Chris Bianco a Pizzaiolo's Pizzaiolo
(You can hear an excerpt of the Chris Bianco interview
Chris Bianco is an incredible pizza maker and just an all around good person.
Here's what you may not know about Chris: he makes all of his own mozzarella and he makes all of his own dough: by hand.
The entire interview with Chris is here:
The following is from a phone call with Cris after Legends was recorded...
My phone call with Chris Bianco from Pizza News, January 2007
The phone rang a few days before Christmas. "Hello", I said,
"Albert, this is Chris Bianco."
"Hey Chris, how are you doing?"
"Fine, fine. I just wanted to say, thanks Albert. I appreciate all of the work you are doing. I liked the way Legends of Pizza turned out".
I was humbled. Here is one of the finest pizzaiolo in the country, calling me up to say "thanks".
Chris as usual was easy to talk with. I had to ask him about his recent appearance on Oprah.
I can't remember his exact words, but basically, he told me it was no big deal.
No big deal. The guy shows up on Oprah. He is seen by millions and millions of people.
And to Chris Bianco, its no big deal. Its just another day in Pizzaland.
Hey, if I ever show up on Oprah, I may give you my autograph. Maybe.
But not Chris Bianco. Chris Bianco is one of the most modest people on the planet. It doesn't matter to him that he was featured on the most popular television show in the World. It really does not, matter. He just wants to do what he does best, make pizza. He is a true pizzaiolo, a role model and wonderful person.

That's Chris Bianco. He's just interested in making pizza. He is a true master pizzaiolo.
We had an amazing conversation. He shared more of his pizza philosophy with me. Thank you Chris. I am honored and again, humbled.
I am very proud of Legends of Pizza. The interview with Chris Bianco contained in Legends of Pizza Volume 1, is fantastic.
