The Original New York Slice: The Pizza Show

  • Published: 02 January 2017
  • New York is the birthplace of many things, but for today's purposes, we're sticking to pizza. Frank starts with a quick history lesson from Scott Wiener, the owner of Scott's Pizza Tours. Then, we hit the streets to see and taste the history for ourselves. The best thing about the city's pizza scene is that it's relatively young, so you can still eat slices from the ovens of the people that started it all and put New York pizza on the map.

    We meet the granddaughters of the man that literally brought pizza over from Naples, and even see the ovens that he used. Then, we hit all the best slices from Greenwich Village to Soho, and finish in Brooklyn at Luigi's Pizza, a place untouched by time.

              Folding the pizza means you taste less toppings... Dumbass move.

                          The majority of these shops have prices like 20-30 bucks for a pizza 🤣🤣 while in the motherland of pizza you can get it for 7-12 bucks (6-10 euros). Pizza is ment to be the people's food! Poor tourists 🥺

                                It’s crazy, Pizza is such a cult and there are so many life’s dedicated to that one type of food. That’s why pizza is so good because you can feel the love for the food almost every time in it

You could probably make the same pizza recipe in an electric pizza oven and it wouldn't taste that good. In Oklahoma the only pizza places we mainly have are the big chains like Dominoes, Pizza hut, or little Caezars . I make my own pizza at home, because these chains don't use 100% cheese and their pizza tastes like sht. I finally got a copycat recipe for pizza hut crust that tastes just like the real thing. You use brown sugar instead of white sugar in the yeast, and a few tablespoons of powdered milk in the flour.
