Big Pizza

i live in NY, we have the best pizza. I am sorry but others just do not compare. But the other day I went to a place and got this:



Notice this one slice takes three plates to hold it.

I could eat that entire slice - but too many black olives. Throw some pepperoni and red onion on it and I'm good to go.

Maybe they are washers or o-rings.

I have never been found of NY pizza. It has always seemed that size is more important than ingredients, taste, etc.

My single greatest regret in life was not getting pizza when I was in NYC.

I did get the cheesecake and subs.

Are you kidding? It's not about the size at all. (The OP's discovery was an exception, not a rule.) The pizza here is generally awesome, and available in tons of hole-in-the-wall places. Typical NY pizzas (usually bythe slice, btw) are no bigger than the average chain pizza, and smaller than the jumbo ones. The thin crust and tasty sauce really make it IMO. KVRD, how often do you come to NYC? Didn't even know you had a passport!

BTW, M2tA, where is that pizza from? Is it a shop way up on the West Side? Is it as good as the normal-sized slices?

Bad move, but it would be a sin to go to Chicago and do the same.....

EXACTLY! The one reason to pity New Yorkers is the pitiful state of their pizza. Chicago's is far superior.

Second runner up would be Quatro's deep pan pizza in Carbondale, Ill.

I agree... The main problem is, when you go to a pizza joint here in NYC, its been cooked already and sitting out for a while. They take it, heat it up for maybe 2-mins, and its not very good because its usually not very hot, and tastes old. I asked this to many NY'ers who have been here their whole life, and they say the pizza here has changed in the last 5-7 years and its not very good anymore. Plus, most places arent even own and operated by Italian-Americans anymore. Hell, all the pizza shops around where I work are owned by Indians.

Now when I get a whole pie that is cooked fresh, there are some really good shops here in Astoria (Gaudios and Rizzos)...

Chicago pizza has always been far superior, in my mind.

But yeah...that's a big slice of pizza!

That looks damn good. And I love olives.

Roaches would be quite bigger.

That's not pizza, that's bread with toppings.

Good, but not "traditional pizza"...

Mmmm. How much was that slice? I miss NYC pizza myself; haven't had it in nearly ten years. Each slice was almost a meal onto itself. The crust was always just right, not too thick or thin, and the mozzarella was always so tangy and chewy. No other pizza places ever came close to that quality.

Never had "real" Chicago pizza; the closest I get is Pizzeria Uno, which I also enjoy. They have the best outer crusts -- it's like eating fresh breadsticks

I agree the best pizza is here. There's this one place on 23rd between madison and lex I think, I forgot the name but the pizza was unbelievable. There's this one place called Pizza Park near where I work. They do a lot of different types of pizza. They have pizza's like a chicken caesar salad pizza, or a taco pizza, and many more that you wouldn't find at a normal pizza restaurant.

My wife and I have only recently been traveling together, but I have always made it a point, no matter where we go we always hit the art museum and eat local pizza.
When my wife and I went to Chicago she was not itnerested in the pizza because she dislikes chunky tomato sauce, but i insisted we eat the pizza. she now praises it as her favorite pizza ever (Geno's East).
She has never been to NYC, I was when I was a kid, and i remember loving the thin, greasy slices in the hole in the wall shops, but it has been awhile since i have eaten it. I mayhave to plan a trip this summer.
