Matt Rogers of 800 Degrees Wood Fired Pizza on the perfection of pizza.
I must confess that as we watched Matt Rogers, chef/co-owner of 800 Degrees Wood Fired Pizza, stoke the fire in his pizza oven, my mind began to wander. The smell of burning wood and rising dough conjured memories of the incredible pizzas we ate in Italy. It’s worth stating that because it illustrates Matt’s, and his crew’s, passion for their work. A passion that culminates in incredibly authentic reproductions of classic Neapolitan pizzas. In this interview, Matt tells us how 800 Degrees blends elements of a fine dining experience with traditional Neapolitan pizza making techniques to create new interpretations of the classics.
