Una Pizza Napoletana San Francisco – Best Neapolitan Pizza

In 2009, Anthony Mangieri, the great pizzaiolo and owner of Una Pizza Napoletana moved his own cheese to the city by the bay, San Francisco.

Once nestled in lower Manhattan at 349 East 12th Street, just down the block from Luzzo’s La Pizza Napoletana and surrounded by other odd eateries like Momofuku and Fuku (not pronounced F*ck-You, but Foo-Koo), Una Pizza Napoletana now serves the faithful upscale guttersnipe of San Francisco.

For many years I had hoped for the opportunity to eat a few pies at the NYC location and for some odd reason or another I would have, but for the so-called “Pizza Expert’s” desire to take me and Sam-I-Am (our other esteemed pizza colleague), to repetitive and nonsensical revisits to L&B Spumoni Gardens and other been-there, done-that tomfoolery. Nevertheless, I didn’t. Even an impromptu trip to San Francisco several years ago, caused the Mad Greek to come up with burnt crumbs as this fine eatery is closed Monday and Tuesday. So when yours truly had the chance this past week to finally take in the long awaited pleasure of Mangieri’s genius, I did so, twice on November 30th and December 1st.

Many may complain that Una Pizza Napoletana’s prices are steep, and to some who like to sit home and watch porn and use their web coupons to save $2 on a Domino’s pizza, yeah, at $25 a pie, its expensive. But where else are you going to find a traditional Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN) that doesn’t need to belong to some hokey cock and bull organization like so many others put on their window.

I’ll get right to the point… Anthony Mangieri makes the best f*cking VPN style pizza in America and quite possibly, the world. You don’t believe me? No problem, your loss. I’ve been reviewing and home cooking pizza for a long time. There is no doubt in my mind that Una Pizza Napoletana is the best VPN pizza. Just like there is no doubt in my mind that Johnny’s Pizza in Mt. Vernon, NY is the best deck style – Baker’s oven pizza in the country.

I’ll save you all the “he gets the best ingredients” and “he makes his own dough” and the platitudes of “the San Marzano tomatoes this” and “the Caputo flour that”, and so on and so on and so on. The bottom line here is this… if you never get the opportunity to go to Una Pizza Napoletana, it's a real shame and I wouldn’t fault you if you’ve never been to San Francisco, or don’t have it in your travel plans for the foreseeable future. But if you live in the State of California, a place well known to have some of the absolute WORST PIZZA in all of creation, then you don’t have any excuse not to go to Una Pizza Napoletana. If you don’t, then you’re just a loser like the rest of the pathetic folks that like to live their lives complaining about everything and not experiencing the best of things instead.
