Pizza Talk: Nino Coniglio — Brooklyn is in the House! Part 1
Nino Coniglio and his Brooklyn Pizza Crew have taken the pizza world by storm, whether through their videos, competitions, and, of course, the amazing pizzas that have helped put Williamsburg Pizza on the culinary destination map. Talking with Nino is like stepping into a Martin Scorcese film — the man has, shall we say, lived a full, large life. But, this former wild child of the pizza world has been tamed and channeled by his “better half,” fiance’ Shealyn Brand, who appears in this two part series with Nino from their garden in Bushwick. We talk all about their partnership, about Bushwick, Williamsburg, and, of course, Nino’s redemptive journey through pizza. If you’ve never heard of Nino, prepare to meet one of today’s living legends right here on Pizza Talk.
