Pizza film features Master Pizzaiolo Anthony Mangieri

  • Oct 18, 2010

Naturally Risen is a film by Michael Evans. It's a film honoring, Anthony Mangieri and his pizzeria, Una Pizza Napoletana,

When I interviewed Peter Reinhart and Chris Bianco, for Legends of Pizza, Volume 1, they both praised Anthony for his pizza making and his dedication to the art of pizza.

As Evans explains:

"Naturally Risen, is a short film documenting the rhythm of the process of noted pizzaiola Anthony Mangieri.

Anthony owned and operated Una Pizza Napoletana in the East Village of New York City from 2004 until 2009.

The film takes a decided non-verbal, intimate approach, in the tradition of a surf video – allowing Mangieri's disciplined movements to speak for themself.

Legendary skateboarder and musician Tommy Guerrero, provides the score."

You can watch Naturally Risen, here:

Una Pizza Napoletana was opened from 2004-2009.

Anthony Mangieri is simply an incredible pizzaiolo.
Michel Evans is an incredible filmaker.

Without a doubt this is the most amazing pizza film, I have ever seen.

Thank you Michael, Thank you Anthony.

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."

 Good news update.

Anthony Mangeri just opened a new pizzeria in San Francsico:

Una Pizza Napoletana
210 11th Street
San Francisco, CA

I hope some of our West Coast Pizza Fans can review it right here!
