Domenico DeMarco of Di Fara, Making Pizza in Brooklyn For 45 Years

Margaret Emily MacKenzie created a great mini documentary about Domenico DeMarco of Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn, who has been making pizza over 45 years.

Hailed as the “godfather of Brooklyn pizza,” for forty five years Domenico DeMarco, Italian émigré and father of seven, has been slinging pizzas in his legendary corner shop, Di Fara. Employing five of his children, Dom works tirelessly from morning until night hand crafting each and every pizza himself while his kids take orders and manage the mob of devoted pizza aficionados. The Best This I Ever Done is a portrait of DeMarco and his beloved pizzeria, an exploration of his rise to fame and an ode to pizzaioli who take their time to ‘make it right.’
