The founders of backyard brick ovens have brought the Forno Bello series backyard pizza oven to the home... and they are sharing with you the "know how" on how to make authentic wood fired pizza from scratch. Scot Cosentino and Andrew Scudera have been in the pizza business for over 25 years, opperating out of the famous Staten Island "Original Goodfella's" located on Hylan Blvd. They wanted to share the experience of authentic pizza, dessert's, and family favorite dishes with food enthusiasts, families, and home chefs everywhere. The Forno Bello series was created to serve that purpose, to give everyone a opportunity to make great dishes from the comfort of their own backyard! The oven was created to be affordable, easy to opporate, and strong to withstand the elements to give you years and years of cooking joy!
You do not need to be a pro to learn how to cook in the Forno Bello pizza oven. The creators have compiled a series of videos that will teach you how to make dough, pizza sauce, what cheeses to use, as well as 20 gourmet recipes ranging from pizzas, to fish, to steak, and desserts too! Below is a list of the videos in the series. You can register below to get a few free course videos.

What a huge week - the Goodfella's Pizza School of NY and NY Brick Oven Company at the 2016 International Pizza Expo!
The Pizza School of NY family was in full force this year at the expo competing in Traditional and Non Traditional categories and placing 1st and 3rd in their regions. The International Pizza Expo is the largest trade show for the pizza industry loaded with hundreds of vendors selling everything pizza and thousands of attendees from all across the planet. Leo DiCesaris from Cerrone's Brick Oven Pizza placed 3rd in his region, has only been in business for a few months and competed in the expo for the 1st time. Joey Nidel from Tuscono's also competed for the 1st time and placed 1st in his region for the Non Traditional category. Andrew Scudera from Goodfella's Brick Oven Pizza and the Pizza School of NY placed 1st in the East Coast Region and moved on to the 2nd round to compete for best pizza in the world. Scudera finished 3rd overall in the competition this year. Scudera is no stranger to the Pizza Expo, winning first place for Best Pizza in the World in the Non Traditional category with the Tequila Pie. Goodfella's is no stranger to competition, winning 3 National Titles, 4 International Titles and 9 Regional Titles in the East Coast in past years. Click HERE to see some past press and photos from their many years of competing! Also competing the the non traditional and traditional categories were the all female crew from Strongs Brick Oven Pizza in Northern Kentucky. I would like to congratulate all my Pizza School of NY alumni on a job well done. We are looking forward to seeing you next year in 2017 for another very successful expo! Below is some highlights from the competition and about the Pizza School.
a "Giving Tree" and had a holiday tree donated by a gener-ous customer. She then began to orga-nize all the information from the families in need, collecting name, phone number, address, the ages of children, and what they wanted for Christmas. Nicole's idea was to make snowmen orna-ments out of oak tag and list each child's name, age, and gift wishes. The snowmen were hung on the tree for cus-
tomers to take and pur-chase the gifts. Each child listed four to five things they wanted, and some of them asked not for toys but much-needed cloth-ing. We hung up the first is snowmen on a Monday morning. By closing time, all of them were taken. As the emails and calls came in for children in need, more snowmen were created and hung on the tree. And, by the end of each night, the snowmen were gone. After a few days, peo-ple were returning to the restaurant with the snow-man they had taken and bags full of their gifts. Our good friend Sean Conaghan from ValPack donated a flyer and sent it out Islandwide to help get the word out. People have been dropping off gifts all week, some promising toys by the truckload they had collected for their own toy drives but did not know how to dis-tribute. Others have been call-ing to help wrap gifts be-cause they had been af-fected by the storm, could not help out by purchasing gifts, so they wanted to donate their time. Within the next few days we will go from col-lection and wrapping to distributing. We have staff members as well as volunteers who will be delivering these holiday presents door-to-door. Over so specific families will have their individual wishes fulfilled.
FULFILLMENT I cannot begin to ex-plain the feeling of pride, happiness, and gratitude I have for this community and for my staff. To see a group of young adults take charge and make a change in so many lives this holiday season is something very special. To see our customers jump in and adopt a child s holiday wish is in-credible. And to see people who were affected by Sandy come to Goodfella's, sit at a table, and wrap presents for hours is something that I will never forget.
