The reason you’ll be seeing a lot more of this Dayton food truck

Bella Sorella adds 2nd unit, celebrates 5 years

The sisters who founded of one of Dayton’s most traveled food trucks are celebrating their fifth year in business this year — and they’ve added a second unit to accommodate demand. 

Bella Sorella Pizza Co. is the brainchild of two sisters: Elizabeth Corrado Weizman, who started using her first brick oven more than a decade ago in her backyard; and Gail Corrado Okafor, who spent 12 years in the Bay Area in California, where she trained to become a professional chef, before returning to the Dayton area.

“We’re from Dayton and proud to be running a business in our hometown,” Weizman said.

The sisters began in 2013 serving local brewpubs and catering small parties. Bella Sorella, translated in Italian as “beautiful sister,” has now added a second mobile unit and has tripled its events.

The bulk of Bella Sorella’s business now is catering of private events such as graduation parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, and business lunches — although it will be serving to the public from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tonight, May 19 at Eudora Brewing Company in Kettering.

“We just kept getting so many requests and had to turn them down because we couldn’t be in two places at once,” Weizman said. “Now we can.”

The co-founder said she and her sister and their families “take the most pride in our food and the local connection, and service.

“We grow a good part of the pizza ingredients on our own family farm, and our own dough recipe is now being made weekly by Bakehouse Bread in Troy to help us keep up with demand,” Weizman said.

“Almost everyone who works for us is a family member or long-time friend. One of our favorite times is when our parents come to visit on site and our dad just walks right in the middle of the whole operation, grabs a pizza, and says, ‘Looks good, girls!’”

Bella Sorella’s founders specialize in Neopolitan-style pizzas, thin-crust pizzas that cook in as little as two minutes in the wood-burning brick oven that reaches 800 degrees. In that respect, the sisters were ahead of their time, at least locally: Fast-casual pizza chains such as Rapid Fired Pizza, MOD Pizza and PizzaFire employ a similar fast-cook, customizable pie in their restaurants, which have all opened in the last two years, many of them in recent months.

A California couple was arrested Sunday after 13 siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29, were allegedly held captive in a home, with several children “shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings,” the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said Monday.

In a news release, the Sheriff’s Department said David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested and charged with torture and child endangerment. Bail was set at $9 million apiece, according to the news release.

Early Sunday, a 17-year-old called 911 and said she had escaped from her residence in Perris, according to the Sheriff’s Department. The teenager claimed that her 12 brothers and sisters were “being held captive” in the residence by her parents. 

When deputies met with the teen, she “appeared to be only 10 years old and slightly emaciated.” Deputies went to the residence and said they were “shocked” to find the teen’s 12 siblings, seven of whom were adults ranging in age from 18 to 29. All of them appeared to be “malnourished and very dirty,” according to the release.

The parents were subsequently arrested, deputies said.

The six children, including the teen who escaped, were taken to a hospital in Moreno Valley for treatment, deputies said. The adults were being treated at a hospital in Corona.

David Turpin’s parents, James and Betty Turpin of West Virginia, told ABC News they were surprised and shocked at the allegations, KABC reported.

According to the California Department of Education website, David Turpin is listed as principal of the Sandcastle Day School, which was operated out of his home. The address listed for the school is the same residence where the 13 victims were discovered, CNN reported.

The school opened March 21, 2011, according to the website, and was categorized as a private school for students in grades one through 12.

Flight 133 was carrying 166 passengers and crew as it prepared for takeoff to Portland, Oregon, officials said.

Passengers said they felt the plane hit something just before taking off.

“As we are taxiing out to the runway we felt a jostle and we all kind of knew that it wasn't normal,” said Samuel Zavaletta, a passenger.

“(It was) kind of like a shudder, the plane shuddered a little bit, really didn't slow down much, just felt like we hit a pothole,” said another passenger, Rick Aiken.

According to the airline, the left wing of the plane hit a parked de-icing truck on the runway, so the plane turned back to the gate and the flight was canceled.

"You could see the bottom part of the plane wing had actually come off, totally disconnected from it," said passenger John Simers.

The airline released a statement and noted that the passengers were “being re-accommodated on other flights to the West Coast.”
