Few chefs have the following that Anthony Mangieri has amassed over the last 15 years with Una Pizza Napoletana. He’s a self-taught pizzaiolo from the Jersey Shore and the unofficial front man for the Naples-style pizza movement. New York City’s quintessential food, pizza, is being redefined by a new breed of pizza maker that believes there is only one true pizza — the kind that Naples, Italy, is famous for, Pizza Napoletana. When he moved his restaurant to Manhattan back in 2004, he declared his pizza better than any in New York, but also Naples as well.

In 2009, at the height of his success and popularity, he decided to move his operation to San Francisco to start a family and improve his life. He again grew a fervent following of devoted customers due to his commitment to the craft, using naturally leavened dough, imported ingredients, impeccable toppings and a wood-fired oven. But the San Francisco lifestyle started to take its toll and Anthony and his wife began talking about moving back to NYC to be closer to family. However, this time without the trash talking and bravado.

Now, after three openings in different locations, Una Pizza Napoletana 4.0 is returning to the Big Apple on the Lower East Side. However, this time around he’s added partners Fabian von Hauske Valtierra and Jeremiah Stone, the chef-owners of trendy NYC restaurants Wildair and Contra, who are largely responsible for the addition of small plates and desserts to the menu. Version 4.0, which opened three months ago, now offers a variety of gourmet appetizers and desserts, which is a huge departure from his previous limited menu. Together, the new owners have created a restaurant experience exceptional enough that they can charge $25 for a 12-inch pizza — and it still seems like a bargain to their loyal followers.

Make plans now to attend our special session featuring Anthony Mangieri and Peter Reinhart, instructor at Johnson & Wales University, founder of the Pizza Quest video and blog site, American baker, educator and author. On opening day, Wednesday, October 3 at 5 p.m., Peter will sit down with Anthony for a candid conversation about the pizza industry and his place in it as an established and influential artisan. This is a must-attend event that you won’t want to miss.

It’s all about pizza and pasta, and it’s all for YOU!
