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!

        Masa is Chicago-style thick crust though.

        1. 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.
