Everybody loves pizza. But Milwaukee has never seen the likes of what will be coming out of the kitchen at Flourchild, the newest endeavor from the folks at Merriment Social and Third Coast Provisions.

On this week’s podcast, Chef Andrew Miller shares the details on his passion-fueled journey to create the original recipe for the pizza at Flourchild. From the painstaking details of their slow-fermented crust made with freshly milled flour to the inspiration behind the restaurant’s focus on flavorful vegetable-forward toppings, Miller paints a delicious, insightful picture of what’s to come at the city’s newest pizza spot.

During the Food Porn Minute, we also tackle one of the most erotic poems about pizza we've ever happened upon. Did we perform it as well as this guy? You decide.
