Legendary New York Pizza Chef, Andrew Bellucci dies.

"He opened Bellucci Pizza in February 2021, a slice shop in Astoria that sold a version of the coal-oven clam pie he had on the menu at Lombardi’s. The restaurant was well-received, but Bellucci walked away less than a year later, writing in a social media post at the time that he and his former partner Leo Dakmak had “different visions for the future.”

Andrew and I didn't always see eye to eye, but, unlike many in the pizza community, he was never openly hostile towards me, which says quite a bit.  I know folks justifiably loved the pizzas he sold, but, for an oven geek like myself, I found the coal oven he built fascinating and have watched these videos countless times.







I'm definitely going to miss him.
