PROGRAM DESCRIPTION Pizza is central to so many cultural touch points: from movies, to books, to television and even sports — it permeates them all. In the United States alone, we consume three billion pizzas a year — that’s more than nine pizzas for every single person who lives here. Thom and James Elliot—brothers, authors, and self-proclaimed “pizza pilgrims”—have spent years researching the best pizza that the world has to offer—and producing their own in 16 restaurants in the United Kingdom. Join them as they celebrate National Pizza Day on February 9. In conversation with Scott Wiener, pizza expert and founder of Scott’s Pizza Tours, they examine the wildly popular food’s myriad forms and document its cultural significance. They also trace all things pizza, from its history and family tree to world-famous pizzerias, and even explore pizza variants we love to hate (hamburger crust pizza anyone?). The Elliots’ book Pizza: Recipes, Stories, History, Places, People, Love (Hardie Grant/Quadrille) is available for purchase.
