Anthony MangieriChef/Partner Una Pizza Napoletana
Growing up in New Jersey, Anthony Mangieri was consumed by his Italian heritage and Neapolitan pizza-making from a young age. In 1996, he opened the original Una Pizza Napoletana in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, where he was one of the first to sling Neapolitan-style pies stateside. The concept moved to the East Village in 2004 and San Francisco in 2010 before returning to New York City’s Lower East Side this spring, in partnership with Contra/Wildair duo Jeremiah Stone and Fabián von Hauske Valtierra.
Each night, Una Pizza Napoletana serves the same handmade,12-inch rounds made from naturally leavened dough and baked in a wood-fired brick oven that Mangieri has been crafting since he was 15 years old. Over the years, Mangieri has been recognized in number of notable publications including The New York Times, New York Magazine, The New Yorker and The San Francisco Chronicle. An avid mountain biker, Mangieri lives in Murray Hill with his wife, Ilaria, and daughter, Apollonia.
