Pinello opened Best Pizza in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in 2010. Not long after, his shop was of national prominence thanks to his wood-burning-oven-baked slices inspired by Pinello’s Sicilian heritage and understanding of New York pizza tradition.

Pinello’s keynote address will kickstart Pizza & Pasta Northeast at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, October 3.

Falco, the former “pizza czar” at Roberta’s in Brooklyn and now a world-traveling “International Pizza Consultant,” says he first learned pizza making from his Sicilian grandmother. He has consulted with pizzerias in Sao Paulo, Bogota, Panama, Toronto, London, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Charleston, Iowa and Madrid.

Falco’s day two keynote address is set for 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 4.
