Pizza a Casa Photo
Amateur pizzaiolo turned caterer Mark Bello new pizza classroom teaches students how to home-bake pizzas inspired by coal-oven pies like his favorite, the one at Totonno’s. So is Bello someone you want to learn from? Well, he tells us one of his students is now working at Pulino’s. In addition to a classroom, Pizza a Casa consists of a retail store in the front, where Bello is selling his products of choice, starting with bottled La Bella San Marzano tomato passata, which has the best viscosity among all the sauces he’s tried out. For mozzarella he’s loyal to Alleva Dairy of Little Italy, and he makes his dough by combining King Arthur all-purpose unbleached flour with sea salt, water, yeast, and olive oil. Also for sale: a pizza wheel that’s rarely sold in retail stores, and a pizza peel (or paddle) that’s small enough for your crappy apartment oven.
