NYC Pizza Review: Sacco

I’m finally reviewing a NEW YORK STYLE PIZZA!!! Yay! It’s about time, right?

A few weeks ago we ordered delivery from Sacco Pizza on 9th Ave in Hell’s Kitchen for our (fairly regular) practice of Thursday night pizza.

Not only is the pizza a true New York thin crust, but it is seriously thin. Like almost paper-thin.

Overall, I would try this pizza again. Likely I would grab a slice on site like Brian Williams often does at lunchtime. It issssss on my way home from yoga soooooo…..

The thin crust cheese pizza we ordered had that classic NYC pizza flavor – the right ratio of sauce to mozzarella, which is to say not an overwhelming amount of either. Is there a pizza perfume? Or pizza air freshener? Because that’s what this pizza is – the quintessential pizza aroma.

Can we invent that please? Oh no, it already exists. And shockingly has 3 stars on Amazon. Or maybe not shockingly. I would probably buy it.

Back to the ‘za: the outer crust itself was like a stiff roll ~ not crusty, not really chewy. And it wasn’t greasy which was nice to not have to use a hundred napkins.

My only contention would be that it was slightly overdone and slightly cold, which made me wonder if they brought us a pie that was already made and sitting under the heat lamps for a while. Which is why I would go in next time and order counter-side.

All in all, a probable return visit is in order.
