Behind the Scenes at Batali's Pizzeria Otto

Jeremy Cesarec of the website Metromix goes from "pizza schmoe to pizza pro" after taking a pizza workshop and hanging out in the kitchens of a couple pizza chefs, including one at Mario Batali's Otto Pizzeria.

Cesarec also gets to go behind the scenes, down into the basement, to visit the curing room at Otto.
