About Crust Kingdom And Tom Hambly

Tom Hambly is the founder and editor of Crust Kingdom – the pizza blog.

Pizza has been my favorite food since I was a kid. I’ve spent the last decade making pizzas at home and improving on my recipes all the time. When I had the idea to start a food blog, it just had to be on pizza. Since then, things have really taken off, and I now get thousands of readers a month. Check out my getting started guide.

Expertise And Experience:

I’ve learned most of my stuff from books and practicing. The first one as a teenager was Heston Blumenthal’s book “In Search Of Perfection” which had a deep dive chapter into Italian pizza secrets – before the days it was readily available online. Then years later I bought all the great pizza books – such as “The Elements Of Pizza” and “The Pizza Bible” – and really nerded out.

Besides pizza, I got into bread baking and sourdough and extended the site to have a section on that. It amazes me that my posts are helping so many people out to make better pizza and bread. It’s great reading the comments on my dough recipe from happy bakers.

I love cooking and making websites so I started a second blog on general cooking and food called Boss The Kitchen. A team of food writers post guides and recipes for all different types of cooking. In 2022 I started another blog on drinks called Totally Drinks.

I hope you enjoy the site,
