His mission was as easy as pie - LA Times
Brad Otton's two-year Mormon mission not only broadened his horizons, it also honed his culinary tastes.

And the pizza...

...So, a decade later, Otton started up the Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana in Henderson, Nev., with a second restaurant recently opened in Salt Lake...
