New York Pizza - Charlotte

No, I'm not starting another pizza fight here on the board. This one is about a new pizza place that just opened at South Blvd and Archdale (in same plaza as Japiur and Pho 98) - New York Pizza.

My wife and I were real excited when we saw the sign go up, as we live in Starmount and this is walking distance to us. We stopped in on Monday for a slice each with really high hopes - you call it NY Pizza and that is what I expect. Gotta say - it was pretty darn good.

The pizza is handmade, with big floppy slices, just the right amount of sauce and cheese. The crust has that familiar chew - you pull it off with that snap-like consistency, and then it is charred and chewy and delicious.

We went back on Friday for a full pie - 16" with big slices, very good. Our 16" cheese was $12 and we only ate half of it... great value I think.

They also do dinners (baked ziti, manicotti, stuffed shells, chicken/eggplant parm) as well as sandwiches, salads, and desserts. Cannoli's and cheesecake looked great.

Frankly, we only have had the pizza but we will be back for more.

It is a family run place that looks like a pizza place - counter up front, booths/tables, paper towels, cheese/red pepper/oregano shakers on the tables.

I'm not going to get into a ranking thing, as we all have ideas of what makes a pizza good and which we like best - but as a NY transplant I think this pizza is really, really good.
