It’s National Pizza Day!

So we all know that there’s no better place to be than here in New York City. Whether traditional New York-style, Sicilian or Neapolitan, we’ve got the best slices right here. Hands down. Check out a few of our favorites:

Kesté means this is it in Neapolitan dialect. Over 70 different pies are baked in their wood-burning ovens in Greenwich Village, in addition to fried pizza and several gluten-free offerings for our long-suffering celiac friends. Their Pizza Margherita is the most-craved by New Yorkers. (An extensive wine list is a bonus!)

John’s of Bleecker Street has been dishing out coal-fired pies since 1929. Settle into one of their original wooden booths decorated with decades-old scratched in professions of love and order a regular pizza with fresh garlic. You’ll thank us later.

East Harlem is home to Patsy’s Pizzeria, another old-school pie purveyor (since 1933).  Patsy’s perhaps doles out the most wallet-friendly slice: A huge pie costs only $12, although toppings are additional. That’s unheard of these days!

Prince Street Pizza in Soho is the go-to place for square slices, i.e. Sicilian and grandma slices. The place is tiny and nothing to look at, but the Spicy Square Pepper Slice (fresh mozzarella, fra diavolo, and small crispy pepperonis) is to die for.

But our favorite traditional New York-style pizza joint of all is Joe’s Pizza on Carmine Street right here in the Village. For forty years they’ve been churning out thin-crust, gooey, oil-dripping-can-I-please-have-another-napkin slices for grateful locals and tourists alike. There. Is. No. Better. Slice.

Trust us.

Now, these are only a few of the many outstanding pizzerias in our wonderful city. Do you have a favorite that isn’t on this list? Let us know!
