PIZ'ZA FOR LIFE

2013 NYC PIZZA RUN CHAMPION!

For the third straight year, I took the ultimate crown in the running meets pizza world, I wont the NYC Pizza Run. Pizza by Certé served up some awesome slices! Check out the full race report here!

 

NEAPOLITAN PIZZA TRUCK

The Neapolitan Express pizza truck is serving up Neapolitan-style pizza all around NYC. Using the very best of ingredients and it's an amazing tasty treat at an unbeatable price point.

 

LUZZO'S OVEN TANGO

Luzzo's in Manhattan, serves up a coal oven Neapolitan pizza that is sure to make your knees knock. An oven that burns both coal and wood, making this pie, a near perfect oven tango.

 

DON'T FUGGEDABOUTIT

A slice you won't fuggedaboutit, Gio has been serving up pies since 1973 and he is damn proud of it. This is a pizzeria you will only hear about if somebody cares enough to share it with you. Hands down, the best square slice I've found in NYC.

NEW YORK STYLE

One of NYC's newest pizzerias, Fiore's on Bleeker, offers all any pizza lover might need, a high quality slice, with some of the best imported ingredients all baked up by a stand up guy.

CHICAGO DEEP DISH

Chicago's Lou Malnati's serves up a hearty "Last Supper" slice that won my heart during the 2013 Birthday 'Za Crawl. The perfect balance of sauce to cheese to crust... the only thing missing was a candle to make a wish.

TASTING THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE INDIGESTIBLE OF PIZ'ZA

Miriam Weiskind born into this world while her family consumed piz'za, it was no wonder she grew up to be an avid piz'za lover, connoisseur, critic and tour guide for Scott's Pizza Tours. For her, it's about the basics: 1. crust 2. cheese 3. sauce... the other details are judged upon after the fact. Most famously, she is the two time reigning female champion of the NYC Pizza Run.

    PAYING HOMAGE

    While I live in NYC, the piz’za capitol of the world, I still must pay homage to my favorite spots from back home. Topping my list: Adriatico’s Pizza in Cincinnati. A spicy sicilian square that packs a punch. Marion’s Pizza in Dayton, Ohio. A round piz’za cut into squares, a sweet and tangy sauce and burned cheese markings coat the top.

  • DRINK UP

    MY 'ZA BREW

    After many years of research and piz’za consumption, I only like to pair root beer with my piz’za. I recommend the following three root beers: 1. Barq’s 2. Stewart’s 3. Olde Brooklyn.

    Root beers to avoid include: A&W, IBC, Dad’s, Virgil’s and Boylan. These are all overly sweet and lack a nice signature root beer punch.

  • 'ZA TOURS

    I GIVE TOURS

    Once a week, the best day of my week, I proudly give piz’za tours for Scott’s Pizza Tours www.scottspizzatours.com. I met Scott less than a year ago and when he asked me what I knew about piz’za, I said “a bit.” A bit later turned into “a whole lot more” than I bargained for. Scott is my mentor when it comes to the crust, sauce and cheese combo. Check out our tours and come get cheesey with us!

About the 'za Blog // This is where all of the magic happens. Where I write about tasting the good, the bad & the indigestible of pizza. While I'm on a 10 slices a week diet, I strive to discover not just the latest and greatest slices of pizza in the five boroughs of NYC, but to also stay in tune with all of the latest and greatest news, books and other jazz about pizza which is worth giving a hoot and a hollar about. Feel free to suggest some new slices for me to try that I may not have conquered yet.
