New York Pizza by the slice.
'G' explains why this is her favorite Denver Restaurant for NY
true New York style pizza slice has a thin crust, much thinner than the
ordinary pizzas we see today. In addition Italian New York style pizza is
cooked well done so that the cheese turns to a golden brown color
rather than retaining its original white color. Anything less than
this is not a true New York pizza and should not be confused with
the other American pizza styles. Pizza restaurants in Denver, just
like New York, will serve a slice or a whole pie.

In Denver, most pizzerias serve some
type of variation of the New York style pizza. In many cases pizzeria
restaurants make a pizza that is neither as thin, nor cooked as
well done, but it resembles a New York style pizza.
The first New
York pizzas were simple and topped off with tomato sauce, cheese and
basil leafs. Over time, new and unique toppings have been added.
Still, one of the best pizzas around is the traditional New York
style pizza, which in Denver, is commonly sold by the slice. Next time you are
in the mood for pizza order a true New York style pizza and eat it
like they do in New York, which is folded over long ways while it is
still hot. In Denver, many preferred toppings include pepperoni,
sausage, black olive, mushrooms and green peppers. For the record,
the favorite for my 4 year old daughter and me is cheese.
NY vs. Jersey Style Pizza
I was fortunate enough to have my first 'real' NY Style Pizza slice
in Brooklyn, New York in the summer of 2001. My business partner Jeff (He
is a native New Yorker) and I were in New York for some high-level
meetings. We stayed with one of Jeff's old college roommates in
Brooklyn and they both recommended the same restaurant when
questioned about the best "New York Style Pizza." I am sorry the
name escapes me, but I think it was Fat Tony's. Gluten free "Jersey Style" pizza
is "just like New York pizza, only better sauce." Fans of Jersey
style pizza seem to have quite a big "chip" on their shoulders.
During summers of my college years I apprenticed as a long-haul
truck driver and had been 'schooled' by the country's most informed
and faithful 'eaters.' Small diners and 'greasy spoons' were very
familiar to me so, an out of the way place in Brooklyn, New York
like Fat Tony's, was no surprise. The cook was just as you would
imagine for a small Italian "two man" restaurant. Both had on, what at one
time, must have been white t-shirts. White paper hats added to the
almost cartoon atmosphere. Jeff and I sat down at the other table.
There were only two. I really figured Jeff was just putting me on
and later we would go to the 'Best' Pizza restaurant in New York. I
did not know I now was there.
For people who already know what 'real' New York style pizza is, no
explanation is necessary, but for others who may have only sampled
'fast food delivery' or 'bowling alley' style pizza, the taste
cannot be compared. Something happens to the flavor of cheese when
it is 'browned' and fully cooked into a pizza instead of just
allowed to melt on top.
