Last Friday my babe and I ordered pizza from a place called New York Pizza and Pasta. The pizza was absolutely amazing. When you think of New York pizza, you think greasy, cheesy, and thin crust. This pizza checked everything off the list. My boyfriend and I ate the entire pizza that night, with him eating most of it of course lol. We both loved everything and we would definitely order again.
Now there are five things I look for in a good pizza:
Presentation: As you can see, it looks very yummy and cheesy! The cuts are nice and big. Thin crust and everything. Not too burned at all. Just right. They were suppose to do half pepperoni and half cheese, but as you can see the order taker got it wrong. Lucky for them it looked to good to complain.
Dough: Thin crust and not too mushy. Crispy but with a fluffy taste. It was the crust that wasn’t left behind. After I ate the pizza, I finished the crust.
Sauce: Flavor, flavor, flavor. Nice amount of season and the perfect amount spread on the pie.
Taste: A+ , it was just really good. It was tasty, greasy, and very cheesy.
Price: I ordered a medium 14’’ pizza and slice of strawberry cheesecake. I’m going to round it to about $20 with tax. Not expensive and delicious.
This Friday my babe and I ordered from a pizza place called Streets of New York. So, I rather start with good news first, when delivering good and bad news about anything. I thought it was okay. Ordering pizza at about 8 p.m., after barely eating all day, your hungry. It was eatable if hungry. My boyfriend didn’t like it at all. He was so disappointed. I thought it was okay, but he thinks he is a pizza connoisseur, so of course he’s right lol. Just to let everybody know I am the real pizza connoisseur. O.k., lets get right into it.
Five things I look for in a good pizza:
Presentation: Was okay, I mean it looks good right. A little bit too cooked thou.
Dough: It didn’t taste fresh and doesn’t give me New York. The pizza crust wasn’t thin and I never had to ask for thin crust when ordering from a pizza place representing New York. So I was upset about that.
Sauce: No real flavor. The sauce was sort of absent from the pizza.
Taste: C+, Its okay. Wasn’t worth the price they are asking for.
Price: $17.99 for just the pizza. Bought three chicken average wings which bought it to a total of about $28.00.
If I would have to choose between these two pizza’s I would have to go for New York’s Pizza & Pasta for the win.
It was just better for a lesser price and you don’t have to request thin crust lol. #pizza #Vegas #vacation #bestpizza #food

As an Expat living and working in Uzbekistan, I’ve been sustaining myself more on take-out pizza than on other foods with all the restaurants being shut down for a month. Fortunately, pizzerias here are very good. In Toronto, Canada, our best pizza was New York style at an Italian restaurant called Vesuvio’s. Sadly, the joint is closing for good on April 19 after 63 years of business and having earned countless awards from pizza experts.
Wow that’s a very long time.
Judging New York by the chaotic pattern of the salami slices and your comments about the great taste, shows it’s a very busy joint and they are professionals.
I agree 😊
Love your post and complete analysis. If you like New York pizza I would like to recommend you try COUSINS NY Pizza and Pasta. My cousin and I will be opening the restaurant later this month (end of April 2020).
