STARTING A FOOD TRUCK
I’ve noticed PMQ runs stories on small local operators, so I’m reaching out to ask if you will be coming
to the Houston area soon. At the end of last year, I
built a pizza truck, and it’s now fully operational. Our
restaurant’s name is IL Primo Pizza & Wings, and I
have named our truck IL Primo Pizza Truck. If you’re
interested in learning more, I would like to talk to you
about it. ;ank you for your time.
IL Primo Pizza & Wings
We’re eager to learn more about your operation, Si. ;anks
for contacting us, and we look forward to sharing your
story with our readers in a future issue.
NOTHING LIGHTS ME UP LIKE PIZZA
Although I don’t technically work in the pizza industry, I am passionate about making, learning and
championing everything to do with pizza. I have my
own wood-fired pizza oven and procure my “00” flour
from Italy. And I get excited every time your magazine comes to my mailbox. I’ve learned useful tips
from Tom “;e Dough Doctor” Lehmann and love
the passion that Rick Hynum puts behind his From
the Editor column. Recently, my subscription lapsed,
but I hope you will consider letting me receive your
magazine in the mail again as a paid-subscription
opportunity. I’ve attached a photo of a Chicago-style
deep-dish pizza I made in my oven. Although I make
my living in the aircraft industry, nothing lights me
up more than when I get to talk about pizza!
That’s a great-looking oven and a beautiful pizza,
Richard. ;ank you for your interest in PMQ. We’re
happy to renew your subscription and hope to try one
of your pies in person—especially if or when you open
your own restaurant!
In our April 2017 edition, a feature article on Toppers Pizza, “The Price Is Fixed,” included a photograph of a pizza that actually belongs to Toppers Pizza Place, headquartered in
Oxnard, California. The two companies are not related in any way.
PMQ regrets the error.
Pint-sized pizza spinning prodigies Michael and Nicholas Testa,
ages 12 and 10, scratched one off their bucket list when they
tossed dough for Jimmy Fallon on NBC’s The Tonight Show
in late April. The sons of Carmine Testa, owner of Carmine’s
Pizza Factory in Jersey City, New Jersey, have become fixtures
on social media, thanks to a viral video that netted 26 million
views on Facebook, and wowed the audience earlier this year
on the Today show. But appearing on the same night with
fellow Tonight Show guest Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame
must have been a truly magical moment for the youngsters.
