Bavaro's Serves Up a Lesson in Pizza History

When Dan Bavaro packed up his wife and kids to move from New Jersey to Florida, he didn’t have his sights set on opening a New York-style pizzeria. Instead, Bavaro’s Pizza Napoletana and Pastaria serves up Neapolitan-style pies, bringing a taste of Italy to its four Tampa Bay locations.

What’s the difference? WUSF's food podcast, The Zest, visited Bavaro’s flagship restaurant in downtown Tampa for a lesson in pizza making.
