New York style pizza (crust)

Postby dead ed » Mon Oct 27, 2008 3:59 pm

I'm aware of Ians, but are there any other places in Madison with New York style pizza? You know, the thin crust that you sometimes fold in half to eat?

Before Casa Bianca closed, they had pizza that was like that.....

thank you,

No, have not found the huge thin slices that you fold here yet. Good question. I like the Cafe LaBellitalia thin crust, but its not a traditional NY large diameter foldable thin crust. They cross cut it so you get many more slices out of a large.

Plain cheese Ian's is somewhat close. Not quite the same but it's foldable and somewhat tasty. And fairly cheap - $12 for a 20" pie.

*trembling in barely contained fury over the futile idiocy of yet another obnoxious post about fucking NY pizza*
Sbarro's is finally here for that authentic fake taste of New York.

Is this where someone posts about Madisonians not knowing what real NY pizza is and that [insert your favorite local pizza shop here] sucks. Or perhaps it is where we argue about authenticity or whether NY style or Chicago style is better... and maybe someone explains to us that they lived in NY so they really know.

Blargh!

No, this is where people with chips on their shoulders act like babies.

We don't have New York pizza here.

Do you know why?

BECAUSE THIS ISN'T NEW YORK!!

Just eat what is available here and like it!

Same thing goes for bagels, hot dogs, (insert your favorite New York, Chicago, Philly, etc. food item here)

This isn't Italy either, but I still want to know where the best Italian restaurants are. Or where to get a good Maine lobster or a Maryland crabcake. Sushi grade ahi tuna isn't local, why should I bother looking for it here? Y'all need to get over it.

I try to check out regional WI/Midwestern foods as much as possible (turned my bro on to cheese curds, the Old Fashioned burger, Ingrid's biscuits and local brews this weekend--in addition to the new Muramoto--not really regional, but maybe Madisonian). However, I also want to know where to get the best approximation of my favorite foods here in Madison. Obviously, its rare to get authentic (insert regional food here) everywhere, but its not obnoxious, presumptuous or provincial to ask for honest recommendations. Many of us from out of town rely on this board for advice and speaking for myself, get great info here. I don't think asking for information on NY style pizza and discussing it here is a violation of anything except a thin skin.

Hey boston_jeff.
Nothing like Santarpios in East Boston, is there?
Great place!

Never got to go. It was actually on our list of restaurants to try before we moved here. Problem is, its way out by the airport and we didn't have a car back then living in Allston/Cambridge. In general, Boston isn't known for its pizza, but there were a few pretty good places. I actually have been quite happy with the pizza here. I'll have to go to Santarp's when I return to the East coast.

Really? Because I could have sworn it was.

BTW, for those whose default reaction is overreaction: My previous post was a jab/joke at the countless threads over the years dedicated to this very topic.

Long live Ian's!

I've got no beef with people asking where they can find X in a Z style, where X is food and Z is a geographical region. I like Chicago-style hot dogs, and I've never lived in Chicago. I like good Thai food, but I've never set food in Asia.

It's when people start bitching about how there IS no Z-style X in Madison, that I get my hackles up. That's where the "THIS ISN'T _____!!!" can rightfully come in.

I don't see how this conversation has gotten to that point yet.
