Vincent sits down with Sicilian pizzaiolo Pino, who prepares his pizza from scratch and uses his homemade stone oven to cook. Local ingredients like eggplant, salami, and olives make these pizzas light and fresh, and the stone oven leaves the crust thick, light, and crispy.


One interesting thing to note about the Sicilian style of pizza, called "sfincione," is that it is the inspiration for what many Americans call Chicago style deep dish pizza.
