A common theme of New York is the quality of their pizza and how fond folks are of it. I consider myself a big fan of good pizza, but I will admit that I wasn't impressed after moving here. Some of the places that came highly recommended I found dry and just not that flavorful. This was until the day we signed on our apartment. We were getting the run around at our credit union trying to get an official check so we went for a quick bite while we had to wait. Thankfully we were on 31st and 8th avenue and stumbled upon the NY Pizza Suprema.
NY Pizza Suprema was established in 1964 by an Italian immigrant, Salvatore Riggio, and is still owned by the Riggio family. Salvatore's motto was "Do one thing and do it better than anyone else." He felt this way about the plain cheese slice, so that was all they served until 1988. Now the menu has expanded from the cheese slice to supreme pizzas, broccoli rolls. and calzones.
I find myself happily sticking with a slice of pepperoni and a slice of sausage. I am just thankful I live a little too far away to convince myself to walk there more often. It could get bad.
