I trust you Ziggy! Especially as pizza is Neopolitan not Italian and has a longer history in NYC than in most parts of Italy, especially the north. Pizzas came with the Neopolitan immigrants to places like NYC and New Haven, where modified styles of pizza were developed. Staten Island style being one great example.
