New York Pizza Not as Good as It Once Was

Everyone’s talking about the lowered ranking of New York pizza nationwide.  In my opinion, it has more to do with the loss of the old Italian neighborhoods than anything else.  Let’s face it, “New York pizza” was pizza created by the Italian immigrants of the late 1800s-early 1900s, and the times have changed.  Pizza in the United States evolved to something else.  I can’t really find great New York pizza myself; I haven’t eaten great pizza in a long time.  I’d say I had a good pie at John’s on Bleecker last year and at Lombardi’s in Little Italy last year.  I don’t eat it that often, so I can’t speak about the $1 slice places, although there’s one near my apartment that smells really good.  Di Fara’s is my all-time favorite, but it probably will not be the same if Dominic is not making it.  I have tried a couple of the Neapolitan pizza places, but they weren’t my favorite.  I’m very picky when it comes to pizza.  It has to be the perfect combination of sauce, cheese and crust, and it’s really not easy to do.

  1. I love pizza but I’m very picky also. If there’s too much sauce, topping, or the crust is soggy it feels like a waste. Only a few places make a good slice of pizza where we live. New York has so many more options!
