New York pizza?

sheepy May 4, 2011 03:17 PM

Is there anywhere in the Twin Cities to get a New York style pizza? Personally I am just fine with Davanni's, but one of the managers where I work is on a quest to find what she calls "real pizza".

    What is the manager's notion of "real pizza"?

    I'd start with this recent thread first:

      Fat Lorenzo's or Cosetta's seem to fit the New York style. If she wants a big slice that you can fold in half to eat. Does that make it "real pizza"?

          Cossetta's and Lorenzo's have waaaayyyy too much dough to be true NY style. Black Sheep is more in the vein of NY pie as far as sauce/topping/cheese/crust ratio goes. Coal fire is usually new haven, ct style but I think all the factors in place, it probably is the best comparison. There is a new slice place on 1st ave in butler square that I have not been to yet. Broders is off-putting because although I love the high end salumi, it is more about the sausage and less about the sum of the parts, which is essential to a quality pie. I have had some luck at hiawatha pizza halal, but it has been a year maybe since I have been there, and no pork products is a deterrent for me.

            But see, all this has been said again and again - very recently. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7826...

          I will second the sentiment on Joey Nova's. By far the closest.

            Trust me. Grand Pizza, the pizzeria inside The Creamery. They deliver pizza and ice cream. So, yeah.

              are you referring to the pizza place within Grand Ole Creamery on Grand in St. Paul? 'cause the link goes to a Stillwater location. . . ?

              Also, THEY DELIVER ICE CREAM?

                The pizza place in St Paul on Grand that is part of Grand Ole creamery.

              Definitely Joey Nova's (if you live that far west) or, Broder's Deli on 50th at Penn.
