About: Anthony Mangieri is a pioneer of Neapolitan-style pizza in the United States.
A native of New Jersey, Anthony grew up in a close-knit Italian-American family and developed a pizza obsession from a young age, persuading his mother to drive him to every well-known pizzeria in the tri-state area. This early fixation developed into a lifelong dedication to creating the perfect pizza—something that he remains steadfastly dedicated to every day.
Anthony established Una Pizza Napoletana in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ in 1996, then relocated to Manhattan’s East Village in 2004, where his pizzas drew lines of customers and rave reviews. Looking for better weather and closer proximity to the great outdoors, he relocated the pizzeria to San Francisco in 2010, where the third iteration of Una Pizza Napoletana continued to enthrall critics and pizza lovers alike.
Anthony returned to New York’s Lower East Side in 2018 and opened a second location in New Jersey’s Atlantic Highlands in 2020.
Having single-handedly made more than 700,000 pizzas (and counting), Anthony crafts uncomplicated pizzas with complex flavors — a result of the naturally leavened dough and the hand-selected ingredients. Known for his monk-like dedication to pizza perfection, customers travel from all over the world to eat his pizza.
Anthony has been featured across print, online and broadcast media including Tv spots on Good Morning America and Food Network Top 5 as well as a recurring role on the SHOwtime series “Billions”. His obsession with pizza making is only rivaled by his deep dedication to mountain biking, skateboarding and punk rock.
