Wood Fired passion

How the fire started

For 28 years Simone and I have had a shared passion for food. Our pizza journey is a huge part of that passion. It began with friends and family gathered around good food, long before opening and operating a restaurant. In December of 2011 Humdinger’s Gourmet Pizza Co. was born and we opened our restaurant in Palmer, Alaska. In January of 2021 we closed shop in Alaska after moving to Ohio to care for family. It was a wonderful run.

As former youth ministers, we’ve dished up pizzas from Alaska to Georgia and now Ohio. Our journey has taken us through 10 years of ministry, six years as a Correctional Officer for the State of Alaska, Simone’s graduation from nursing school and my Associates in culinary arts. After ten years owning and operating a wood fired pizza restaurant and catering company we have now embarked on a new journey entertaining, teaching and serving great food in rural Ohio.
