Stefano Callegari didn't have your average path to becoming one of Rome's most well-known pizza chefs: He spent 10 years as a flight attendant. Blame it on the airplane food or blame it on nearly 100 trips to Naples, but he found himself inescapably drawn to the art of pizza-making, and the world is better off for it. Eight Italian locations of La Rossa later, Callegari has opened up shop in New York City, a pizza oasis in the heart of bustling Soho. If the scent of fried rice balls and toasting dough doesn't immediately draw you in, the sight of a pepper mill-garnished cacio e pepe pizza on a nearby table should do the trick.
