My take on the
quintessential classic

ohn Updike famously said, " The true
New Yorker secretly believes that
people living anywhere else have to
be, in some sense, kidding. " In my lifetime
of visiting New York City, and the 14 years
that I have I called the city home, I think I
can safely say that your average New Yorker
feels that people eating pizza anywhere else
have to be, in some sense, kidding.
There is a confidence and braggadocio
about all things New York City - and
pizza is no exception. It's indisputable that
there are thousands of pizzerias in the five
boroughs. It's also true that there is a culture
of pizza here unique to the world, but what
is true New York-style pizza? It's a difficult
question, really, but one I have given much
thought to. You could say pizza by the slice
is the true New York pizza, but what about
the famous coal-fired oven pizzerias that
only do whole pies? You could say it's the
stone-lined gas deck oven, but today some
of New York's best pizza is coming out of
electric or even wood-fired ovens.
So where is the common ground? What
defines NY-style pizza? While not everyone will agree, and since I wasn't born in
the city I'm sure certain people will leave
my opinions on the sidewalk with piles of
ubiquitous garbage, I'll state my opinion
