Day 31, 2019: My Pie Pizzeria Romana (Midtown East, NYC)



DAY 31: OCTOBER 31st, 2019

LOCATION: My Pie Pizzeria Romana (690 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022)

GUEST(S): Armando Diaz

ORDER: 2 slices of Margherita (organic Italian tomato sauce, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella, fresh tomato, extra virgin olive oil and black pepper), 2 slices of Truffle Oil and Mushroom (Italian virgin olive oil with truffle, fresh mushrooms, part skim mozzarella)

Roman around New York City. My Pie Pizzeria Romana offers top notch grab-and-go Roman style pizza in Manhattan's Midtown East neighborhood.  The topping-centric rectangular style is sold al taglio ("by the cut") which is the equivalent to approximately two square slices. This makes the high quality pizza not only a bargain but highly shareable.  It is also portable which may be relevant since there are not many seats nor bathrooms in the dining area. One of the things that sets My Pie apart from the rest is the attention paid to the crust.  It is made from a mixture of multiple natural flours and fermented without sugar over two days. Then, once baked in the electric oven specifically designed for this dough, the crust becomes sturdy, light, and flavorful - perfect for creative toppings to be layered upon it. With a vast array of choices, I recommend getting one you know you will like and one My Pie original. Safe choices include the Margherita, the Grandma, or the Three Cheese whereas the more non-traditional signature pies include the Truffle Oil and Mushroom, the Zucchini Artichoke, or the Potato Gogonzola.  While the names may seem self-explanatory, you have to taste it to appreciate how well the expertly chosen flavors complement each other. Considering the opening of PQR and Mama's Too and now two locations for My Pie Pizzeria Romana, the city is more than embracing Roman style pizza. Rather than traveling to Rome to get it, I suggest you head on over to your local My Pie Pizzeria Romana.
