Genio Della Pizza, the frozen pizza line from famed New York chef Anthony Mangieri of the critically acclaimed Una Pizza Napoletana, is now available at retailers nationwide. 

Mangieri is a pioneer of Neapolitan style pizza in the U.S. and his restaurant, Una Pizza Napoletana, was ranked  No. 1 pizza in the world on Italy’s prestigious 50 Top Pizza’s 2022 ranking and No. 1 in the U.S. in 2023. Three years ago, he sought out to bring high quality pizza that is handmade in Italy, wood fire baked, and made with natural Italian ingredients such as Italian plum tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and Italian oregano, to consumers nationwide. 

After working tirelessly to create the perfect frozen pizza, Genio Della Pizza launched earlier this year in the New York City area with four pizzas, Margherita, The Bianca, Broccoli Rabe and Marinara, and is now available across the nation for the first time

Genio Della Pizza is redefining frozen pizza in that it is made in Italy and is all natural, hand-stretched, 24-hour-risen, and wood-fire-baked. The products are made in Italy with Italian ingredients such as basil from Liguria, Sicilian sea salt and flour milled in Italy. The dough is hand stretched by a team of artisans in Italy, specially trained to work with the unique nature of Anthony’s dough - it pushes the hydration level, giving the pizza a lighter and more interesting dough structure. Lastly, the pizzas are cooked in wood-fired ovens with a blend of oak and beech wood from local Italian farms.

For the first time since launching a few months ago, Genio Della Pizza is increasing its distribution to become available to consumers across the country.  The pizzas are found in the frozen food sections of major national retailers including Whole Foods Market, Bristol Farms, Fresh Direct, Go Puff, Goldbelly, Nugget, Lassens, Feed, DeCicco & Sons, and more. The line-up of pizzas includes:

  • Margherita - Italian Tomatoes, Buffalo Mozzarella, Fresh Basil.
  • The Bianca - Ricotta Cheese, Buffalo Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, Garlic.
  • Broccoli Rabe - Italian Tomatoes, Buffalo Mozzarella, Broccoli Rabe, Olives.
  • Marinara - Italian Tomatoes, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Oregano, Garlic. 

About Anthony Mangieri
A pizza pioneer recognized globally for his craft, Anthony originally grew up in a close-knit Italian family in New Jersey. He developed a pizza obsession at a young age, and persuaded his mother to drive him to every well-known pizzeria in the tri-state area. This early fixation developed into a lifelong dedication to creating the perfect pizza—something that he remains steadfastly dedicated to every day. At Una Pizza Napoletana, Anthony focuses on naturally leavened, wood fired pizzas with ingredients like the best San Marzano tomatoes, Amalfi wild oregano, buffalo mozzarella DOP, and Sicilian sea salt (and only three pies are carefully placed to baked in the wood fired oven at one time). He chose to have only one location to allow for an obsessive focus on every detail. Since opening, Anthony has made each and every pizza dough himself, and the restaurant does not open for service unless he is able to be there. Anthony spent years garnering rave reviews from top critics at The New York Times, New York Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The New Yorker, and has been prominently featured everywhere from Esquire to Bon Appetit.  Additionally in 2022, he claimed the No. 1 spot on the prestigious Italian 50 Top Pizza's global ranking (beating out top spots in Naples, Rome, and the rest of Italy).  Additionally, he just launched Genio Della Pizza - three years of work to create the perfect high quality frozen pizza for other obsessive pizza lovers across the U.S.
