A pizza is much more than just its ingredients. A great pizza blends historical traditions with scientific subtleties. That's what Chef Michael Ayoub brought to Brooklyn when Fornino opened its doors in 2004. Dubbed the "First Chef of Brooklyn" by the New York Times, Ayoub draws from the Neapolitan style of pizza making while appreciating the formulaic approach to crafting pizza. The science behind Fornino's dough allows for each of our pizzas to come out perfectly every single time, no matter the day, weather, or topping. The Fornino namesake was borrowed from Ayoub's mother's maiden name, a nod to his family's history of baking through the generations.
