Does Jamie Oliver Have A Secret Pizza Partner in Phoenix?

Is a certain Naked Chef pairing up with a well-known Valley pizza master?

I've been hearing a fair amount of buzz lately (BUZZ! BUZZ! BUZZ!), that Jamie Oliver, the English chef who recently attempted to improve the eating habits of kids in the Los Angeles Public School system, is opening a new restaurant this November in England with a certain James Beard Award winning pizza legend in the Valley -- and that the two already have a second location at the ready.

Attempts at contacting this private pizza man for comment have been fruitless. Is the rumor true? Maybe. Maybe not. But whichever one it is, it sure smells juicy.
