Famed pizza champion and chef Vincenzo Capuano traveled in from Naples to serve up brick oven pies along with his energetic crew that couldn’t help but to sing and shout along in the process.
“We’ve been waiting for this one all year!” he exclaimed while serving out a special bacon and egg breakfast pie made on a special dough.
Another notables slice came from Harry’s Pizza in Miami where braised short rib found its way onto a pie topped with delicious honey glaze.
While there were plenty of other options to pull from that weekend, two Bronx pizzerias especially shined.
Puglsey Pizza in Fordham served up a slice familiar to many of its Bronx customers by the hands of Salvatore Natale along with his iconic gong that he invited the masses to hit for good luck in a vibrant way of projecting one’s dreams out into the world.
