I'm glad you got to visit Best Pizza and Mast Brothers Chocolate Norma. Did you like the chocolate?
The square at Rizzo's looks pretty good Norma. BTW, how loud was the volume dial turned up on the music in Best Pizza? It can get pretty loud in there at times.
To clarify, Norma had asked me to recommend some slice shops (not whole pie joints) which were close to the BQE, of which Best Pizza is very close to it (not too far from being under it). I also happen to think Best Pizza is currently offering one of the best slices I have yet to try in NYC. I also recommended Joe & Pat's in Staten Island since I thought Norma might be taking the Staten Island Expressway home and Joe & Pat's is just off I-278.
Norma, in the last (3rd) picture of reply #6 (http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,16573.msg161667.html#msg161667
), the pizza from the pita place you posted almost looks like it has Zatar spices as a topping. What is on that pizza?
Peter, I burst out laughing and spit a little coffee on my monitor reading your post and looking at the picture you were referring to.
Scott, I've mentioned Best Pizza a few times here now.....so I'm not holding back. BTW, I know this sounds silly, but the simple addition of the sesame seeds Best Pizza puts on near the rim of their white pizza is pure genius....they go so well with the caramelized onions on their white pizza. The regular slice at Best Pizza is a literal time warp back to days past in NYC.
The picture Norma posted of the "I fu&#ing love you man" paper plate next to the Van Halen logo paper plate in Best Pizza is priceless! You may get bombarded with very loud hip-hop music blaring at Best Pizza (which is fine by me), but this place epitomizes a neighborhood slice joint to be proud of. And then there are the sandwiches there.....
