Title: A Collection of NY Slice Pizza Videos
Post by: hammettjr on September 16, 2018, 09:06:30 AM
Like many forum members I've watched (at least) hundreds of videos on NY pizza. While I like to refer back to and repeatedly watch my favorites, I'm very bad at using bookmarks to keep track of them. I decided to spend a few minutes thinking about it, and created a list of the most memorable ones for me.

Note that this isn't intended to be "the best" of anything or spark any debate. It's simply a list I can refer back to. And if it helps out some forum members, that'd be great too.

I'm sure I missed many good ones. Feel free to post any of your favorites. But please stick to NY slice style. There's plenty of space on the forum for another thread on the other types of pizzas in NY.

He's a horse guy.  I knew he'd be in Saratoga and tried to get in touch with him to try my pizza.  I'll try harder next year.

EDIT:  The reviews he did here were spot- on.

Excellent video on pizza Suprema. One important point to note is a lot of places stretch slice pies to 20" - I'm not sure what Pizza Suprema Stretches to. Joe's and Best are 20".

Also very important - around 47 seconds you can see the excess of dough in the center of the skin before the pizza maker does the toss. I believe this has been termed the "edge stretch" here. In my experience, particularly with larger pies, you really need some extra dough in the center because it thins out quickly at 18" or more. You can see the thickness when the pizza maker tosses it in the air as well.

Look for the bubbles beneath the toppings later in the video, too!  ;D

Just came across a video at Bleecker Street. Closups of the sauce with parm and herbs. Beautiful cheese slice being folded. Instantly one of my favorite videos.

I love the even stretch. I think I'm gonna break down and get a wedge of the good parm-regg the next time I'm at RD...

Edit: Yes, the Bleeker St. video. I didn't notice it was the "best of" thread--feel free to delete me, no hard feelings.   :)

You referring to Bleecker? I love the look of that plain slice at the end. Could be exactly the look I'm going for.

Video of a pie baking in a deck oven. Loads of videos and pics on this Instagram page. Many thanks to rasj for pointing it out.

(Note: this pizzeria starts the bakes on a screen.)

Great video of Dom and his pizzeria Di Fara, unfortunately I don't live in the USA, so I will have to wait to try this pizza...

Man that's a great looking slice! Mozz has that Polly-O browning. Really dig that solid amount of freshly flaked reggiano in the sauce!
It could be challenging to duplicate that fresh-off-the-wheel flavor.  :-[

Is that fresh oregano in the Bleecker Street vid?

I saw fresh basil for sure. I think fresh oregano would be hard to confirm based on that video,  especially given it's not HD.

One of the pizzeria sauces I purchased,  FWIW, did have fresh oregano in it. I'm actually hoping to try it for the first time tomorrow.

Well. They dont specifically say it. But if you watch 17:36 on 0.25x speed, you can see that the Joe’s pizza employee is taking a pizza out of the oven and you can see bags of the red All Trumps flour in the background. Haha i kind of scanned all of the Joe’s portion of the video to get as much info about their formulation as I could. It might not be All Trumps but it looked an awful lot like the same logo to me.

You were right one way or another, as the posted recipe on this thread proved. Good eye.
