Where is the BEST Grandma Pie?

I found this Grandma Pie, but have yet to partake of it. It was the most appetizing Grandma Pie seen behind the ubiquitous glass of the oh so ubiquitous pizza salons that dot the landscapes of our so called diverse melting pot.

I am wondering if anyone is as endeared to the Grandma Pie, as I.

If so, would it be possible for you to inform as to what you consider the best. Thank you.

    1. Love the grandma pie at Luigi's on 35th Avenue right off the Clearview in Bayside. Excellent sauce, perfect amount of cheese and perfect thickness of the crust.

        this requires a visit..thank you.

      2. Three Queens nominations for some excellent Grandma slices: Louie's on Baxter in Elmhurst; Peppino's on 61st St in Woodside; and Rosa's on 69th St in Maspeth.

          Thank you for this list.

          I intend to 'check them out'.

        2. Nino's in Bay Ridge. Their sauce is great.

            The photo is from Newkirk Plaza.

            I had eaten prior to passing by the venue, and was curious. I will find out how good it is. Appearance of pizza is always a very likely starting point. That is unlike ...say...curry.

              Yessir, that's a LoDuca's grandma pie and is recognized by pizza aficianados as one of the finest renditions.

              Pepino's in Woodside even better if made the same as it was 8 years ago.

                Yes, you are correct. That is where the photo was taken.

          2. Yes, I yesterday confirmed the positive statements about the Grandma Pie at Lo Duca Pizza, 14 Newkirk Plaza, Brooklyn. Devoured as spoken Italian from behind the counter.

            This is one of the more delicious pies in the universe, or cosmos for that matter.

            It was euphoric to say the least, for my mouth anyway.

            A few angles takes one to the full visual dimensions of this very nice slice.
