Talk: Pizza School

For five years, Mark Bello taught at various venues around New York City, including the Astor Center, Whole Foods, and Murray's Cheese. Urged forward by increasing demand for pizza education and pizza gear recommendations, Mark opened the Pizza a Casa Pizza School and retail shop in April 2010. His pizzas have been praised in publications including Time Out New York, Food & Wine, Tasting Table, The Village Voice, Epicurious.com, Entrepreneur and were a sold-out hit at his demonstration and tasting at the James Beard House. Mark's pizza expertise has also been featured on Martha Stewart's "Morning Living" radio and Travel Channel's "Food Wars: NYC Pizza."
