Domenico Tolomeo

Domenico “Mimmo” Tolomeo is a first-generation Italian American who comes from a long line of master bread makers from Italy’s southern region.

At 32, he decided to make a career change and began studying the art of pizza making. He trained under Award Winning Master Pizzaiolo Roberto Caporuscio. Under Roberto’s guidance, Mimmo received his certification from the Associazione Pizzaiouli Napoletani, the governing body of pizza makers in Italy. Over the course of his first year Mimmo was the recipient of the 2019 Caputo Rising Star Pizzaiolo at the infamous Caputo Cup. He was the Capo Pizzaiolo at the World Renowned Keste Pizza e Vino and is now the co-owner of Taglio Pizza in Long Island, NY.
