Californian in search of best Californian Pizza in NYC!

I am not interested in NY style.

Just a good Californian style pizza!

  1. What does that mean to you? California doesn't have a single style of pizza, so it would help if you could describe what your ideal is. Do you mean unorthodox pizzas in the style of Spagos or the California Pizza Kitchen chains?

    1. Assuming that your definition of a good California-style pizza is similar to mine (thin crust with a puffy, blistered edge, highly developed gluten, unconventional toppings, seasonal if possible, with the standard-bearers being Pizzaiolo in Oakland and Pizzeria Mozza in LA), my vote goes to Motorino's brussel sprout and pancetta pizza.

      1. I’m not totally sure what “California style” means either, but maybe ZPizza? ...
