Luigi's on 5th, aaaaahh.....

Poll: Cornmeal on Pizza Crust, Way or No Way?

Been there said AC said this;
Almost no discussion of the Arthur Avenue pizza scene on the internet would be complete without someone mentioning Full Moon Pizza, on the corner of 187th Street.(BX) Long before I'd ever visited this traditionally Italian neighborhood I had people telling me that Full Moon was one of the best in the city.

So whenever I'm on the avenue, I try a slice. And, folks, I'm kinda not blown away by it. It's good, sure. It's got a nice, crisp crust, a certain chewiness. The cheese is good, and it's in proper proportion to the bread and sauce. But it's just never struck me as a great slice — certainly not one I'd make a special trip for.

And, no, it's not the cornmeal-dusted crust. I'm down with cornmeal-dusted crusts..."

Home Slice: All-Edge Sicilian Pan Pizza (with a Nod to Detroit)

You are now officially on Michelle Obama's hit list.

Dept. of Health Temporarily Closes Di Fara... Again

No one disputes the quality of the slice. But you can't convince me the "special sauce" is vermin and their poop. The price is premium, and people are paying it. Hire some UNEMPLOYED AND WILLING labor, there should be plenty available in BK, to clean the place up and let's move on!

Di Fara: Rant and Response

Get a good lawyer Adam. She's a lot smarter than you. If the time ever comes you won't be left with the five bucks you need to buy a slice of that overpriced peasant's bread.Your wifey sees through the Emperor's New Clothes.The pizza is good, but not worth putting up with all the crap you have to go through to get it. Maybe we should have an Occupy D'Fara if only to get some of the windfall of money re-invested into a little more space, some service and definitely a modicum of cleanliness. If being a hater is asking not to be treated like part of a herd when you put your earned dollars down then so be it. I'll eat at Paulie's and accept the label.If you can't stand for something besides self abuse, you'll fall for anything.

Stopped by today to do quality assurance. The line was out the door, but moved quickly as always. How they do it with one oven needs explanation.Still on the money, ($2.75 per). Go Joe Go!

Gotta give him his props. Someone on his staff knows the real deal about where to get the primo NYC slice. Didn't even fool around with the runner ups.

Daily Slice: Viva Slice at Rigoletto, Upper West Side

A grade above ordinary, flavorful and worthy of returns.Try the piquaint sauces that can be added on from the counter, Indian spiciness an added plus.Given a chance it holds up well against the street slice competitors.

Cowabunga dude, me and the boys are on the way!

Pizza Obsessives: Kevin Hayes, Slice Westchester Contributor

Kevin, check out Gino's on South Broadway, to the left of the defunct movie theatre. If you don't like what you see tell Joe or Tony to make it "HOT". Place is a Yonkers legend. A joint that makes pizza only, no sandwiches, can't survive if it isn't #1. If you like, hook me up and we can do Staten Island, the Lost World, on a crawl.

NYC Quintessential: Eat at Joe's Pizza

If it's a slice and I could only have a single choice, this is the one. Sure they have their days with entire tour buses stopping by, but in general their consistency is remarkable. Over the years they are the slice standard that I measure NYC' s newbies against. So far the easy winner and still champ.

Daily Slice: Fresh Mozzarella from Luigi's in Brooklyn

Try it before you turn your nose up. Came from the Bx to try this spot months ag and was very impressed with their regular slice. As good a street slice as I HAVE EVER eaten.Way, way underrated.Don't confuse it with Luigi's down the street next to the Prospect Expressway.That was ordinary.This place is a Brooklyn gem.Enjoy it!

Slice Advice for the Obamas: When in Martha's Vineyard, Go to Joey's Pizza in Oak Bluffs

The Fresh Pasta Shop outside Edgartown, that's where all the construction guys and cops on the island go. It's run by the Soup Nazi's little brother, the Pizza Nazi. Seriously, he's mellowed and his combo slices, try the Mexican, if you dare, are unbelievable. After the seafood his pizza is the only food on the island that stands up to the island's rep. I love the MV. Tried the others, his is the best by far, and not close to the most expensive. And I'm from NYC, so I know my way around a slice. Yeah,he has the usual "Best on the island" awards and other BS hanging on the wall, but the taste buds tell the tale. You heard it here, THE FRESH PASTA SHOP right outside Edgartown across from Stop and Shop and down towards town a little. Enjoy!

Check out the goods in front of Mr. Plaid shirt. Certainly worth 20 hard earned dollarsI This pie-let looks like it came along with the Emprah's New Clothes.My pie Monday looks a lot more appetizing than what I'm seeing.Caveat Emptor.

Openings: Paulie Gee's, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

This has been in the works for some time, but it's now official: Paulie Gee (aka Paul Gianonne) has signed the lease on the former Paloma space at 60 Greenpoint Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and is hoping to open Paulie Gee's by December. Anyone familiar with the Paulie Gee mythos won't find it surprising that his place will be a wood-fired Neapolitan-style joint. The oven is being built in Naples now and will be shipped over soon. Gianonne says he'll be the sole pizzaman at Paulie Gee's but will have an assistant trained and ready to step in at... More
