Anthony Mangieri: "This guy...makes the best pizza in the country..."

Without a doubt there are some incredible pizza makers who are totally dedicated to their craft.
One of the most dedicated is Anthony Mangieri.

Anthony Magieri is an amazing and legendary pizzaiolo. No question about that fact.

He makes pizza because he has a love of making pizza. He has passion.

He is a pizzaiolo's pizzaiolo.

Chris Bianco, one of the most celebrated pizzaiolos in the country had this to say about Anthony:

"I think Anthony does a great job...he is someone who is incredibly dedicated...I respect him immensely...he is doing something really important as far as a pizzaiolo... He really understands technique and old methods...."

Chris Bianco in an interview for Albert Grande's Legends of Pizza Series®

Here's what Jeff Ruby and Penny Pollack Authors of Everybody Loves Pizza said:

"Anthony W. Mangieri makes... pizzas:—and when the dough runs out, he’s done for the night. This guy is serious, he’s focused, and he makes the best pizza in the country."

You can visit Anthony's official web site at this link: Una Pizzeria Napoletana

A glimpse into the true of Anthony Mangieri can be seen in this video at Chow website in a video entitled: Pure Pizza Pleasure.

You need to watch the video. Simply incredible.

Una Pizza Napolentana
is an amazing pizza place. One of my dreams is to go there for pizza and to meet Anthony in person.

I just want to taste his pizza one time. Then I want to shake his hand and thank him on behalf on pizza lovers everywhere.

If you see him before I do, please tell him thanks for me.
I greatly appreciate his mission.

Thank you Anthony, thank you.
Please keep up the great work you do.
