MEET A SCIENTOLOGIST airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.

Scot Cosentino went from a struggling student who overcame learning barriers to the founder of the famed Goodfella’s Brick Oven Pizza in New York City. Now he is an award-winning restaurateur, known for creating some of the most popular pies in the pizza capital of the world.


Scot Cosentino is a third-generation Italian American, born in North Carolina and raised from the age of two in Brooklyn, New York. Scot’s love of pizza began as a child growing up in a neighborhood filled with legendary Italian restaurants. As an adult, he sought to learn the pizza business, but a lifelong struggle with learning prevented him from achieving his goal.

Scot credits L. Ron Hubbard’s Study Technology as the turning point in his life and career. After overcoming his barriers to learning, he gained the confidence to pursue his lifelong passion — making pizza. Scot established Goodfella’s Brick Oven Pizza, the first-ever wood-fired brick oven pizzeria on Staten Island. His innovative and delicious pies have attracted a devoted following of city luminaries, mayors and celebrities. Among Scot’s countless awards are his multiple World’s Best Pizza trophies from the International Pizza Expo. Fulfilling his mission to help others who share his passion for pizza, Scot established the Pizza School of New York, an exclusive one-on-one training academy that instructs pizza makers from across the globe.
