Author bio Peggy Paul Casella
is a cookbook writer and editor and the creator of ThursdayNightPizza.com, a food blog centered on making weekly pizzas from scratch. In her editing/writing life, she wrangles hundreds--sometimes thousands--of recipes each month from chefs, writers, and publishers all over the country; writes a regular column on seasonal produce for a local Philadelphia magazine; and contributes sporadically to other publications. Peggy started Thursday Night Pizza in 2014 as a way to play with seasonal ingredients and test out all sorts of weird and wonderful flavor combinations, mad scientist style. She grew up watching the original Teenage Mutant Ninja
cartoon and considers Michelangelo a true pizza visionary. Photographer/Illustrator bio Albert Yee
is a professional photographer and devoted lover of food, particularly pizza. Upon moving from New York to his adopted home of Philadelphia, he promptly went on a frenzied taste test of twenty or so pizza shops to find a new "home slice" to enjoy. When not eating a slice, he can be found photographing some part of the Mid-Atlantic region's food economy, whether it be on a farm, at a restaurant, or in a market. He now lives blocks away from the nation's first and only pizza museum and what many have come to consider the country's best pizza pie.
