A native of Naples, Italy, Massimo Andreozzi brings more than a decade of experience baking traditional Neapolitan pizza to his role as Fritti’s head pizzaiolo. Andreozzi’s passion for excellence and dedication to delivering authentic flavor true to his Italian roots have helped make Fritti one of Inman Park’s most popular destinations. Atlanta’s first eatery to serve pizza made in the traditional Neapolitan style, Fritti opened in 2001.
Andreozzi honed his craft in his native Italy where he was the head pizzaiolo at restaurants across the peninsula from Rome and Naples to Costa Esmeralda and Ancona. A consummate leader with an innovative culinary palate, Andreozzi developed menus and mentored junior chefs at Napule in Polignano a Mare, Italy, and also at La Riviera Pola in Spain before traveling stateside in 2007.
Prior to joining the team at Fritti, Andreozzi was the head pizzaiolo at Fratelli la Bufala in Miami, Fla., where he crafted more than 300 pizzas daily in the traditional Neapolitan style.
Andreozzi lives in Atlanta with his wife and children. He is fluent in Italian, Spanish and conversational in English.
