Welcome to the Pizza Quest Photo Gallery!
As the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words", so we're going to let these photos, and the ones to come, help tell the stories for us. The Gallery will serve as our Pizza Quest photo album, capturing the flavors of each journey we go on.
We also want to encourage you to send us your best pizza photos and we'll create a page for our favorites--be sure to give us the who, what, where and any other relevant background info. To post photos and join other discussions go to the PQ Forum and create threads, or join them and start sharing! Also, don't forget to friend us and post photos on the Pizza Quest Facebook page!
Pizza and Obsession is our first Gallery page. It is a compilation of photos from our maiden quest, during the late summer of 2009. We launched from Los Angeles and made our way up the coast to San Francisco. If anyone doubted that there was good pizza on the west coast, think again! We not only found what Peter calls "memorable" pizza, but also, great fish tacos, coastal oysters, and gourmet, trend-setting ice cream along the way. To see the photos and a list of the places we visited, click "read more."
Here is a list of places pictured below and some of the people we met along the way.
