Hi all,
Thinking about Pizza here. With all the people around Charlotte from NY/NJ/CT who knows where to get good pizza like from home? I've been in NC (Fayetteville) since August, and CANNOT find decent pizza. My parents moved to SC 2 yrs ago and found one place by accident where if you say you want pizza like you were in NY they'll make it for you special, apparantly they opened (from NY) and made pizza like they did in NY and people in SC didn't like it so they changed to the, to me, doughy, less cooked variety so ubiquitous here in the Carolinas.
I'm DYING for good pizza and my husband moves to Charlotte in 3 weeks!
thanks!
Joan

I see this question all the time on here. Can you describe for me what a NY/NJ/CT style pizza is like? By not doughy, do you mean a thinner, crisper crust?

It's not necessarily all that thin....I don't know how they do it, but it is thinner than most I've seen here, but it's much more well done, crispier/crunchier definitely NOT mushy. Maybe someone else out there can explain it better. I lived in CT almost all my life, save for a year in CA and college in NY (good pizza, of course in upstate NY, don't remember CA, I was too young). Pizza had always been one of my favorite foods and I can't say that I've had any I liked in a long time

Thanks for mentioning that it's been here before I should have checked. I found another thread on the topic, I'll look there. If anyone has something new to post that'd be great too!

Tony's Pizza is good New York Style Pizza. They are actually from NY. It's the best pizza I have had.

Default thanks

We are moving from LI to Marvin in July, and Pizza on Friday nights is a 20 year tradition for my wife and I. Tony's in Ballentyne will be our first Friday dinner.
BTW - we're building in Bridle Path and did a fair amount of research if I can assist in any way.

Nothing comares to Pepe's in New Haven of course One of the places here dares to call one of their pizzas pepe's white clam..OMG it is so far off..I called them and talked to the chef and told him that he needed to book himself a ticket to CT because he obviously has never tasted a real white clam pizza from pepe's.

I don't know what it is..people move here from CT and NY and open up pizza places but I think along the way they forget how to make it..the pizza here is okay but doesn't compare

I recently tried Marino's in Waxhaw - accross from Alma Village. They are from Philly, but their pizza is excellent - just like from manhattan. If its not too far from where you are, you may want to give it a try.

Palones Pizza at the intersection of Ardrey Kell Rd & Tom Short Rd in Ballantyne. It's in "The Fountains" shopping center. Pizza is great, owners are from Long Island. Ask for a Sfogiatelle while you're in there!!!!
