If you are debating between Chicago deep dish or New York’s slice, there really is no debate about whose pizza is the best. New York wins hands down. I’m not just saying that because I am a native New Yorker. There is nothing like a “slice” from the pizzeria.
There is something so yummy and delicious about a slice of NY pizza. What is it exactly? First, the best crust is thin, slightly charred on the bottom and a hint salty. When you fold it, it almost cracks up the middle but it stays together.
Then its the melted mozzarella on top of the sweet marinara sauce. The best slices are hot, dripping with oil from the melted cheese and crisp on the bottom.It really is the best bite of goodness. I know Chicagoans think their deep dish is the best, but lets get real. Chicago style pizza is a casserole not a slice. I like Chicago deep dish. It has all of the same ingredients, however the experience is different.A slice, served on a paper plate, on top of a piece of tissue paper for blotting or holding, with a can of soda and a straw, good cheap, fast eats. You can eat a NY slice on the go. You can’t eat deep dish on the go, you need a knife and fork. The crust is bready and chewy and you can’t hold it or fold it.
We can debate who in the 5 boroughs has the best slice, but we can all agree that a slice is a slice and there is nothing like a NY slice.
