In my ongoing quest to try all the pizzas, we ordered delivery from Bella Vita Pizzeria on 58th Street last week. It was recommended to me by my Aunt Laurie, who had tasted it at a recent party. It is what one might consider traditionally classic New York pizza.
And it didn’t disappoint!
We ordered a standard large cheese pizza as that really is the best way to compare apples to apples across all the pizza places.
When it came, the light color on the cheese and crust had me worried that perhaps it was slightly undercooked. But indeed it was not.
It definitely hit the spot in terms of what I look for in that comforting thin crust za of growing up: HUGE slices (I still ate 4 – oops), chewy crust that is easily foldable (and doesn’t crack per my dad’s instruction), lots of cheese and sauce, and pre-spiced with oregano – although that doesn’t preclude adding my own “toppings” of oregano, garlic and crushed red pepper.
Thanks for the rec A.L., and look forward to ordering from here again 🙂
