Manhattan restaurateur Donatella Arpaia opened her Neapolitan pizzeria, Donatella's on Friday in Chelsea in NYC. To learn the craft, Ms. Arpaia trained for three months with Enzo Coccia, a noted third-generation pizzaiolo from Naples, Italy, where he owns Pizzeria La Notizia. Prior to opening, Ms. Arpaia hosted a preview at which Mr. Coccia made pizza for guests. Here, he builds a couple white (sauceless) pies.

True pizza nerds should go back and watch Mathieu Palombino stretch dough in this video. You'll see how similar the men's methods are.
