Una Pizza Napolitana is a frill-less but superior neighborhood pizzeria. The neighborhood would seem to be somewhere in Naples, if it werenat for the Manhattan pricing ($17 a pie is the main complaint from customers). Anthony Mangierias perfectionist pizzas originated in Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey; the operation was transplanted later to the East Village. On the menu are just four pies (all individual)ano appetizers, no sides, no extras. Instead of lots of tongue-numbingly salty toppings, the basic ingredients do the work here, and that starts with the perfect dough, the perfect kneading, and the extremely hot wood-burning oven. It continues with buffalo mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, fresh cherry tomatoes, basil, and sea salt.
