Theo Kalogeracos, author and multi-award winning pizza makerarrived at Spearwood Library, on Thursday 8 August, armed with a stack of pizza boxes (containing pizzas!), some mini pizza ovens, and copies of his two books, to talk about making the perfect pizza, winning the World Pizza Championships, his pizza stores – Little Caesars Pizzerias (now Theo and Co Pizzeria), and his two pizza cookbooks: Theo & Co : the search for the perfect pizza & Theo & Co. take 2 : the search for the perfect pizza continuesAbly assisted on the night by Sidney, the manager of the Hillarys Little Caesars store, who, while Theo talked, kept the audience’s stomachs entertained by handing out delicious pizza samples.
While you’ve missed out on the pizza samples, you do get a chance to watch Theo’s very entertaining talk in which you‘ll discover:
  • the ingredients for a perfect pizza dough
  • whether or not Theo’s dessert pizzas are suitable to eat cold (the answer includes this quote ““Pizza’s like sex: good or bad, it’s still good”)
  • whether or not you should put Vegemite on a pizza 
  • while Tame Impala may be pretty good at playing psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music, they are no experts in the field of pizza toppings
  • and how one library staff member’s husband used his pizza tossing skills to impress the ladies (it was the sixties)

There is also an audio only podcast version (mp3) of Theo’s talk which you can download (but you already knew that, because I posted it on here last week). Save it to you portable media player and listen to it on the way to work.
