New Podcast: Cane Rosso Boss Jay Jerrier

And let's not forget Zoli's and Thunderbird Pies.
By |

First thing: Jay is hosting a special D Magazine subscriber-only pizza night on February 27 in conjunction with our February pizza issue. Folks will get to eat pies from all three of his pizza joints: Cane Rosso, Zoli’s, and Thunderbird Pies (site of said pizza night). Tickets are $30, which includes adult beverages. I’m told a handful are still available. If you’re a subscriber and you missed the email invite, send a note pronto to Natalie. If you’re not a subscriber, get that situation straightened out.

Now then. Zac and I popped over to the Deep Ellum Cane Rosso to record this episode of EarBurner. Use your favorite podcatcher, or listen with the player below. Our discussion included, but was not limited to, the following: Jay’s insane number of dogs, Jay’s wife’s potty mouth, the difference between a homophone and a homonym, pepperoni’s inauthenticity, Frank Campagna’s murals in the restaurant, how Jay quit his day job to create a pizza empire that now employs 520 people, and puntata. Turns out, I knew more about puntata than Jay did.

Since I clowned on Jay a bit with the photo of him at the top of this post (from his senior year in high school), here’s him with his entire lovely family, including the four-legged members:
