Gloria's Pizza

  • g

Does anyone remember Gloria's on Main St. in Flushing? Where can I get great thin crust pizza with a sweet sauce like Gloria's?

  1. I am not familiar with Gloria's but it sound good. Try New Park Pizzza on Cross Bay Blvd in Howard Beach.

      I still dream of Gloria's Pizza. My childhood was spent in there waiting for the Q 25/34 bus. Still the best I've ever had. So glad the family re-opened in Whitestone. I live in Rockland County, but I'm heading down with my kids.

        There is never a time that goes by that when my family has pizza that I don't think of Gloria's Pizza in Flushing NY. My grandmother lived in the BLAND houseing projects and it was a short walk. When we would visit her from Rochester NY a slice was the first thing I always wanted. Best pizza I have ever had. Would LOVE to have a slice once more

    2. the original owners of Glorias are now in
      New Hyde Park, the name of the new place
      is La Verra. Its on Hillside Ave in a
      small row of strip stores just before
      Marcus Ave. Their pies are still good & they
      even make one with low calorie cheese!

        The Gloria's guys now have Amore Pizza in Flushing, Linden Place and the Whitestone Expressway in the Pathmark shopping center. One bite of their sauce took me back decades.

        2. The family that owned Gloria's operates Amore Pizza in the Pathmark Shopping Center which is just off the Whitestone Expressway off of Farrington. Their other food is OK as well. In the words of Homer Simpson, "MMMMmmmm Gloria's."

          1. There will never be another Gloria. I dream about that place. I used to take the 25/34 bus right outside the place. Couldn't wait without a slice or pie in my hands. It was crowded until it closed at 1:30-2:00 in the morning.
            While it's still the best there is a place that is close to it. Called Carlo's in Port Washington on Main Street.
            I travel 30-45 mins to get there but it's worth it.
            If you're in the area or can get to it give it a try. It's the closet you'll get.
