Teacher: Tony scalioti

Tony approached the world of pizza at a very young age, in faraway Calabria, particularly in Cariati, his hometown. It all started with a pizza with friends, from which he discovered this innate passion for the world of pizza, of which he knew nothing. So he began, for fun and curiosity, to give a hand to a family friend, owner of a renowned local pizzeria.
His role was to take care of the afternoon preparations and to season the pizzas, but that was not what fascinated him. What had pushed him into that pizzeria was his curiosity and desire to work the dough and handle the shovels, to understand the various processes and tricks of cooking the disc of dough. For this reason he moved, against the will of his parents who believed he was still too young, to work in a pizzeria 30km from home. At that time he did not have a driving license, so his father had to drive him and pick him up every day after a long day of work. Nevertheless, thanks to his great passion for pizza, he continued on his way and began to handle dough and shovels, baking his first pizzas. That was the true beginning of the path that has led him to where he is today.
His work has led him to travel extensively, moving both in Italy and abroad.
According to Tony, it’s important for young people to study, improve and always put heart and passion into their work in order to be successful.
