There is no way I can make it to every place I want to try. I am sure enjoying the effort however. That being said, I think it would be interesting to discuss places on my radar from time to time and maybe you could help me out by getting there before I. Remember, I am looking only for the best so if the taste is not something special I have to know. Sending my followers to taste something good but not spectacular is not what I am about.
In the foodie world Pizza is kind of overdone. New style Pizza places are popping up quicker than organic offerings at Whole Foods. This is New York however and Pizza must be given it's proper respect. Therefore, I have listed a few places I want to taste. If you're in the neighborhood drop by and let me know whether to make the effort.
1. Sullivan Street Bakery - 533 West 47th Street.
I'm told the mushroom slice here is not to be believed. It has Cremini mushrooms, onions, thyme, olive oil, and sea salt; thin, crisp crust. Not too bad, huh?
Grand Daisy is known for everything. The one thing I want to try is Pizza con schiacciata d'uva and also the Cauliflower Pizza. Schiacciata (pronounced ski-ah-CHA-ta) con L'Uva is an Etruscan grape bread or pie and is made to celebrate the grape harvest in Tuscany in the fall. Pizza Cavolfiore is the other one. It's Cauliflowers and Gryuere cheese on top a thin-crispy pizza.
3. Artichoke Basille, 328 East 14th Street
How does a great Sicilian slice sound? Or a signature artichoke slice? Or the crab slice? I'm told all are somewhere between excellent and fantastic.
Motorino is all over the internet for having a terrific product. It is my fault I have not gotten there yet. I have a list of two pies to try. First is the basil and oil or Stracciatella. The second is the Sicilian, once again.
The last pie I have on my radar is Luzzo's. The pie to get here is the napoletano. My plan is to try em all but hard to do in one day.
Below is a picture from one of the places. When you get to them guess which one this picture is from.
