New Jersey native Anthony Mangieri paved the way for authentic wood-fired Napoletana pizza in the U.S. more than 20 years ago, and became famous for his no-compromises style in New York City’s East Village before moving Una Pizza Napoletana to San Francisco five years ago.
In this video from Baby Blue Film, Mangieri and Soulcraft’s Sean Walling share common experiences and talk about getting on bikes as kids:Tweet Print
Avid cyclist and popular San Francisco-based Neapolitan pizza maker Anthony Mangieri doesn’t do anything less than full on, and this video sheds light on what drives the New Jersey native to bake (and ride) with authenticity.
His direct demeanor intimidates some, but his chosen craft elevates the sceptic after their first bite. And, his riding skills on singletrack and tarmac are nearly as legendary as his pizza making (I know because I’ve been following his wheel for three years). He also supports several Bay Area frame builders with events and his wallet, ordering custom bikes from Brent Steelman, Soulcraft, Steve Potts and Rock Lobster.
