This is a special store and Frank Caputo is a special guy.  He takes a lot of time to explain his process of making the most delicious, silky, fresh mozzarella you will ever taste as well as some lesser known favorites.  He ends up feeding my tour group and a bunch of other people in the store!  The shelves are fully stocked with the best olive oil, coffee beans, fresh and dried pasta and delicious homemade soups and much more.  Really too many things to mention, just come with me and you’ll see!

The quality of ingredients in my homemade pizza are comparable, if not better too—local, organic flour, homemade sauce with organic tomatoes from Fishkill Farms, and hand-formed mozzarella from the local Italian market, Caputo’s.
