New York Style Pizza at Rossario's

Originally uploaded by lools.

Nothing beats a slice of New York style basic cheese pizza at 3 a.m. in the morning. Hard core New Yorkers will argue that nothing beats New York slice pizza period. But they're just being New Yorkers, arguing New York's supremacy in no matter what.

Pizzas from neighbourhood pizza parlors in New York tend to be much thinner than the famous Deep Dish Chicago pizzas. The thin crust allows for faster cooking but less dense toppings. Just the way I love my pizza. The crust is also usually prepared by tossing it up in the air and twirling it. It's quite a sight to see the acrobatics that are possible with pizza crust. Food Network even hosts an annual pizza tossing competition where the winner gets national bragging rights!

We stumbled upong Rossario's in the Lower East side last night after a friend's 30th birthday bash at The Skinny, a hip LES drinking hole. Craving carbs at the wee hours of the morning, slice pizza was just what we wanted. Rossario's mushroom and cheese pizza so hit the spot. They had other interesting toppings like thinly roasted eggplant etc which sounded delish!

Every true New Yorker has a favourite pizzeria which they are fiercely loyal to. Given I don't have one yet and am not that passionate about where you can find the best slice in Manhattan, I must not be a New Yorker as yet!
