A Lifetime's Dedication to Your Craft
The fleeting moments of happiness in making pizza
Chef Anthony Mangieri has been making pizzas since he was 15 years old. His passion for the craft of pizza-making shows as he gives us a peek inside his process for making New York's best pizza. From experimenting with the flour to using quality ingredients to the exact process of baking the pizza in his handcrafted oven, we get to experience his lifetime dedication to perfecting his craft.
"Making pizza the way we do it is such a fleeting moment of happiness. The more you do it, the more you are aware of all the imperfections in it."
What I love about Chef Anthony Mangieri's ethos is that he creates amazing pizza every day, but he doesn't let today's success keep him from his ultimate goal to keep improving and finding ways to get better. He continually evolves and focuses on improving his craft.
Making great pizza and honing his craft is his life’s purpose, which transcends all his experiences in life.
As Chef Anthony Mangieri said, "If you spend 30 years of your life doing something, you're going to find your voice within it."
His ethos of never settling for good or great, instead keeping your focus and dedication to one’s craft, is something we can all gain inspiration from.
What would you spend 30 years of your life perfecting? Share your thoughts in the comments! I would love to know.
Keep on smashing it!
