Luzzo's was my favorite pizza in NYC for a long time.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

norma after spending a few days at don antonio's in nyc  last week . i was told that the style of Neapolitan i make is American style. most of this is because of the way i stretch my dough.  the cooking method that they use produces a pizza that is not overly charred. all of the pies are pulled from the oven and turned in the mouth or shelf so as not to over bake them. they were shocked when i told them i cooked multiple pizzas and after pulling one out i replaced it with another. they do three to four at a time then do the next three to four pies.i have never been scolded som much as i was during my visit with roberto and hid dynamo of a daughter georgia!!

Larry,

Thanks for telling me that after spending a couple of days at Don Antonio's that you were told that the style of Neapolitan pizza you make is American style.  That sounds weird to me.  What is wrong with the way you stretch your doughs?  I watched Roberto stretch doughs on two different occasions and the only thing I saw was that the dough balls were highly fermented and he was careful in stretching them.  I can understand the baking method might be different.  Georgia sure must be a dynamo.

Norma, it really depends on if a person is Italian or not.  If you are then , it doesn't matter what the pizza looks like, it's just automatically better.   ::)

Chau,

Do you think we ever will make the cut since we are not Italian's?   :-D

Lol Norma.  I've gotten pretty good at comparing the look of a crust and its associated textures.  Let's just say I would be suprise to find out that commercial pizzaiolos are as passionate about pizza and spend as much time perfecting pizza as some of our members here.  And as Larry has said in the past, the only thing the Italian establishments over us is the cheese.  I am positive I will agree with that once I've gotten a chance to visit Naples.

Chau,

I think I would be surprised also to find out that commercial pizza pizzaiolos are as passionate and spend as much perfecting pizza as some of the members here do.  Do let us know about the pizzas if you can ever visit Naples.
These are a few more photos.

Certainly not an NP afficianado, but I think many of these pies look like pies I've seen here.
That's what I thought....

Craig,

I think that is my fault.   :-[  When I first started posting photos from ones I downloaded I got mixed up on which ones I posted.  I started deleting photos as soon as I hit the choose file button in my last few replies.  I can delete the last ones that I tried to post, but will have to hunt for the ones that I deleted if you are anyone else wants to see them. 

Just let me know if you want to see more.  Sorry after that, but I didn't realize when I was deleting those photos they then wouldn't upload.  I can only delete the photos that were posted from the last day.

Look at a stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before.

I did not bake this pie. But should it represent Neapolitan Pizza?
