Eaten An Authentic New York Slice

"...But then, in New York, I discovered pizza. It blew my mind wide f---ing open. I would buy ten or twenty slices a day. And then, when I realized you could buy a great big pizza all for yourself, I started ordering them wherever we went."

Since 1975,
Joe's Pizza has been offering classic New York style pizza by the slice in the West Village. Located at 7 Carmine Street (at Bleecker Street), it is a popular spot for both locals and tourists. When we went, there were tons of police officers getting slices. It's also open until 4 in the morning.

Based on a recommendation from
Michael DiComo, New York native and Digital Production Supervisor for the movie I am currently working on, this was the spot I had to try my first taste of authentic New York pizza, so we went to Joe's for lunch today. There was a line, but it moved quickly.

I ordered three different slices. The first of these was a plain cheese pizza.

Our second slice was a pepperoni slice.

The third and final slice had sliced mozzerella on it.

These pizzas had a very good crust. It was firm with a crisp but foldable, and it tasted delicious. An appropriately thin layer of tomato sauce lines the dough. Finally, a perfectly thin layer of cheese goes on top. The distribution of the elements was excellent. Even though we enjoyed the other pizzas, I enjoyed the plain cheese slice the most.

Apparently, I'm not the only one that enjoys a slice of Joe's Pizza. There are pictures of celebrities that also eat at Joe's, including
Neil Patrick Harris, Matthew McConaughey, and Owen Wilson.

This is a very solid pizza. Definitely come here sometime and pick up a couple slices. It's an authentic New York Pizza, and people really seem to love it here. I recommend it, and I bet we'll be back before we leave the city.
