I'm in the Mood for Pizza

Here is another photo of pizzas at a restaurant in Union Square on 14th Street between Broadway and 3rd Avenue. I had posted a photo of an eggplant pizza from the same restaurant a couple weeks ago. The reason I love the pizza here is because they are cooked in a traditional wood burning oven and the crust are super thin and crisp. A slice here goes for about US$3.50.

So when was the last time you had pizza for dinner/lunch? How many slices can you eat at one seating?

Ming, the dough seems a bit pale (maybe it's because of the flash). Very interesting array of toppings.

Had homemade pizza Margherita last Thursday.

The prespective makes me smile becasue from here those pizza look huge next to the guy who is serving.
Let's see... the last time I ate a pizza? Ah, that was with you! And I had the whole thing.

Olivier said...

As you, I like thin pizzas, as thin as possible. You can get them in Marseille, Nice... - surprisingly not so easily in Italy!
If I cross the street, there is a small pizzeria (no chain) which makes very good ones. I guess my average consumption is about one or two per month.

On our last trip to NYC, we had this pizza very late at night...and it was oh so good! One slice is plenty though.

from the Bayous!

I love pizza & these look delicious! I like a thin, crispy crust, too, but I also like the thicker sicilian style!

Having it tonight!

Lori said...

Yum! These look delicious! I wish I could say the last time I had pizza was with you and Olivier and Eliane, but I think I've had it several times since then!

Jilly said...

These look good but I agree with Fenix, they look pale. Here we normally see them a little browner around the edges. How many slices? Well I've not seen them in slices here - oh except in Nice, at Cap 3000, they do sell pizza by the slice, in the bread shop outside the supermarket and very good it is too. I guess our pizzas are a little smaller so the answer is I always eat a whole one!

These pizzas look delicious. Next time i'm in NYC i'll be trying some from this restaurant. Yummy!

Chuckeroon said...

Ming, this a "huge" picture. I've never seen a "manufactury of pizza" on that scale. Enjoyable shot!!

Ming the Merciless said...

Fenix & Jilly - I think they are purposely undercooked because they will get an additional 10 minutes in the oven when someone orders a slice or two.

missy said...

One word... Yummy! Hope you are well!

Sonia said...

Hummm! What a huge pizza, Ming! Looks yummy with the crust very thin and crispy!

Like Peter, my average consumption is about one or two per month.

I admit that I am a prejudiced native New Yorker but, in my opinion, no pizza in the world compares to NYC's. Not Chicago deep-dish, not St. Louis cracker crust and certainly not that stuff in Europe with tuna or pineapple on it.

However, I rarely eat pizza now. Being a middle aged, middle class, left-leaning American gives me all these crazy diet worries. But I'll probably have some when I visit my native land next month.

Annie said...

My tummy is full of pizza at this moment. I made one for dinner tonight that looks quite a lot like the tomato one in front. If I weren't already bursting I'd get hungry just looking at all these delights.

Neva said...

Pizza...love it love it love it...and there are GREAT pizza places here in Chicago. I like Lou Malnatti's, deep dish....yummmm. great post.

I had pizza tonite, at Benji & Jakes, upstate NY.

Paz said...

Yum! I had pizza for dinner tonight. I think NYC pizza is the best! ;-)

I have not had a decent restaurant pizza since I moved South :-(

But not all is is lost - I make my own! Roasted garlic and chicken white pizza is my specialty...and I can put away 2 slices at one sitting.

Chris said...

I love pizza, and I agree with Isabella. . . .Papa John's is the "best" we have. . . .

The last time I had pizza was on my cruise last week. . . .I had oen slice of pizza with mushrooms, goat cheese, mozzarella, and sausage. It was a little different, but good.

lv2scpbk said...

I'll take a slice of the tomato one on the right, please.

Gwen said...

Mmmm...these pizzas look fabulous.

I like crispy thin-crust pizza. It's been a while since I have them. Time to hunt!

Belinda said...

OMG - those pizzas look soooooo delicious! I shared a pizza with friends for lunch just yesterday. It wasn't nearly as nice as these look though, unfortunately :o(

Last time? Last friday with cooked ham :-)

Todd HellsKitchen said...

You're making me hungry... And I already ate!

TCho said...

i could eat 4 or 5, which is why I try to stay away from pizza.
