The Best Pizza in NYC from a LOCAL That You Must Try from Mark Spector's blog

New York City discussion is incomplete without discussing New York Helicopter Toursand pizza! Today we are discussing the latter. One would eat New York City pizza every day if one could. Therefore it only makes sense that we share with you the finest places to buy pizza in NYC as it is my favourite food.

As opinions often vary, we even collated the viewpoints of the whole New York-born and -raised family for their rankings of the top pizzerias.

Without further ado, here are the top pizza restaurants in New York City, listed in no particular order.

  1. Patsy's Pizza

Pasquale Lancieri, a top brick-oven pizzeria in NYC, launched his first pizzeria in Harlem in 1933. The Upper West Side and Turtle Bay outlets of the family-owned pizzeria, which is frequently credited with creating the New York slice, are currently run by the fourth generation of the family.

  1. Song’E Napule

Song' E Napule is the place to go if you're seeking the Italian pizza most similar to Neapolitan in NYC. It was named "Pizzeria of the Year" by prominent Italian food, beverage, and tourism firm Gambero Rosso International. We enjoy the Calzone Classico even though their traditional Margherita pizza is to die for. Yet it's not the Americanized calzone with the mushy dough and excessive amounts of cheese. Instead, mozzarella (fiordilatte di agerola), spicy salami, ricotta, tomato sauce, and basil are placed within the folded-over dough.

  1. Joe’s Pizza

Since the 1970s, Joe's Pizza has been a mainstay of Greenwich Village. The pizza parlour is still managed by its original proprietor, Joe Pozzuoli of Naples, Italy. The "most genuine slice" in NYC, according to many media sources. It is as popular as New York Helicopter Tours. Do you need any more reasons?.

  1. Prince Street Pizza

Prince Street's renowned "SoHo Square" slice, which has small, thick slices of pepperoni, went viral, but it also deserves the hype. This pizza has the ideal balance of doughy, crispy, sweet, and spicy (it has a kick!) ingredients. But be prepared to wait in a very lengthy queue, particularly on weekends or during lunch.

  1. John Of Bleecker

John Sasso, an Italian immigrant, opened John's of Bleecker in 1929, making it one of the city's (and the nation's!) earliest pizzerias. It changed sites in 1954, and had ownership changes, but is currently operated by a family. The way of cooking it in a coal-fired brick oven is what makes it so well-known, but you must get a whole pie (no portions). It is also a sit-down establishment rather than the typical New York pizza shop where you may consume a slice while standing outdoors.

You can spend some time in the famous Empires State building with your partner. It gives an amazing and unforgettable view of the whole city. You can check the Empire State Building Tickets Pricefrom here.
