Making and eating Neapolitan pies at Kesté Pizza

Pizza is a family affair for Roberto Caporuscio and daughter Giorgia Caporuscio. Roberto is a pizzaiolo, Italian for master pizza maker. Giorgia is a pizzaiola, a female master pizza maker -- one of the few in the United States. Together, they run Kesté Pizza, a place where you can order a delicious pie or learn how to make one yourself. Kesté Pizza and Vino is a pizza shop and school. Roberto is the U.S. president of the Association of Neapolitan Pizza Makers, the Italian governing body that teaches Neapolitan pizza making.

The former cheese maker and farmer says his pizza making began in the city that started it all: Naples.

From Pittsburgh, Roberto became a traveling teacher.
