Andrew Scudera, mad pizza scientist of Goodfella’s Brick Oven Pizza in Staten Island, works out the recipe for almost a month. “I came up with idea to use tequila, but it was collaboration,” says Scudera. “Everyone here at the restaurant dived in and gave their input, helping to perfect the recipe by the time we brought it to the show.”
