By the Slice: The Haute 5 Pizzerias in NYC

New York City has often been called the cultural capital of the world. Home to people of just about every ethnic background, the sum of the city’s unique culinary parts yields an immaculate infusion of unmatched decadence that can only be found in The Big Apple. And though New York is masterfully diverse in its culinary selection, the type of food New York City may be most famous for is pizza. Like it or not Chicago, New York pizzerias produce some of the world’s best, and most creative pizzas, ever to grace the tongues of man.


If you’re in the mood for huge slices of foldable New York style pizza, look no further than Lucali pizzeria located in Carroll Gardens in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. Owner/operator Mark Iacono has dedicated himself to creating the thin-crust, brick-oven pizza that has made New York famous. With a wide variety of fresh toppings offered daily, Lucali delivers unmatched quality in every bite. The chalkboard menu is restricted to include only pizzas and calzones, and this cash-only, BYOB spot has been a local favorite for years. With prices suited to fit even the most modest budget, succulent slices of culinary mastery are affordable for anyone who has an appetite for excellent pizza.
