MADISON, AL (WAFF) - He's been on Food Network, has set a Guinness world record, traveled the world, and is now making pizza for people here in the Valley.
Joe Carlucci, owner of Famous Joe's in Madison, got his start early.
"In my brother in law's restaurant I started out as a dishwasher/busboy," he said.
Carlucci was recently crowned the fastest pizza maker in the world, awarded in Naples, the birthplace of pizza.
"Hard work. But I think a lot of the passion stems from having a last name Carlucci--the Italian, you know."
He says it's also a matter of knowing the dough.
Either way, when you visit Famous Joe's Pizza on County Line Road in Madison, you can expect to get good pizza and a good show.
