My pizza adventures:
I started baking pizzas when I was 13 years of age, helping out my father after school and on weekends at the pizza shop. I started from the bottom, as the little guy in the back kitchen washing dishes, making tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes, whcih I balanced out with fresh herbs and spices, making the daily pizza dough, and cutting fresh veggies. At the age of 14, I was promoted to pizza maker on the front line.
I’m a second generation pizza maker following my father who learned to make pizzas in Italy in the late ‘60s. Bringing his pizza knowledge to Sweden in the early ‘70s, he is one of the first 20 people to start a pizza shop in Sweden. Today, there are over 4000+ pizza shops in Sweden.
Pizza is my greatest passion so I decided to expand my pizza knowledge by competing in the World Pizza Championships in Las Vegas. My idea was simple. Don’t focus too heavily on winning and take it as a learning experience. I wanted to see what the rest of the world was up to. I never thought I would win, but I was lucky and got 1st place in the World International(Open II Region). It was one of the best moments in life!
