NY Style Pizza-DFW?

Ok, so we moved here three weeks ago from Atlanta, and we are having a heack of a time finding really good pizza. We are looking for a REAL new York pizza complete with the Grande cheese. We live in the "mid-cities" area, but will drive for good pizza.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Chickstein, have you tried the NYPD (New York Pizza & Deli) on Industrial Blvd in Euless?

    Here's their website: http://www.nypddeli.com/index.html
    Their menu is there. I haven't had their pizza yet, but it looked good when I was in there. I had a sub, which was very good and the counterperson was extremely friendly.

    Other than that, I've resorted to making my own, because I've struggled to find real NorthEast pizza here. Not that the pizza here is all bad...it's just different than what I'm used to.

    1. There's always Sals. It's a good standby NY pizza. Large slices that you fold in your hand. Have to eat it there though as it doesn't make the drive home very well. Plus depending on pizza/dough maker in the back the consistency of the dough seems to vary at times from excellent to just ok. The original is on Wycliff Ave in Dallas.

        Sal's is NOT good. I'm always surprised when people recommend this place for NY Style pizza. I wonder how many of these people have actually ever had pizza in NY?

          Yes, I am always intrigued by people who recommend Sal's, and there seem to be a lot of them.
          I just had pizza in New York over Christmas, and it was an awesome experience- Rosario's and Grimaldi's....still thinking about those slices.

          Back to Sal's- I work at a place where they used to order pizza from Sal's every month for a group of 40-50 people. The general consensus was that Sal's is BAD PIZZA. Often burnt, with horrible toppings. So bad, that last month, we started ordering from Domino's, and everyone was so relieved to have not bad pizza. Is there some secret handshake to get good pizza at Sal's?

            In Sal's defense, they used to serve a decent pie but that was a long time ago.

      2. I don't know if you would consider this real NY pizza but Nizza Pizza has some pretty good and cheap pizza. There are several locations in Arlington. The owners are from NYC.

        1. I'll put my vote in for Joe's Pizza in Plano, at Parker and the Tollway. You must order the "Giant" size to get the best cheese/sauce ratio.

          1. I'd recommend Pastazio's in either Addison or in Uptown. In my opinion, their pizza is the next best thing to being in NYC.
