**In celebration of Women’s History Month, I’ll be posting about women in the pizza community every few days this month. The pizza biz is pretty male-dominated, so let’s take this opportunity to throw the spotlight onto some of the women who are doing amazing work in the pizza world.
Barbara isn’t in the pizza industry, but I want to give her a shoutout anyway since I posted about pizza box art this morning. Barbara and I met when I lived in Hoboken around 2007. She was a volunteer at the Hoboken Historical Museum and I lived right across the street. Barbara and I became friends and she always supported my crazy pizza obsession, particularly my pizza box collection. Barbara goes on incredible trips every few months to places like Morocco, Lichtenstein, Cuba, and at least a dozen others I’m just not thinking of this moment. Without fail, she brings back boxes from every trip. The entire group she travels with gets into it as well and they all scout for pizzerias so Barbara can get a box. It’s truly incredible. For this reason, Barbara is a true hero of the pizza community.
