Pizza and Everything on It - Gourmet Recipes
Fondness Network Continues Growth with Addition of www.allaboutpizza.com and pizza.GourmetRecipe.com.
- (1888PressRelease) May 15, 2011 - Fans of pizza now have a central gathering place online that will allow them to keep up with one of the most versatile foods in the world.
Created by the Fondness Network, http://www.allaboutpizza.com will include recipes, information, and the latest news about pizza. Just as importantly, it will also feature Fondness' online community, Gourmet Heartbeat, and the network's popular blog of food experts.
The Fondness Network is an online media company that is part of Vertamin, Inc. The network's various food and drink based websites draw more than 10 million unique visitors each month.
Creating a pizza website was inevitable, said Herve Ngalani, chief operating officer at Vertamin, because pizza baked at home or served in restaurants has been among the most popular foods in America for decades.
"Pizza is constantly changing, and we know our online community wants to keep up with the latest food trends," said Ngalani. "Our new pizza site will allow them to do that. Cooks are always putting their own twist on pizza, and they can tell us about that, too."
The Fondness Network also includes other food and drink related websites, such as chocolarious.com and coffee.gourmetrecipe.com. A parent site, http://www.gourmetrecipe.com, is the network's recipe "clearinghouse." A visitor can access the parent site through other network sites.
Members can discuss anything related to pizza, or any other food or dish for that matter, at Gourmet Heartbeat. That's the place to share recipes, cooking or baking tips, or ideas on what kitchen utensils work best. That is, unless members wish to comment on the blog, where the very latest food trends - and, yes, even more recipes - are topics of online conversation.
"Our commenter are a very important part of our network," said Ngalani. "Their input keeps each site fresh and dynamic."
In addition to access to pizza recipes, http://pizza.gourmetrecipe.com includes news and information about the popular dish. That should be helpful to cooks who don't know what "Provel" is, the difference between New Haven and Detroit style pizza, or what goes into a tomato pie.
