The pizza in NYC generally does suck.
Amish Market pizza is nice. Spunto's is good too, but it's really just because of the thin crust...
The pizza in NYC does not generally suck. It is the best pizza in the world. Of course, there are tons of pizza places, and most of them suck, but there are so many good pizza places there that saying there are 2 pizza places in NYC that you like just makes you look like you don't know what you're talking about or you're very angry at the world. HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT THE PIZZA IN NYC SUCKS
That's another thing I hate about this guy. How can he shit on all those people working their asses off making pizza in NYC? Just because they aren't *pizza artists* who tiled their pizzeria by hand and also apparently trust-fund babies who can afford to knock out their ovens because they look funny and have a custom oven shipped from Italy, that doesn't mean that none of them care about making food, or that they're all bad at their jobs and ignorant.
ITT the reason that people hate New Yorkers
When I saw that guy's arm tattoos I thought for a second he had some sort of horrible fungus problem.
Generalizing the entire city of NYC cannot possibly be accurate.
This bullshit pizza where the cheese doesn't cover the rest of it can go to hell.

Fiving this because I've worked with multiple guys like this from several types of food, and I really can't stand them.
Every other thing they say is shitting on something, because there's only *one right way* to do their type of food, which is *really old* and a *super-sacred tradition* and they are *sacrificing so much for it* and *how can people eat that other crap?*
And when they get their way, and everything falls together just right, and they're making it just the way they want (which still isn't enough to make them happy), you know what happens every time? It isn't nearly as good as you'd expect from all the bullshit they hang on doing it *right,* and the only people who do think it's that good are their annoying foodie fans who are all caught up in this completely false, artificially-generated majesty and high drama.
Not only is it not as good, but you can almost always find scores of people who do it better because they aren't so intent on being food martyrs and they allow themselves to have fun, be creative and playful, and even make *mistakes* by trying new things.

"The pizza in NYC generally does suck"
"Of course, there are tons of pizza places, and most of them suck"
How about you list some of your favorites? Maybe that will help you feel less angry?
meant for baleen's post obviously
Because even a sucky pizza place, even a ripoff shitty all night pizza place in the East Village, is better than the majority of the pizza you can get anywhere in this country or the world.
I haven't lived in NYC in about 3 years, but there were so many places that I liked to go (and for different reasons) that I won't bother. There are thousands of pizza places and many of those places, for new york, are mediocre or poor, but you know your pizza shops scattered around town and your return to them.
I realize that I am seem like I am nitpicking for the sake of being a dick. I live in Portland now. I have found some good pizza, but most of it is a sad thing, and way overpriced.
Well the best pizza I ever had was the deep dish at Regents Pizza in La Jolla. I had never tried deep dish before, but once I had it at Regents I knew I would never taste a better pie.
Everyone I took there came to the same conclusion. It was owned by a European couple (I couldn't tell where they were from...it didn't seem like Italy), but they eventually got bought out by some corporation that kept the name, but did things like put the employees in uniforms.
The magic was gone, this world has not seen a greater pizza tragedy.
Good pizza can happen anywhere but in NYC it's all over the place.
Wow, I just found that this is in SF. where I am visiting right now.
I'm going there tonight.
I'll report back with my findings.
Make that tomorrow.
They are open Wed -> Sat.
This was actually really good!
The crust was nice and bready, very different from what I've had in recent history.
Definitely some of the best pizza I've had in a while. One pie is , which I split, but you really need two for a full meal.
Was certainly worth the visit, and a nice space.
Thanks for the review. I'll be there in a week so I'll give it a try.

Blah blah blah. Chicago pizza kicks the snot out of anything NYC has to offer. *Had one slice of pizza in New York 5 years ago so I know what I'm talking about.
I had some good pizza when I lived in Chicago too but it wasn't as good as the pizza I had when I lived in NYC so there.
I've been unimpressed by NY pizza. I try it every time I visit because I hear it's so good but I'm giving up. There's a reason the guy in this video packed up and moved to California. West coast pizza is going to be better 99% of the time.

Is pizza snobbery the most pointless type of snobbery?
And by that I mean snobbery over which place has the best pizza, which is even dumber than snobbery over the taste of pizza.
|Xenocide - 2011-08-02 |
I'm not from an interesting city with its own secret shaolin pizza techniques, so I'm afraid I don't have the chops to enlist in your savage and unending pizza war.
You know what I like? When the cheese melts over the pepperoni.
|StanleyPain - 2011-08-02 |
There's really only one key to good pizza:
good, fresh ingredients
That's about it. Everything else is just snobbery and different techniques that create slight variations in flavor etc. The best pizza places I've eaten at have easily been places where they used quality ingredients and kept the recipes simple and straightforward.

"Duck Hunt" is the only video game, and if you're not playing "Duck Hunt", you're not playing video games, you're playing what the Man CALLS video games, some sort of CORPORATE MONSTROSITY. Here, I've written a blog about my ideas.
DON'T WALK OUT OF HERE, I'M ONLY TELLING YOU THE TRUTH.

You pizza nerds are all just wannabes and poseur sheeple!!! New York and Chicago can suck it! WOOSTER STREET NEW HAVEN ALL THE WAY BABY WOOOO!
Also, Korean pizza. Who can argue with ketchup, mayonnaise, and diced sweet potato paste?
|Born in the RSR - 2011-08-02 |
I wanna tell this guy that in my neck of the woods we put ketchup on pizza (you get the opt for sweet or spicy) just so I can see him freak out.

i like the pizza from the store that comes with the cookies
|kingofthenothing - 2011-08-02 |
I almost want to find this guy's shop, eat his pizza, and go "Man, I've had Hot Pockets that taste better than this dogshit." I mean he might serve some great stuff but damn if he doesn't need to get knocked down a few pegs.
Yeah, you can tell a lot about him just by the way he acts and looks.
Overbearing, withholding father of a conservative/religious bent. Difficulty with the concept of adaptation to change. Might possibly have had early run-ins with fancies of a religious vocation (the Madonna statue here in a pizzeria tells a lot). Probably 3rd generation immigrant, fancies himself an expert, regrets that his father whom he idolizes wasn't a badass mafioso like the ones in the movies (probably a military/police type).
If he didn't make pizza, he'd be a Bachmann Booster.

I've enjoyed the NYC pizza I have tried, although my very favorite slice was from some tiny hole in the wall place in Boston
|Riskbreaker - 2011-08-02 |
I hate snobs, but i've eaten some truly awful pizza in my life. So i'm ok with guys like this one existing.
|twinkieafternoon - 2011-08-02 |
Would you fuck his pizza oven?
He would fuck his pizza oven.

There's a liquor store in my town that has some of the best pies in Michigan and it's obvious that it's a complete fluke. A 16 inch cheese pie is .99 if you pick it up and it's mindblowing almost every time. I can't eat there anymore though because some total creep who looks like Bob Dylan and punched my friend in the head with brass knuckles works there.

The buffalo mozzarella he speaks of is made from water buffalo (according to Wikipedia). I can't imagine the buffalo mozzarella in the US is made from water buffalo.
Also, the best pizza in the world is from Blackthorn pub in St. Louis.
|Robin Kestrel - 2011-08-03 |
All pizzas are made in sort sort of magical hand-built wood oven by a pretentious wizard who knows how to make exactly four kinds of pizza, once you decode the faux-classy "Pizze" menu...
There are two red-sauced pizzas: the Margherita (cheese, no oregano) and the Marinara (oregano, no cheese).
There are two white (no sauce) pizzas: the Bianca (cheese & garlic) and the Filetti (cheese & garlic plus cherry tomatoes).
All pizzas are made with olive oil, basil, and salt. God help you if you ask for oregano on your cheese pizza that this Pizza Nazi "artiste" is probably charging a small fortune for.
|FreeOJ - 2011-08-03 |
NYC has good pizzas, I would have to disagree with you pretentious pizza maker man.
|fluffy - 2013-02-08 |
So a friend of mine back in San Francisco went here to see if it was any good. Apparently the crust was overly salty, and it cost /slice. Fuck this shitty person right in the eyehole.
