Famed Chef Anthony Mangieri Launches Genio Della Pizza Nationwide

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 US and his restaurant, Una Pizza Napoletana, was ranked the No. 1 pizza in the world on Italy’s prestigious 50 Top Pizza’s 2022 ranking and No. 1 in the US in 2023, and he has consistently received rave reviews from top critics at The New York Times, New York Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle and more. 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.

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 now 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
