The Best Pizzerias in New York City

There are plenty of places to eat in New York City but one of the city's most popular food options is also one of the simplest as well as one of the cheapest.

New York City is known for a lot of things when it comes to food but arguably one of the things it is best known for is great pizza. Not only is New York full of some of the world's best places to pick up a pie or a slice but it is ironically one of the least expensive places as well.

People who know pizza often say that it's the ingredients that make for a great pie. If that's true then the pizza places mentioned in this article must have some of the best ingredients known to man.

We start with Roberta's in Brooklyn. This classic pizzeria is admittedly a bit on the pricey side but serve up some of the best stone-oven pizza anywhere. Cheese lovers will love the Cheeses Christ while those who like a little creativity with their pizza will love the Children of the Corn with its corn, garlic, and pata di cabra toppings.

Speedy Romeo located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn makes their pizzas on a cracker-thin crust. The Saint Louie and Kind Brother pizzas are among their most popular pies.

The strange looking oval-shaped pizza pies at Coals in the Bronx are extremely popular with visitors and locals alike. Coals' pizzas are made on flatbread crusts and favorites like the Dean Martin with its fontinella and pecorino and the Heaven Scent with its fresh garlic and provolone cheese make this Bronx pizzeria one of the best in the City.

This article certainly does not present a full list of the pizzerias that are open for business in New York City and its five boroughs. Places like Motorino in Brooklyn, Patsy's Pizzeria in East Harlem, and Rosario's Pizza on the Lower East Side have also earned a reputation among native New Yorkers as well as tourists for serving up some of the world's best tasting pies. So the next time you're in the Big Apple, stop by any one of these restaurant for a slice or two. You will be glad you did and your taste buds will thank you.
