Gustiamo was given the highest honor, last night, when we went to meet Enzo Coccia, the famous pizzaiolo from Naples who flew to NY to help Donatella Arpaia open her Donatella Pizzeria. The highest honor was that Enzo literally opened the Pizzeria for us, turned on the oven, prepared the most spectacular pizza. ONLY for us! Why all this attention? Because Gustiamo is the importer of Piennolo Vine Tomatoes from Casa Barone in America and Enzo wants to make sure we will continue to provide these gems to the pizzeria forever. In fact, on the menu, the signature dish, Pizza Donatella, is made with Piennolo Tomatoes. Enzo is a celebrity in Naples, he makes one of the best pizza in Italy and ONLY uses Piennolo Tomatoes by Casa Barone. And you? What do you use on your pizza?
Click on the video above, and you’ll see Enzo Coccia in action. In Italian. Boldly proud, as his pizza is delicious. In the video, you’ll see Jarrett, the executive chef and Salvio, Enzo’s neapolitan assistant who will remain in NYC for 2 more months, to make really really sure the pizza is perfect. Grazie a tutti!
