Just down the street from me, resides a massive pizza oven, from Naples, Italy. The master of such a device is Anthony Mangieri, proprietor of Una Pizza Napoletana. A heavily tattoed, pizza-making, punk rocker type, Mangieri is also known to ride a great stable of bicycles. Writer Gary Boulanger (you may have read his work in Bicycling and other places) has a great piece on Mangieri called “Peace-seeking Punk Rock Pizzaolo”. In another weekend, on Sunday, August 12, if you’re in the Bay Area, you can partake in his craft, as well as the craft of many a local framebuilder, and the musical stylings of original Bones Brigade member and SF resident, Tommy Guerrero at the A Ruota Libera 2.
