Although he was born and raised in Fremont, he actually started his career at his brother’s place in Castro Valley, CA, Pyzano’s Pizzeria. (paraphrased from his site, About Tony Gemignani - World Pizza Cup Champion Tony Gemignani )

I’m not sure if Tony was still at Pyzano’s around 1997, but they made a damn good pie back then.

Tony is a multi award winner from the Naples Pizza Olympics…he first gained fame as a pizza acrobat, spinning the dough “rounds” behind his back, between his legs, etc…picture Harlem Globetrotters…he has won many awards since for the pizzas…the only question is: will these franchised SoCal locations maintain the quality…In his flagship, Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in SFs North Beach, he has been making great Neapolitan pies for 10+years…he has 6 different ovens and offers every imaginable style, which some people feel is an over-reach…Im looking forward to these opening soon…I had only heard of 1000 Oaks…interesting that its a multiple opening…

He opened TPN in SF in 2012


Where in SoCal?

The Thousand Oaks location I actually passed by. The others I found listed on the website. Wonder where the Sherman Oaks location will be (not surprised if it will be the mall.) But that means I can do a side by side with an Anthony pie lol

It’s kinda scary to me when any restaurant/pizzeria expands like that


Pie Trap Pizza in Covina is pretty damn good NY pizza. Ordered a thin crust Supreme Clientele which is basically a deluxe pie. Loved everything about this pie, highly impressed with the execution. They just sold out of thick crust square slices as I arrived which looked excellent, I’ll be back to try those next along with more thin crust slices.

Bianco lunch version. “Ny style” pies. I’m not an east coaster so I can’t vouch for authenticity but I’m pretty sure it’s not truly “ny style” but also who the fuck cares because it’s the best “ny style” pizza I’ve had in LA. Better than Danny boys, prime, pizza wagon, etc etc.

It’s crazy how LA went from pizza wasteland to maybe the best variety of pizza in the country in 10 years.

I’m not usually a plain cheese fan (except for margherita neopolitan style) but I could eat a whole pie of those!


Some pizzeria sei today. Sergio was not in the house but pizza was still :fire:
