Worst slice of pizza in Manhattan

I nominate Sam's Famous Pizza on the corner of 116th Lex.

It's like eating a slice of papier mache with sugar water and latex on top of it.

Got out of the train there the other day, heard the guys speaking Italian behind the counter, felt like a slice....why not? Got my slice took a bite. Incredulous, I took another bite. I looked the older Italian guy in the face, scowled slightly, and threw the slice in the trash can as he watched. He shrugged his shoulders and I walked out.

Hall of shame.

Please nominate your candidates for worst pizza slice in Manhattan/pizza hall of shame here.

Sam's Famous Pizza

  1. Due Amici or New Amici. Thick bland slices even when made fresh.

    New Amici
    88 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10003

    1. I nominate Abitino's Pizza on 2nd Ave. When eating it I thought it must be some sort of homeopathic version of pizza, where the pizza flavor is intentionally diluted by 100x or so. It was disgustingly bland and awful.

      1. Cafe Amore on 14th Street is foul.

        1. guts, if you are up in that area go to La Corsa on 110 off Lex. Excellent pizza and Italian entrees.

              +1 on Koronet for awfulness.
              And they've been feeding Columbia kids swill for 20 years.

                I will say, I didn't know how horrible it was until I had a Koronet slice sober.

                  My children, normally quite picky and big Motorino fans, have confessed they will occasionally consume Koronet slices at night---I immediately accused them of being in altered states and watched them hang their heads in shame.
