With so many available options, what would be the best pizzas in New York City? Well, I'm no food critic, but I love pizza. I gave it some thought, and I decided to stick to the most legendary pizza places, so I could offer you some tips about it, then, when you are in New York City, you could dig it. Of course, personal taste matters but I've done a little research, and have found this story by Munchies that's worth watching.
Before we dive into this pizza stuff, here's a fascinating piece of history. New York’s pizza odyssey begins with Neapolitan immigrant Gennaro Lombardi, who sold the first pizza (or at least received the city’s first-ever pizzeria license) in Little Italy in 1905 (his original store opened in 1897, down the street from the current location) – he also helped train a whole generation of pizzaioli at his brick-walled coal oven.
Enough with talking and let's go get some pizza. Watch this video, make your personal pizza tour, and dig deep into all those pizza restaurants. Buon Appetito!
