    How long would you wait in line for food? If you live in San Francisco long enough to get a restaurant shut down.

    Una Pizza Napoletana may not be the new Ike's but pizza chef Anthony Mangieri sure has people riled up.

    Una Pizza Napoletana opened Wednesday night in San Francisco to a line down the block just waiting to get in. People even flew in from the east coast to get a bite of $20 pizza, according to Eater SF. A priest was even on hand to bless the festivities.

    Why all the fuss? People are passionate about pizza and Mangieri is a cult icon. The pizza extraordinaire built a following making pizzas without yeast in New York.

    He has since moved to the Bay Area and brought a handmade oven from Naples with him. Lost in all the fuss is the simplicity of the pies Mangieri is serving.

    Hungry eaters must drop $20 to get their hands on a 12-inch pie that only comes in four varieties: marinara, white, marinara with cheese, and cherry tomato with cheese.

    The restaurant will be open Wednesday through Saturday, from 5 p.m. until the dough runs out.
