I got a wave and a smile from a slice of New York pizza, Tuesday.
New York is known for our thin crust pizza - the many Ray's Pizza locations, John's Pizza in the Times Square area, Lombardi's in Soho, Grimaldi's in DUMBO. And we have a few places that offer pies with ridiculously fancy toppings and Sicilian pies, too.
I had my first 'Grandma's Pizza' in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, at Casanova, on McGuiness Boulevard.
What is Grandma's pizza, you ask? It's a square pie that's covered in plum tomato sauce mozzarella, garlic and olive oil. The crust is thicker than 'thin crust' pizza, but not so doughy as a Sicilian pie. Trust me, it is deelish. (My mouth is watering, just thinking about it).
Here's a video of a guy named Chef Bruno, demonstrating how to make a Grandma's pizza. He is not known for speed, nor spelling! No criticisms, please, or he breaka your legs.
