Welcome back, New York City Pizza!

I was in Ohio for 5 nights over Christmas,  but now I’m back in Brooklyn NYC. This afternoon it hit me… I haven’t had pizza in OVER A WEEK!!

RED ALERT!!!

Luckily where I live in Brooklyn, I can walk to a main commercial streets with  lots of pizza options,  so I went to my favorite place and got a slice and a Grandma slice. So so good.

In fact, I took a creative writing class at the New School years ago and I interviewed that pizza place’s management for an assignment.  If memory serves correctly, they owned the pizza place that John Travolta visited in the movie Saturday Night Fever.

Note: Grandma slices are thin crust square slices. The thick square slices are Sicilian.

Note: a pet peeve of mine: when pizza with nothing extra on it is referred to as a “cheese slice.” To me it’s a “slice,” “regular” or “plain” slice.” I know many say “cheese slice” so i know I’m not winning that one.

  1. I call it a plain slice. And a cheese pie. Brooklyn talk from being born in Greenpoint in 1957. Never heard it called a grandma slice, Rex. We called the square version a Sicilian slice. Anyway, a want a triangle plain slice to fold in half to let the olive oil orange drip up my arm as I eat it. Now, please.

      1. So, are those pizza slices exactly the same but cut differently?
        I know in the US you have different kind of crusts, but the sauce and cheese, are the same?

        I love square pizza, specially the middle pieces without the ?? border? I make square pizza only when I have to make many and the round forms are not enough 🙂

      1. Baltimore is a little far from me, I live closer to the border of Pennsylvania. Every time I visit Staten Island I head over to my favorite spot for some pizza. If you’re ever in Staten Island go to Denino’s. Are you close to Spumoni Gardens? I love that place.
