1 Numero 28

For thin crust brick oven pizza that makes you sigh with contentment on every bite, it’s 28 Naples. Served in rectangular sheets, order a 14'' for solo dining and the 29'' to share. Fresh ingredient choices abound, such as hot soppressata, mushrooms, and basil.  Insiders know to order the Mozzarella di Bufala, which is flown in every few days.

2 Joe’s Pizza

Stick to the basics at Joe’s. Choose from a thick Sicilian square or a triangle of cheese or pepperoni. If you have the time wait for a fresh pizza to come out of the oven, which happens about every 20 minutes or even quicker at lunch rush hour. Pics of Joe with everyone from the Olson Twins, Adam Sandler, Kirstin Dunst and more line the walls of this hole in the wall joint that runs to the beat of authentic New York pizza time.

3 Artichoke Basilles Pizza

The original 14th street stand, which is no stranger to lines wrapped around the block, outgrew itself and Artichoke opened a second location in the meatpacking district earlier this fall. Visit the 14th street location for pizza to-go or if you can't wait have a slice standing in the middle of the street with cheese oozing out the sides of your mouth and onto the pavement. For sit-down dining with a fresh tap poured beer or a late night bite after club hopping visit the new meatpacking location. Either way you will be happy you did.

4 Lombardi’s Pizza

Established in 1905, Lombardi’s is the first established pizzeria in the country. It has been a favorite for generations. Some say the secret is in the sauce and others the mozzarella. Pizza is only served by the pie so bring guests or have a liking to morning-after leftovers.

New York, NY 10012


5 Gnocco

Enjoy authentic wood oven pizza with a layers of vibrant flavors at the East Village hotspot Gnocco. The atmophere is a warm and cozy rustic setting with modern touches. Fresh toppings include spicy hot salame, shaved parmesean, truffle sauce, pancetta, eggplant and arugula.
