I can’t believe I have never had Sal’s pizza before! Sal’s has the best slice of New York pizza. If you’re looking for New York-style pizza, Sal’s on Broome Street in Little Italy is the place to go.
While the pizza is great, you should also try the fried calzones. Everywhere you go, calzones are baked. They shouldn’t be! We’ve always eaten calzones fried. Both my grandmas would put mozzarella, ricotta and chunks of ham or salami inside the calzone and then fry it. These were a special treat. We make them now too but not as often, and this brought me back to those fun times.
I recommend the traditional at Sal’s. It is phenomenal. They even have one named the San Gennaro with sausage, peppers and onions.
