NY Style Pizza in Silverlake Area?

Any recs for decent NY style pizza in the Silverlake/Echo Park area? I understand Nicky D's is supposed to be pretty good, but they don't open during lunch hours. Thanks in advance!

  1. Hard Times on Hyperion and Griffith Park.

        Masa is Chicago-style thick crust though.

      2. Nicky D's started opening for lunch about 3 months ago.

        1. I was pleasantly surprised by the New York-ness of the by-the-slice cheese slice I had at the relatively new place in the mini-mall on Fletcher, north of the Ralphs and Astro, but south of Riverside Drive, the exact name of which now eludes me ("Rudelli's" maybe?)

          Anyone else have a thought, or a whole-pie impression?

            I believe it is indeed Rudelli's. I tried them once but don't remember being inspired to return. Anyone try Crispy Crust in Atwater yet? It sounds like some kind of chain operation but is actually a branch of an Armenian (or maybe Persian?) doughnut bakery, of all things.

              The first Crispy Crust I know of was the one on Sunset and Shraeder. It was part of a little deli that was owned by a young Armenian man. I don't know if that was the original, but it was the original for me.

              The Crispy Crust on Fountain and Vine is now our "go-to" delivery pizza. They're consistent, and the delivery is not a huge drama.

              The pizza is way better than any of the other delivery pizzas in the area, and the wings are also pretty good.

          2. Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Silver Lake and very worth the extra few minutes of drive time is Village Pizzeria in Larchmont Village. Owner's a NY transplant and the pizza is divine.

            1. Pizza Buona is the only good NY style pizza in that area, IMO. There is an Ok place in Atwater too, a few blocks east of The Roost, and

              You could also try Il Capriccio

              I think calling it decent NY style might be a stretch, but definitely better than most of the stuff suggested in this thread.

              If you are willing to travel, look at the bazillion "where can I find good NY style pizza in LA" threads and wade through the various suggestions.
