Here is some priceless video of Frank Pepe making pizza at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana, Wooster Street in New Haven, Connecticut. You can view step by simple step how he casually puts together a pizza. Simple, easy with the love of making an incredible pizza.

What I find most fascinating is the how casual he is while putting together his pizza.

The simplicity of the ingredients. The master is able to shape the pizza gently and deliberately.
There is no hesitation in his pizza making…

I do not know the origin of this video. It was posted on YouTube and I am just sharing it. Frank Pepe passed away in 1969 so this video was shot some time in the 50’s or -60’s.

Just as a contrast, I present some video of pizza maing at Pepe’s. This is a video I created myself.

Here are some the pizzas that come out of the Pepe’s oven.

    Great shots, Albert! Judging by the quality of the film in that first clip and the apparent age of Frank Pepe in the footage, I'd say sometime in the 1940's. Also, the "k" key on your keyboard seems to be malfunctioning. Your LinkedIn post says "Frank Pepe maling pizza" and above you refer to pizza maing. Just sayin', my friend.
