  • 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.

    Pizza Town Stretch – her talent and experience is obvious. Incredibly thin sauce. (I know this is New Jersey ;) )


    Gaby’s Pizza Queens – It takes some muscle to open this dough.

    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.)

  • Would love to toss pizza like this, but the explanation is a little bit fast in the video  ??? ;D

    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.  :-[

    Whats the name of your pizzeria?

  • Is that fresh oregano in the Bleecker Street vid?

  • 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.
