Pizza luce doesn't deep fry anything. The meatballs are cooked in an oven like most everything there.

Luce's pretty unique in its extreme variety of possible ingredients, and the red sauce is pretty tasty IMO, but the crust is definitly not the NY style the poster is looking for.

Fat Lorenzo's is horrible.

I lived in New Jersey for about 5 years and have to admit I was never a big fan of NY style pizza. I went to Ray's Original and Original Ray's, Pizza Box on Bleeker, my favorite was John's Pizza in the West Village. The places in New Jersey were basically all the same IMO (one thing I definitely miss about NJ is how easily it was to get Chicken Parmigiana sandwiches). That's one thing I've always liked about the Twin Cities--that there is such a variety of pizzas to choose from. My favorite local places would include:

Uptown Pizza (spicy red sauce)
Carbones (classic greasy style)
Leaning Tower of Pizza
Red's Savoy Pizza
Michaelangelo's on 50th Street
Punch, Black Sheep and Pizza Nea
Dulono's (another classic greasy style, best eaten while listening to live bluegrass music on weekend nights)

I tried Jakeenos recently....tasted a lot like the pizza they used to serve in the elementary school cafeteria. I really wanted to like it as I really appreciate what they stand for (family owned, not the best neighborhood)...but I just couldn't enjoy it.

Again, when I say NY style, i'm looking for a large piece, cut into a triangle, not too thin crust, but certainly not deep dish (lets say just a bit thinner than pizza hut/dominos etc)...should be able to fold it in half when eating.

I also tried cossetas this weekend - would have been good but it was very soupy (too much sauce) and just fell apart.

I did buy some pizza dough there however, and decided to (and did) make a much better pizza at home.

I had a discussion this past weekend about Cosetta's with some friends. The consensus (and it's always been my belief) is that it's a neat place, an interesting experience and neighbourhood, but NOBODY goes there for the food. It is extremely average, cafeteria-style food, including their pizza.

For "gourmet" pizza, sometimes we like Pizza Nea on Central near Surdyk's. Great food but no atmosphere. You want to leave when you're finished eating.

Italian Pie Shoppe in St Paul is good too.

I tend to agree...the food was alright, but nothing great. It is a neat place with a cool little market attached. Will I go back? Yes - for the market, but not necessarily the food.
