What's this pizza maestro thing?
Loving all things Chicago (especially pizza), back in 1999, Brian began perfecting his own deep dish pizza. He tried numerous recipes week after week, would eat one slice, sometimes only one bite and then pass the rest off to his neighbors. "My neighbors loved me!" With months of trial, the help of some of his more than willing taste testing friends, the Chef at Pizzeria Due (sister restaurant to Pizzeria Uno), his great pal the late Chef Stutz and a few others, he nailed it! Now he's cooking for and entertaining guests with his one of as kind dinner show experience, Magic by the Slice.
Brian donated Magic by the Slice to a charity for their live auction. While in attendance, he was less than impressed with how it was sold to the audience and felt he could have done better. It just so happens he had already taught himself to chant like an auctioneer for a featured trick in his one man show. As luck would have it, he was introduced to the right people and his auctioneer career was born!
