Pizza is a democratic food. People from all walks of life love it: young and old, rich and poor, and from all races, religions, and nationalities. However, all pizzas are not created equal. Once you have tried a neapolitan pizza, you will know what I mean and you will be hooked forever. It is baked in a wood-burning oven at very high heat, using very specific techniques and ingredients that are dictated by industry associations, such as the Association Verace Pizza Napoletana (http://www.pizzanapoletana.org/public/pdf/disciplinare%202008%20UK.pdf).
In honor of National Pizza Day, I would like to share some of my favorite pizza restaurants in New York City.
