Somethings never change, hopefully NY Pizza Suprema is one of them. For over 40 years, this Italian owned pizzeria has been importing high quality ingredients into their refrigerator and exporting them on each and every pie they make. And they make a lot of pies. During lunch, the line of folks trying to get a slice of Suprema stretches almost across the street into Penn Station. It moves quickly thanks to the folks behind the counter. They are a happy staff proud to be maintaining the legacy and recipes of the late Salvatore Riggio. My favorite slice is the plain cheese but I prefer a more savory than sweet tomato sauce.
If you like sweet though, try a slice of the Sicilian "upside down slice" - so named because the sauce is on top of the cheese. The ingredients are also of the highest quality but the thicker crust is much more filling. NY Pizza Suprema may look and charge like an ordinary slice place, but it tastes like your new favorite pizza joint. Stop by and try it, I'll meet you there.
