Pizza A Casa Opens On The Lower East Side

Earlier this month, Pizza A Casa opened on the Lower East Side to much fanfare. It’s a one-stop shop for all things pizza — a pizza self sufficiency center of sorts. Pizzerias have been popping up in droves over the past few years so it was only a matter of time before a place targeted at home cookers set foot down in NYC. Not only will Pizza A Casa owner Mark Bello be offering intimate pizza making classes three times a week, but in the front of the shop all sorts of pizza equipment will be sold. That’s right — look no further for pizza stones, pizza peels, and other contraptions to suit your pizza making needs.

I took a class from Mark earlier this year when Pizza A Casa was still being run out of his Chinatown apartment [Pizza A Casa: Making Pizza At Home]. I was amazed at how well the new shop recreates the welcoming environment of his home. In fact, some of the items in the shop came directly from his place.

Below are some photos from a little pre-opening pizza tasting I attended. The pies are as delicious as those served at any pizzeria in the city — and now you can learn how to make them yourself.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
