The pizzeria in my old neighborhood, with the best sicilian slice you'll ever eat outside of Italy.
Rosa's Pizza: Experts with Dough, Sauce and Cheese
And this is your proof that NY mountain water makes a superior pizza to what can be found here?

People from NY and Italy are opening up places here. I had a friend from FL last week and she was impressed that pizzerias here routinely hire chefs from Naples and Palermo. She said the pizza coundn't compare to anywhere else she had it.

This is the hottest ticket in town right now. The best pizza you'll ever eat outside of Naples and Palermo.

The idea is that he's "recreating" the pizza. Yeah, not original, nice try though

I just looked at the menu. No garlic knots, no calzones, manicotti, no stromboli, nothing. All you non-italians probably don't know what some of those are, or even the correct way to pronounce it LOL.

I just did a search for NY pizzerias in the Atlanta area. Went on their websites. The pizza looks nothing like NY pizza lol.

And oh yeah, bagels don't come from the Jewish people.

Here ya go, here's a comparison for you to compare the 2 places. Here's a picture of the pizzeria not far from me, and here's that fancy place you described. That restaurant looks like New Haven style pizza, not NY. 2 totally different styles.

No offense, but that looks kinda nasty. I don't know who would put cheddar cheese on a pizza.

Also I know what I am talking about because like I said above I live in the south.

So...even at a restaurant, located in the South, called "New York Pizza" that is run by Italian immigrants from New York? How is that not just as good? I've always wondered this - please enlighten us.

Could you possibly be any more condescending and insulting? And for your information, I had an Italian partner for 10 years LOL.

And I am aware bagels don't come from Jewish people you snot. They just make the best.

I've never seen any bagel stores run by Jewish people. So now you're referring to me as a snot since you know it can't compete lol. Very mature.

She'll argue a point, even after you prove her wrong in 12 different ways. She's right, and that's it. She's better, and that's it. Her way is the best, and that's it.

That's an extremely ignorant way of thinking and not representative of people from NYC - I can say that with confidence.

I guess all of the New Yorkers that are packing in must be a lie, right?

People put all kinds of things on pizza these days. Ever hear of a little place called California Pizza Kitchen?

You can see houses still standing which were built in the 17th century by the Dutch. There is one which Peter Stuyvesant lived in which is still privately owned. I grew up around the corner from it. Go to Chelsea. There are many 18th Century apartment buildings.

If you look, you will find them.

It may be good for the area, but it isn't like ACTUAL NY pizza. Tons of people from Long Island have moved to NC and they come on and say how much they miss "real" bagels and pizza. They say the best NY pizzerias can't compare to how it is at home. Give me a break. I can't even I'm actually having a discussion with you about this lol.
