Mister O1 was born from the idea that an extraordinary pizza requires the utmost attention to detail and the finest ingredients, the necessary tools for an artist to produce masterpieces. Mister O1 uses only the finest and freshest ingredients and most of them are imported from Italy or locally sourced. The artisanal pizza is a delicate thin-crust style with very light dough, which is prepared and rests for a minimum of 72 hours into natural levitation before being served.

Organizer The LAB Miami

Organizer of LAB Miami October's Think Tank Thursdays

Located in the heart of the vibrant Wynwood Arts District, the LAB is Miami's original coworking community. In 2012, the founding members of the LAB teamed up with the Knight Foundation and a group of angel investors to convert a 10,000 square foot warehouse into a shared office space and event venue. Since then, a growing number of Miami's brightest and most forward-thinking entrepreneurial minds have converged here to share their ideas, learn from one another, and build amazing companies and projects.
