I tried their deep dish pizza takeout and liked it, so been meaning to go here to try the “New York Style” pizza, and finally did last night.
First thing, they’re doing the crust right. Thick enough, crispy, chewy. None of the hyper-thin or even crackery stuff you get here. No one would look twice at this in NYC. 10/10. Major. Annoyingly the sauce isn’t up to snuff, and not like the sauce I think they used on the deep dish. It’s almost like they used tomato paste out of the can. I’m not crazy about the cheese either, I don’t know how to describe it except by saying it’s too soft and not flavorful enough. It should be slightly chewy and milky tasting. All this was detracting from the experience when my wife helpfully noted “I like this because it’s not so salty.” I put some salt on it, and that improved things a lot. That’s not something you’ll ever have to do in NYC, but what the hell. With the crust and passable toppings with a little salt, I’ll take the quotes off New York in the future. Really good reheated just now too. I’ll definitely be back.
