Las Vegas, NV - March 4-8
Wow, what a time we had at this year's Pizza Expo 2019!
Every year the show gets bigger and better, with new vendors, old friends, great food, new innovations, new recipes, games and just good ole building new friendships and solidifying old ones.
This year, The Great Outdoor Pizza Ovens Company met with several new vendors that we are excited to add and represent. As you know, we only sell and market the best quality ovens for the best taste.
As part of our new offerings we will be expanding our product categories to give you, our distinguished clientele, the variety and quality to fit your individual lifestyle and outdoor living space.
Many have been asking for more portable and small counter-top ovens. In the coming weeks we will be introducing several new high quality models to choose from.
This year, we are also going to be adding new classes and educational resources, as well as new blog recipes.
At the show, I sat in with Chef Theo Kalogeracos from Australia on how to make awesome dessert pizza! They were simply delicious, easy to make and a great dessert alternative to make for your guests after dinner paired with a little liqueur.
Keeping it Fresh and Simple
The one thing that really hit home with me is if you want to create a memorable, delicious home made pizza, keep it simple. It's all in the dough and the less toppings the better.
I sat in with Chef Leo's demo on making great dough with just "00" flour, good Italian water, some yeast and a little salt with optional olive oil.
Once your dough is prepared and ready, then all you need is some exquisite sauce, a little cheese and fresh basil.
Below, Chef Roberto continued to treat us with simple, yet elegant pies that were consistent with heat and flavor. Suffice it say, I had many slices (shown above) and rarely ventured to the other vendors using electric and conveyor pizza makers.
You need the fire!
All in all we had an excellent time and are now preparing for the Dallas Home Patio and BBQ show where we are meeting with some other vendors that also have new ovens coming to market.
Stay tuned, 2019 is becoming an exciting year for Great Outdoor Pizza Ovens!
