How to Find the Best Pizza in New York City

By Viator, November 2017

0 1 Review | Add your review

If New York City had an official food, it would be pizza. From grab-and-go slice joints to upscale pizzerias, the city has countless crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings options. So how to choose? See below for tips on finding the best pizza in NYC.

Highlights
  • Celebrate a slice of NYC history at old-school Brooklyn pizza joints like Grimaldi's, L&B Spumoni Gardens, and Di Fara Pizza.
  • Visit Lombardi's, the first pizzeria in America, which still makes its pies the old fashioned way: in coal-fired ovens.
  • Get a taste for Brooklyn's new wave of gourmet pizzerias at trend-setting establishments like Roberta's.
  • Learn the difference between Neopolitan and Sicilian styles on a pizza-themed walking and tasting tour.
  • Tour Manhattan's best pizza shops during a private trip with transportation in a vintage New York City taxi.
  • Try your hand at making some pies of your own during a pizza cooking class.

Pizza Walking Tours
The classic New York City slice is designed to be eaten while standing or on the move. That's why a pizza walking tour is the perfect way to sample a slice of the city's legendary pizza culture. You'll cover lots of ground as you walk, taste, and explore this famous food. You might focus your walking trip on the mix of old and new pizzerias in Brooklyn, or head to Manhattan, which is home to one of the oldest pizzerias in the United States. If you're still hungry for more, many walking tours offer pizza tastings paired with samples of other foods like dumplings, falafels, and gelato.

Pizza Cooking Classes
A cooking class is a great way to take your love for all things pizza to the next level. You'll learn how to shape the dough, apply just the right amount of marinara sauce, and layer the perfect blend of cheese and toppings. Pizza-focused cooking lessons are also a great way to learn about the main differences between New York– and Chicago–style pies.
