  Yes, glad that Frank Mastro finally got credit for all he did.  I am also happy for Madeline too.  That was okay that my name was not on the PMQ byline.

This morning, I came across this recent article at the New York Times on the ubiquitous NY slice:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/16/dining/slice-joint-pizza-new-york-city.html

Norma and also Walter may want to take note of the mention of Frank Mastro and his contributions to the NY pizza.

Peter,

Thanks so much for the link that has the mention of Frank Mastro.  Think it was Scott Wiener (that I finally convinced about Frank Mastro), that is spreading the word about Frank Mastro inventing the first gas deck oven for NY style pizzas.  At first it was a tough sell.   :-D

Scott also let me preview his private collections of pizza photos and ads for old pizzerias.  Sure was interesting.  :)  Wish I would be able to get to one of Scott's lectures on NYC pizzas. 

Maybe you might be interested in listening to this podcast.  It is about A Slice of History.  Pizza in NYC

Norma,

Thanks for the link to the podcast. I got a kick out of the people who called in to the radio station with their favorite $1 a slice recommendations.
