Pizza Masters is a culinary travel show that premiered in 2014 on the Cooking Channel starring two best friends and business partners, Sal Basille and Francis Garcia. The show follows them as they travel across the US in their customized pizza oven truck in search of the perfect slice of pizza.

The show is set against a lighthearted and comedic backdrop with the duo's entertaining and playful banter. The premise of the show is simple: Sal and Francis visit different cities, talk to locals, and sample some of the best pizza that each city has to offer. They also create their unique pizza creations influenced by the cities they visit.

The show has garnered a significant following, thanks in large part to the personalities of Sal and Francis. They are always full of energy and enthusiasm, which is infectious and makes for entertaining viewing. They also have a great connection on screen, which is evident in their on-screen chemistry.

Throughout the series, viewers get to experience the diverse regional pizza styles in the United States. While New York-style pizza is their go-to, they explore different regions' unique pizza styles, such as Detroit-style, Chicago-style, and even pizza-inspired dishes like pizza cones, pizza muffins, and pizza bombs.

The humor and energy that the duo brings to the show makes it feel like an adventure with two old friends rather than a staged travel show. The series is peppered with funny and interesting anecdotes about the duo's pizza-making experiences, and their interactions with the locals.

In one episode, Sal and Francis visit Chicago, where they sample deep-dish pizza and meet with a chef who has been making pizzas for over fifty years. They also create their deep-dish pizza iteration, which they serve to the locals, who aren't shy about giving their honest opinions.

In another episode, they visit Austin, where they sample meat-inspired pizzas and create their take on the BBQ brisket pizza. They even visit a local music venue, where they play in a band while serving up their unique pizza creations to the crowd.

Pizza Masters is not just a show for pizza lovers; it's for anyone who enjoys a good time, great humor, and an adventure. The show's focus on local cuisine and the duo's willingness to try different foods and experiment with diverse pizza styles can inspire viewers to try something new and different.

Overall, Pizza Masters is an entertaining and enjoyable travel show that showcases pizza as a unifying force that brings people together in the United States. It's a fun and entertaining watch that will leave viewers craving a slice of pizza and planning their next adventure.
