Ok, it's getting down to the wire and I'm starting to finalize/revise/change our itinerary. These are some places that are going to sub-in for others- and to get a Five Burroughs representation of New York pizza, I'm really considering. I've axed a few Neapolitan places, in favor of more quintessential (I know, not necessarily better) places that are classic New York style. So, some of the individual, Naples-style pies that do not come served in whole pies, consisting of slices are, well, out for this trip. Please chime in if you feel these are out of line for a "definitve" NY style pizza education!
1.New Park(Howard Beach)
2.Louie and Ernie's
3.Denino's (some say this is the only truly great pie on Staten Island, while others insist Joe and Pat's and Nunzio's are primo too. It would sure make the trip worth it if there was more than one "must")
4.Sac's Place (already recommended by Pizza Blogger)
*Would love to hit Johnny's in Mt Vernon, but just too far out of the way. Looks delicious!
Many of you have already said these are musts. I've not heard much talk on this forum about New Park, but some say it's at the top. So, if I hit these, I potentially don't hit Motorino, Roberta's, Keste, and Luzzo's.
