What do you think is the best pizza in the city? It is such a treat to live in this area and have access to such great pizza. After growing up on the Pizza here it is really painful to go to places like Chicago or the sunbelt and eat the things they call pizza.

If you have ever made your own pizza from scratch you will recognize the skill involved with making a good Napolitan pie, it is really easy to make the crust thick but it takes skill and experience to make the crust thin and delicious. This outrageous thin crust makes New York pizza the best pizza west of Naples. Those deep dish Chicago pizzas are really amateur hour time, not sure if ti is a lack of dough skills or lack or expousure to good pizza that lead them to favor those English pot pie looking/tasting things.

There are still a few really great slices out there. Where are your spots? Here are mine.

My Votes;

Best napolitan slice
Amore Pizza (http://www.amorepizza.org/ - broken link) Flushing, Queens


Best Sicilian Slice
L & B Spumoni Gardens
Bensonhurst, Brooklyn

Best Upscale Pie
Grimaldi's (http://www.grimaldis.com/brooklyn.htm - broken link)Dumbo Brooklyn

Grimaldi's Pizza, probably the best pizza I've had. Not sure I would call that place upscale though, lol.

I work in Park Slope, I think there better than Pinos. For a regular slice I like Roma alot on 7th.

I live walking distance to L&B so I can attest to the greatness that is their sicilian but their regular round is among the best I have had in the area.

For a place where you can't buy a slice, only a pie: Grimaldi's

For pizza by the slice, I really like Mariella's on 3rd Ave and 16th St. in Manhattan

Goodfella's Gourmet pizza in Staten Island...and I think they opened up in Brooklyn as well now. No by the slice, but they have a very small personal pie. All fresh, deli cut Mozzarella, none of that pre processed grated crap. Voted #1 pizza in America at some Vegas pizza show 2-3 times.

Of course I may be biased as I was a pizza chef there when I was 17...

not a New Yorker, but try as many different pizza places as I can everytime I visit. As in eating it 4x a day.

I would say- my personal fave- John's of Bleecker

2nd Grimaldi's- DUMBO.

My family states I am WRONG and Grimaldi's is better.

As for you having access to ALL of these outstanding pizza places. I am jealous and you suck It makes of the country's pies look like s**t.
