Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 78 comments

As a New Yorker, I'm unfit to make the call on whether or not we have the best pizza in the world.

But if you, as a visitor to our fair city, want to make the call for yourself, you should start by getting the best that the city has to offer. More

Morristown, NJ: Millie's Old World Unites Two Ovens Under One Roof

Slice Casey Barber 3 comments

Millie's Old World, a snazzy new spot on Morristown's main drag, has not one, but two types of ovens. The first, a wood-fired import from Naples, is capable of churning out Neapolitan pizzas in 90 seconds flat; the second, a coal-burning oven, yields a chewier (but equally flavorful) crust. Why not pick just one style of pizza? According to Marlene Carrabba, mother of sibling owners Vince and Brandon, her boys each had a favorite and couldn't choose between the two. So, in true Jersey style, they went with both. More

BREAKING: Health Dept. Closes Di Fara Pizza

Adam Kuban 9 comments

Noooooo!!!!!! Slice reader Gabriel S. just emailed me: "Went by Di Fara looking for a slice today and saw that they were shut by the board of health yesterday. Do you have any details?" I just called Dom DeMarco proprietor of legendary Brooklyn pizzeria Di Fara. He was at the restaurant, and he confirms that the Department of Health has closed the place "for little things." "They say I've gotta wear gloves now—and a hat," Mr. DeMarco said. "It's all little things, like everybody else." Despite the crap news, Dom seemed pretty chipper, taking things in stride. "I'd only wear a hat if I were bald. I'd rather pay the fine than wear the hat." Mr. DeMarco estimates he'll be... More

Alaina Browne Post a comment

Could you eat an entire 20-inch pizza by yourself? With two toppings? What if it guaranteed you free pizza for a year? Blogger Bear Silber reaches for the eye of the tiger: The Pizza and Pipes Belly Buster challenge was a success. A few men set out to make history, two became boys while one became a legend.

The Hall of Shame is filled with Polaroids of individuals who’ve attempted to conquer the Belly Buster while the Hall of Fame lay bare. Did... More
