Steve Fenerjian opened the first Mangia Neapolitan Pizza in Brookline in 2003, setting his business apart from other pie shops through his use of healthy bleach-free whole wheat and wholesome locally-sourced organic veggies. The Mangia empire has expanded considerable since then, but their approach to pizza remains the same. At each pizzeria, chefs select flour milled to exact specifications, and sprinkle the resulting dough with traditional toppings including sweetener-free tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, chopped clams, eggplant, basil, pesto, and prosciutto. Then, they cook Mangia's celebrated pizzas in the traditional Neapolitan way⎯roasting each pie a sizzling stone that leaves crusts crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. These expertly fashioned New Haven-style pizzas pair well with the pizzeria’s other offerings, which range from hearty roll-ups and deli sandwiches to sauce-covered chicken wings.
