Next Episode of Pizza Masters is
Sal Basille and Francis Garcia are first cousins and best friends. Together they own some of the most successful pizza shops in New York City. The cousins are always on the search for the best food in town -- and not just pizza. Join in the fun as the cousins set off on a culinary adventure to find the greatest spots across the country. From mom and pop joints to legendary establishments, these "Pizza Masters" know good pizza and good food when they find it, and are always up for having a good time along the way.
Francis Garcia and Sal Basille are headed to Bozeman, Mont., for a city slicker adventure on a working ranch. Their excursion starts with a home-cooked meal of sourdough bread, baked beans and beef tenderloin at the G Bar M Ranch. The next morning, they head into town for a hearty cowboy breakfast that's washed down with a huckleberry milkshake. They mosey over to Red Tractor Pizza to get a taste of their "farm to pizza" pies, and then end their trip with homemade strawberry rhubarb pie.
It's opening day of a new Artichoke in Brooklyn but Fran cannot find his lucky hat, and he won't open without it. The day before he and Sal went on one of their famous food tours of favorite restaurants in and around New York, so they retrace their day looking for the hat. The day started in the old neighborhood on Staten Island and the famous Clam Pizza at Lee's Tavern. Then, they headed to Zeppieri's & Sons in the Bronx to satisfy their sweet tooth with world famous Italian sfogliatelles. Finally, they capped off their mouthwatering trip with dinner at Fornos of Spain in Newark, N.J., where they feasted on authentic Seafood Paella and Codfish Croquettes.
Fran and Sal are in the Bay Area to celebrate the second anniversary of the Berkeley, Calif., location of Artichoke Basille's. To reward the staff for all of their hard work, they are surprising them with an anniversary party on a beautiful vineyard in Napa. While in San Francisco, the guys check out Goat Hill Pizza, a favorite in town for 40 years. On their way out to Napa, the guys come across The Choke Coach, a food truck that serves nothing but artichoke-based dishes. The guys finally make it to Charter Oak Winery in Napa and meet their hosts Robert and Layla Fanucci. In the end, everyone arrives, the guys make a toast to Artichoke Berkeley, and food and drink flow as the sun sets in Napa.
On their way to Las Vegas for a convention, Fran discovers that his cousin Sal has booked them on a connecting flight through St. Louis, with an eight-hour layover. But, there is a method to Sal's madness. He has mapped out iconic eateries in St. Louis to try out, starting with Tiffany's Diner on Rt. 66, where they've been serving up "Slingers", traditional St. Louis breakfast, since 1960. Then, the guys head over to Russell's on Macklind to try a unique spin on gooey butter cake. No layover is complete without discovering the local pizza scene, so Sal and Fran head to Frank & Helen's for a slice or two of their famous St. Louis-style pizza and Toasted Ravioli.
