I don't. I have been to none of these "best pizza places" as they were paid to rank...i have found quite a few terribly good places in Queens but none made it to this list:


These are New York City's best pizza restaurants

I went to Roberta's when my friend was working in East Williamsburg. Not only do they take a long time to make it but the pizzas they gave us were tiny and flavorless. The place was packed wall to wall with yuppies and it was overpriced.

Next time we wanted pizza I walked down to the area by the projects and went to a normal, non renowned pizza parlor. Not only did it taste 100x better but it was cooked on time.

Only one on the list I haven't tried is Beebe's, and I'll say that I enjoyed all those pizzas. However, I think there are pizzerias that are better than some of the ones mentioned on that list. Just off the top of my head, some perhaps more deserving pizzas are the cheese slice that Rosario's Deli has sometimes, the Rizzo's thin crust in Astoria, the upside sicilian at Rosa's Pizza in Ridgewood off of Fresh Pond Road, and the sicilian at l&b spumoni gardens.

Very well said! Whenever I want a good authentic slice of pizza, I go by the projects on Dyckman street in Inwood. That pizza is the best ever. No yuppies, no overpricing, and large slices.

I used to walk the mile or so to there for a slice or two and then walk back. Not the most efficient exercise regimen.

I rate foods as quality//price.
By this standard the clear winners most all the time are the $.99 pizza joints. Only once have I had a near inedible bummer, on 37th and Eight. It was lying on display, obviously cold and dry. A couple seconds in the oven didn't do the trick...garbage. Last I checked I think they were gone.
When people aren't lined up for $.99 pizza, you KNOW you have hit a bummer.


Crowded places with pizzas coming out red hot every minute or two and immediately served are the best

Some stranger left a rep and a picky comment “ you really couldn’t think of a specific title line?”...

Well, be it, thanks for the lol...

Mr kk, do yourself a favor, stop swallowing those 99cent apiece junk...it is cheap for a reason. They are literally a simple mix of dough with tomato sauce.
Venture out to queens for some real and affordable pizza, like the ones at romeos. https://www.allmenus.com/ny/fresh-me...eos-pizza/amp/

And that is the very definition of PIZZA. exactly what it should be. You expect me to go from the UES to Fresh Meadows for a slice of pizza?
People in my building have a steady stream of Delizia pizza coming in (corner of 92nd and Second.) thought there MUST be something to it, so I told partner we should try it. Pepperoni was $16.95 <not sold by the slice> and far inferior to any $.99 slice. We had a Papa John's in 91st fail (God awful pizza.) Domino's on THird went under, and the latest, evev RAY'S at 94th and Second (good Pizza but $2.75 plain, GREAT lasagna) failed the First of the year. They were a neighborhood fixture fixture.


So now we are stuck with the expensive but decidedly UNdelicious DELIZIA.
There WAS a $.99 joint on 86th just West of First but they failed a couple years ago in spite of a very tasty pie.


Oh, Nick'ss on 94th and Second sells a lot of Pizza but more like in a sit-down dinner setting and $20 plain pies. When we went there we ordered the family style Italian entrees, like veal Milanese, CHicken Francese and eggplant, never pizza

I guess commercial rents are the killer up here. Additionally, blocks are being bought up, leases are expired and up goes another 45 story housing tower.
