Pizza Obsessives: Brooklyn Pizza Tour Guide Tony Muia

Slice Adam Kuban 22 comments

I first met Tony Muia a little more than five years ago, when he was just launching his Slice of Brooklyn pizza tour. More than a just a tour of pizzerias, Muia really gives context to the great pizza of the Borough of Kings, sharing neighborhood histories and showing you iconic movie locations. It's a fun tour—and it doesn't taste so bad, either. Anyway, enough gabbing. Let's get Tony in the hot seat. More

I just wanted to give you a heads-up about an episode I taped for the Food Network's Food Detectives, hosted by Ted Allen. The episode tried to disprove the idea that NYC water is what makes NYC pizza so great. They had John LaFemina, the chef from Apizz in Manhattan, make dough with water from NYC, Chicago, and L.A. I was one of the judges, along with Mario Cantone, Joey Ciolli from... More

New York Post I've had a lot on Slice lately about Scott's Pizza Tours, but you know, there's another pizza tour out there, one that's been around for a bit longer and that takes folks through perhaps the best pizza borough* in the city. And that tour, my friends, is Tony Muia's A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour. Muia started his tour in 2005 and has been taking pizza-hungry folks around Kings County ever since, mixing stops at Grimaldi's and L & B Spumoni Gardens with spin around neighborhoods such as Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst. It's thanks to Muia... More
