“Uh, I didn’t get any.”
Exactly. You gotta get some.
I sort of put my foot down about getting some pizza. And I maybe suggested it the entire time I was there.
But I can’t remember the minor details.
We ended up getting pizza for lunch on Sunday and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We were fresh out of our conference, hungry, and looking for some action. We found it all.
Lombardi’s boasts itself as the first pizzeria in America. Is this true? I have no idea, but that is quite the claim!
Six of us were eating pizza that day and we decided to split two pies between us.
Both pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired brick oven, which lucky for me, is my favorite cooking method. I was happy to finally see some triangle slices because no matter how long I live here, I cannot get used to Ohio’s crazy pizza style.
The crust seemed like it was hand tossed. It was super chewy which I liked a great deal. And it was the perfect thickness. Not too thin and not too heavy.
Of the two, my favorite was the white pizza. It had better flavor and had a little bit more umph than the margarita style. I didn’t quite care for the sauce on the margarita pizza, it was a little too sweet and not garlicky enough for this Polish girl. That said, both pizzas were a great introduction to NY style pies. And if you like sweeter tomato sauce, then this is the pizza for you!
It just happened to be San Gennaro the weekend we were in town. Lots of people out and about checking out all the booths and Little Italy. It was interesting to see and the smells were fantastic.
What’s your favorite place to get NY style pizza? If you don’t live in NY, have you been able to find comparable pizza where you live?
