Bleecker Street Pizza (New York, NY)

a slice of Nonna Maria

JS and I were walking about in Greenwich Village and happened upon this storefront.

Pizza, you say? Well, one definitely has to have pizza when in New York, don't you think?

JS and I were actually looking to eat pizza at John's Pizzeria on Bleecker Street, but found out they didn't sell slices. It really wasn't the best time for a whole pie, so we decided to pass. But, a few minutes later, here was Bleecker Street Pizza calling out to us.

An endorsement, you say? We don't put too much stock into these types of proclamations, but figured, "Well, the pizza should at least be passable!"

By luck (I don't exactly recall how we came to choose this flavor), we ordered a slice of their Nonna Maria pizza.

It had tomato sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan and basil.

Thin crust. It was very nice and crisp.


That was us being posers and trying to fold the slice in half -- without much success, as you can see. The crust was simply too crisp.

I don't know if this is what a "New York pizza" is supposed to be, but this was a fine slice. A very fine slice, indeed.

And look, apparently we were very lucky to have come across this place! Read the NYC Food Guy wax poetical about the Nonna Maria.

  1. fabulous! bleeker street is good - don't think it's the best in the city but i also don't trust food network for alot of things on food. the best pizza happens to be places where you don't really just get a slice - johns (as you mentioned), arturos, lombardi's, totonno's,etc.etc. but there are plenty of great "by the slice" places... just gotta search.

    there are websites dedicated to pizza in nyc... there's that many places!

  2. Aw yeah, now that's what I'm tawkin' 'bout! *sigh* how I miss those New York thin crust pizzas. So simple yet so profoundly good.

  3. we are never full:
    Vancouver totally sucks on the pizza front (for the most part). NYC is where it's at, it seems! =)

    Yeah, we can't get them here in Vancouver either!
