My Favorite Pizza: New Park
Not Neopolitan style or brick oven style, but for New York style pizza, my absolutely favorite is New Park Pizza.
The only issue is that it is all the way in Howard Beach. Even when I lived in Queens, I only went by car because it was a pain in the ass to get too. I haven’t been there in years and years, but on the way back from the James Beard Foundation dinner at Foxwoods Casino Resort, Patrick surprised me with the great idea of heading to New Park on the way home since we had a car for the day.
It was just as good as I have always remembered it. There is something about it that feels so light that you could eat slice after slice after slice after slice. Ugh, it’s like crack. I love the cheese, I love the sauce, I love the dough and I love the crust. I don’t know if it will be your favorite New York style pie, but it definitely is mine.
Anyone have a car I can borrow for a few hours?
