So I tried the famous pizza from Lombardi's tonight and I have to say, it wasn't all that I expected it to be. I was pretty impressed with the tomato sauce but I'm quite disappointed overall. Crust was too chewy and soggy, and it just did not taste fresh at all.
I currently live in the east village and am wondering if there are any great pizza joints around here. My ideal slice is the perfect amount of fresh mozzarella, tasty tomato sauce (like the kind at Lombardi's), and crispiness. Crust can't be too thick either. Brick oven is ok but usually with brick oven, the crust tends to be too crispy and hard.
The one and only place that comes near to my ideal slice of pizza is Little Italy pizza place located on 33rd and 5th. Oh my goodness, the pizza here is AMAZING...especially the crust which has the perfect amount of crispiness. Love their sauce and cheese too. However, it's in midtown and I'm looking for a place closer to where I live to fill my frequent pizza cravings!
