The 27 Pizza Spots That Define New York Slice Culture

Wow! The last time was only 6 slices. Now the folks at Serious Eats have a 27 spot list for the definitive NYC slice of pie! I have to say that most of those slices look absolutely great. I wasn't impressed with the one from L'Industrie, though. Looks like they suffer from a cheese shortage. The rest looked mighty fine, though!

Let there be no doubt, NYC is the Pizza Capital of the Universe.
 
I loved this article because the author hit on one key point straightaway - the traditional, 'foldable'"N.Y. Slice" is properly prepared only in deck ovens.  And I  those square-cut ("Grandma", "Sicilian", ""Sheet") slices as well.  In fact, they are my personal favorite thing to come out of a deck oven.
 
In addition, NYC with many ancient coal and wood-fired Italian ovens also has better Neapolitan-style pizza than Naples.
 
And the key differentiation that makes NYC pizza stand above ALL others is the CRUST.  And the primary base ingredient of the crust is WATER - and all agree that the Dom Perignon of all tap waters is NYC tap - not only for taste but for pizza, bagels, and bread.
 
Our local Grimaldi's (Allen, TX) has a system similar to this:
 

 
And you really can taste the difference in the crust.

NYC Pizza is the definitive pizza in the USA. Notice please: No pineapple! No kale! No bacon! No fresh tomatoes! No nuthin but fantastic crust, tomato sauce, fresh motz, and maybe,
pepperoni and or, Italian sausage and for the not so timid, anchovies.
 
Thanks, Jim.

Please don't think less of me, but on occasion I do like 'Hawaiian' pizza.  Once, I asked for such at The Egyptian.  You should have seen the look on the waitress' face!

Italians in Italy put anything and everything on their pizza. I've had great NYC pizza with all kinds of toppings. There is NO "definitive" NYC pizza. What you love is NYC pizza. In Italy, I've had pizza with Shredded potatoes. I've had a pizza in Florence with a poached egg right in the center. If pineapple is your thing, go for it!!!
