Keste Pizza on Bleecker

Excellent new spot on Bleecker Street near Cornelia. It's across the street from John's Pizza, but thousands of miles away in pizza terms.

Supposedly authentic Neapolitan pizza, wood burning oven, pizzaiola from Italy. All i know is the dough reminded me of Da Michele in Naples (fairly soft with a nice little char), but the sauce at Keste was much tastier and the cheese was excellent. This was not gloppy New York "cheese", this was just the right amount of really good mozzarella.

We only tried the Margherita, but there was a lot of "interesting" stuff coming out as well...Lardo pizza, Pizza with prosciutto on top, etc. So despite the Neapolitan credentials, oven and dough, the range of toppings is more New York than Naples. And a far cry from Da Michele's two choices (Margherita or marinara).
