Pizza veterans. In 1945, World War II army veterans Vincent and Tony Curcurato returned home to New York City to open a new chapter in their life and a Morningside Heights pizzeria. In doing so, V & T joined a country-wide movement that helped define "pizza" for all Americans. Over seventy years later, amidst an evolving pizza landscape, V & T Pizzeria Restaurant serves as well-preserved time capsule of where pizza has been. Take a seat in one of the two vast dining areas, pop an antacid and get ready for a trip down memory lane. The extra large slices, loaded with oily whole milk mozzarella and generous toppings weigh down the gas-powered puffy crust in all the right ways. Take plenty of small bites successively or be ready for a stringy cheese pull that could extend from your mouth to the other side of the table. V&T makes a great college slice. If you know anyone who attended nearby Columbia University, I'm sure they'll nostalgically agree.

2. I brought the rest of the pizza to my softball game. It was the first round of the playoffs and we won! The pizza powered us to the win. Corey hit two home runs and I went 3 for 3. Thanks, V & T!
