Best Pizza in Tustin/Irvine

I like a New York Style pizza, thin and crispy, it seems every place I go is doughy. I've lived here my whole life and haven't found anywhere close to as goos as I've had at any place in Manhattan, help.

  1. Ray's pizza in Irvine might be good. The owner used to make pizza in NYC.

      Yeah-I would second that recommendation. The owner's a nice guy

        I tried them a couple of days ago, on the way home. Got a pizza with two different toppings, the meatballs & spaghetti, and the antipasto. It was ok, but not great. I think I'll stick with Ameci's for NY style pizza.

        By the way, last time I was back in NYC (where I grew up), I tried the famous Lombardi's Pizza in Little Italy. I didn't think it was anything special - no better than any random pizza place in the city. However, it was during the Feast of San Genero, so we got lots of great (and greasy) carnival food!

          Cool. I used to work there, so I ate a lot of Ray's pizza, in Irvine. :)

          I like pizza, but it's not a favorite food of mine. I do think Ray's does a good pizza, though, esp. if you get a fresh slice.

          Right across the street from UCI, in the same parking lot as In N Out, but at the other side of the Marketplace. I'll post an address.
