NYC Flavor: Why Our Authentic New York Pizza Will Make Your Day

The fact that pizza joints in other states import the water for their dough tells you a lot about the reputation and influence of New York pizza. It’s not just a pie style, it’s an attitude, a lifestyle; it’s the city that never sleeps.

The title of best pizza place in New York is hotly contested, but the pizza itself is an undisputed champion. It’s an essential part of any visit, and the locals love it, too. If you really want to understand the Big Apple, you have to start with its favorite food.

What is New York Style Pizza?

Here’s a quick guide to the classic New York slice (or a not-so-quick one, if you’ve got a few minutes to spare). 

The constant hustle of the Big Apple demands a pizza that can be eaten on the go. No drooping slices here. A good slice of New York pizza not only holds its own weight but can be easily folded with one hand for an on-the-go bite. It comes down to that thin yet sturdy crust, crisp on the outside and soft and chewy where it counts. Combined with a tasty sauce – every pizzeria has its own take – and a healthy but not overwhelming helping of cheese, it’s the stuff of delicious New York dreams.

Slices are the classic way to enjoy pizza in NYC, but it comes in pies, too. They’re usually big enough to share, although you might not want to. Whether it’s plain cheese or piled with toppings, the humble New York slice’s icon status is absolutely deserved.

Slice, Grab, Go: The Authentic NYC Pizza Experience

Here’s what’s on the menu: New York. It’s the city on a plate. It might be known as the Big Apple, but there’s a special place in its big, cynical heart for pizza. Specifically, the eponymous pie. It might have originated in Italy, but this is where it truly became a star. As the song says, if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere. 

There’s a pizzeria on just about every street, no matter the neighborhood. A great slice is a short walk from every iconic landmark. If pizza is anything, it’s accessible – 24/7, if need be. And every pizzeria has its own personality, from the greasy cheap slices to cozy community hubs to the quirky upmarket urban eateries. United in a love for the New York-style pie, yet always fiercely independent. That’s the New York way.

Pizza has personality, and it’s on the move – New York-style means designed to be eaten on the go, because that’s how we roll. It’s called the city that never sleeps for a reason. If you’re awake, so is pizza – and takeout has never been easier
