Yeah for sure Gets. It's a real name of a city. If you want to give someone directions to your house, you both need to be bilingual. grin The towns and streets are mainly Spanish.

And the pizza place you are trying to find is it D'Alfonso's, something like that?? I hope you figure it out because there certainly isn't anything better than pizza in NY wink

We have Cajun/Italian pizza down here in Louisiana. Nothing like you northern Italians eat though. Seafood pizza with crawfish, crab meat, shrimp. Wildlife pizza with ducks, doves, alligator, you name it.

Here in B,ham pizza places have been popping up like wildflowers for the past five to six years. Most of them aren't that good or different from the other. But there are three of them that stand out to me as our best. Salvatore's is my go to for a quick take home pizza or calzone. He's not a new one he's been around for probably twenty years or so. His is the closest thing you will get here to New York style pizza. He was born and raised in the Bronx on Arthur Ave and his father was a restaurant owner from Naples. Good stuff! The other two are Neapolitan style pizza places. They are Bettola and Vecchia. Both chefs that own these two have all of their ingredients imported from Italy. Even their ovens were shipped over. If anyone is in the Ham try these places out. All the other new ones are like most of the restaurants that open. They cater to the yuppie and hipster douche bags that are taking over seems like every city in America.

Madonne! I got upset years ago when I discovered that some of the pizza places in Dallas were serving BBQ pizza or pineapple pizza. Che palle!

My mother always made pizza in a rectangular pan. As a kid, I don't remember ever buying a round pizza. I do remember eating a v-shaped piece of pizza from time to time. Most of the time though I ate a square piece of pizza.

Those of you from NY, Chicago, or other northern city, were your pizzas square or round?

I prefer a Sicilian pie. But when I was a kid we got the round pie.

I started making pizza with my great-grandma when I was 4 years old. She always put it in the rectangular pans. I was always told if it's square it's called grandma style. Everything else is called a slice.

Before I leave to go to JFK, I always go to New Park Pizza in Howard Beach since it's right near the airport. I bring a whole pie on the plane. Eat a slice, bring the rest home. As soon as I get a kiss hello from my kids they ask if I brought home any pizza lol

This weekend my kid and I had TJ's Woodfire Pizza. Good stuff. Closest to NY pizza you can get out here in So Cal


*Note: New Park isn't the best in NY, just most convenient to bring home for me. Still it's good pizza and better than anything I can get in Calif.

A whole pie on the plane? How do you get it through security?
Don't those TSA people eat it?

Ha ha lol Some of them do look hungry don't they?

I have the pizza wrapped in foil in a box or bag in my bag. Keep one slice aside for me. Then, I put a light sweater on top of it so I can put my Italian cookies and biscotti in too. Bread if I can fit it. If I leave from Newark, then my aunt packs me a breaded chicken cutlet sandwich that I eat on the plane. That's how I travel. I'm not even kidding. grin

I love pizza and I'm not being a smartass, this is an honest question. Is NY pizza really that much better than other pizza? I've never been to NYC and hopefully one day will go and try it. All you ever hear about is NY and Chicago style. Cleveland does'nt have a style pizza I guess. Recently I was in Los Angeles and went to California Pizza kitchen. It was okay, nothing special.

What ever you do just don't eat pizza with a knife and folk if you do you are a barbarian. Here is how you eat it. Never eat it in an expensive suit instead take it home. Wear an under wear shirt the ones with no sleeves so work out so you look good while eating make sure you wear a 3400 dollar movado. If you were shot in the face by a cop as a kid and survived. Don't take your false teeth out to eat.

I am going to put that on my tomb stone if I ever die.

I've never eaten pizza in NY or Chicago, but it may indeed be the best. For one, historically, there's been and are plenty of Italians in those cities. So, there's been plenty of opportunity for those Italians to perfect their signature food.

"Best pizza" depends on who makes it, and the ingredients used, not on geography. The best pizza I ever had was at pizzerias in Virginia Beach VA and San Juan Puerto Rico.

Pittsburgh’s culinary reputation continues to rise. The Steel City locked up the No. 5 spot in the “The Best Cities for Pizza Lovers — 2017 Edition,” according to a new study by SmartAsset.

SmartAsset, a New York City-based finance technology company, assessed Pittsburgh as “the most affordable pizza town in our study.” The ’Burgh boasts more than 270 pizza places with about 16 percent of these ranking above 4.4 stars out of a total of 5 stars on Yelp, a crowd-sourced reviewing platform.

Pittsburgh’s pizza falls a few points behind — ranked from first to fourth — Detroit; Buffalo, NY; New York City and Vancouver, Wash. The ’Burgh beat out Peoria, Ariz., a suburb of Phoenix, for the No. 5 spot.

Here we are protected, free to eat our pizza without Kefauver, the goddamn Justice Department and the F.B.I. ninety miles away, in partnership with a friendly pizzeria. Ninety miles! It's nothing! Just one small step, looking for a man who wants to be President of a pizzeria, and having the cash to make it possible. Turnbull, we're bigger than Pappa John's!



Don Cardi cool

That pizza -- in the box in your room. I'm going in to take a nap -- when I wake, if the pizza's on the table, I'll know I have a dinner partner -- if it's not, I'll know I don't.

There was this kid I grew up with; he was older than me. Sorta looked up to me, you know. We did our first work together, worked our way up 86th street. Things were good, we made the most of it. During Prohibition, we ran mozzarella into Canada... made a fortune, your father, too. As much as anyone, I loved him and trusted him. Later on he had an idea to build a pizza garden out of a stop-over for GI's on the way to Avenue X. That kid's name was SC, and the place that he invented was L&B Spumoni Gardens. This was a great man, a man of vision and guts. And there isn't even a plaque, or a signpost or a statue of him in L&B! Someone put a pepperoni on his pie. No one knows who placed the order. When I heard it, I wasn't angry; I knew SC, I knew he was head-strong, talking loud, loving his plain L&B sicilian pie. So when he showed up with a pepperoni on his pie , I let it go. And I said to myself, this is the business we've chosen; I didn't ask who placed the order, because it had nothing to do with the pizza business!

VITO CORLEONE:

Santino? Whattaya think?

SONNY:

There's a lot of money in that pizza delivery.

VITO CORLEONE:

Tom?

TOM:

Well, I say yes. There's more money potential in delivery than anything else we're looking at. Now if we don't get into it, somebody else will. Maybe one of the Five Franchises, maybe all of them. Now with the money they earn, they can buy more mozzarella and sausage; then they come after us. Now we have the flour, we have the tomatoes; an' they're the best things to have. But home pizza delivery is a thing of the future. An' if we don't get a piece of that action, we risk every pizzeria we have -- I mean not now, but ah ten years from now.

SONNY:

So, what's your answer gonna be, Pop?

I never eat pizza in a good suit. Buy i will take it home or they deliver it. I eat the damn thing in my undershirt. My three year old Grand daughter Sophia loves her pizza. Funny to watch her do it. Took her to dancing school tells the teach don't touch me. She just watches does not dance. She gets home she is dancing for two hours straight. Try again in a week.

Vito: When -- when did I ever refuse a topping? All of you know me here -- when did I ever refuse? -- except one time. And why? Because -- I believe this pineapple business -- is gonna destroy us in the years to come. I mean, it's not like pepperoni or sausage -- even prosciutto -- which is something that most people want nowadays, and is forbidden to them by the pezzonovante of the Church on Fridays. Even the delicatessens that've helped us in the past with salami and other things are gonna refuse to help us when in comes to pineapple. And I believed that -- then -- and I believe that now. 

Fredo (weeping): But the fruit man said there was something in it for me, on my own....

I believe in pizza. Pizza has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the pizza tradition. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to put pineapple or chicken on pizza...


Ntra la porta tua lu sangu è sparsu,
E nun me mporta si ce muoru accisu...
E s'iddu muoru e vaju mparadisu
Si nun ce truovo a ttia, mancu ce trasu.
