Donatella Arpaia’s people send this photo of the D with the newly installed oven at her forthcoming pizzeria, Donatella. Her chef, Jarett Appell, has been firing it up while she’s been training in Naples with the oven’s builder, Enzo Coccia. The pizzeria is a month away from opening, but boy are they pushing it hard.
