NYC Pizza

Postby jshin » Sat, 18 Apr 2009 8:58 pm

All this talk of NYC pizza...
I'm a NYCer and frequent traveler to the largest Italian pop. outside Italy - Toronto. Pizza was invented, so far as I know or care, in Naples. There is only one place in NYC that makes pizza the original Neapolitan way - Una Pizza Napolitana. No yeast, only starter germinated from the prior days dough, buffala mozzarella from Italy flown in fresh every day, San Marzano tomatos, only enough pizza to last the starter each day. Classic thin crust pizza only done one of 4 ways. No customizations, no condiments. This guy worked at the oldest pizzeria in the world and recreated the exact recipes.

Other notables in NYC: Arturo's on Houston and Il Matonne (sp?).
Water is important in pizza dough as it is in any good bread. NYC has some of the best water in the US. There are huge, I mean big enough to drive dump trucks thru big, water pipes coming straight from Canada into NYC. The problem w/ NYC water are the pipes in bldg's, not in the ground.

Now carry on abt Sing pizza - I'm a newbie to Sing.

it has crept back into my little brain!!! so here it is! (my favorite)

peperoni's at hillcrest (bukit timah, left turn after National Junior College).

with or without rocket, they make tasty inexpensive pies.

unfortunately, no deliveries... so call 10-15 mins ahead for pick ups.

since we collaborated on the last thread together....funny, we were just there last week for the first time - they are pretty good, I liked the atmosphere, and they had very good service

pizza was very good, probably one of my top 5 here, but not my favorite in Singapore...

I LOVE pizza and am particularly interested in this thread. Has anyone found a pizza place here that has decent pepperoni? I am finding only the most disgusting salami type pepperoni, nothing like the pepperoni from the states. Would also like to know where to buy decent pepperoni. We love to snack on it and I can't find the real thing here.

As has been mentioned, NYC water is so pure it does not have to be filtered. It is pumped from upstate New York, not the local creeks, and it is one of only five major cities that don't have to filter their water, along with Boston, San Francisco, and Portland. There is one more, can't remember. That's why their pizza and bagels taste different, because of the mineral content.

I'm yet to have a decent pizza. Its absolutely criminal what they try to pass off here as edible.

I keep hearing of Peperoni's at hillcrest, but surely there's more than 1 decent pizza in Singapore?

What about ones that offer delivery?

So you are a pizza connoisseur and then ask for delivered pizza?

Peperoni is the Italian word for Chilli.
Only Americans and other ignorants think it's sliced sausage.

The term pepperoni is a corruption of peperoni, the plural of peperone, the Italian word for pepper (the fruit, not the spice). The first reference using pepperoni to refer to a sausage dates to 1919.[4] Throughout continental Europe, peperone is a common word for various types of capsicum, including bell peppers and a small, spicy and often pickled pepper known as peperoncono or peperone piccante in Italy and pepperoncini or banana peppers in the U.S. Unlike in Europe, the English word pepperoni is used as a singular uncountable noun.

Only wannabe Italians believe their own propaganda . . . and that applies to emigrant Italians as well. Only ignorants (sic) think that what their mama told them supersedes empirical evidence. :)



Yep

Beppi . . . any relations to Beppi of Sydney? Beppi's of Sydney. His Godson was my best mate, Davide. His father, Natalino, owned Natalino's at the Cross . . . Excellent food . . .

Oh, try this: what is salame piccante or salamino piccante in Italy? I'm trying to jog my memory from when I lived in Milano. :)

Sounds like hot sausage to me, and I just happen to have one of those here lol

Vaucluse, you don't happen to come from that suburb do you? I once rented a room to a couple of birds from there who (it rapidly transpired) were smack-heads. Not cool.

Yup, I do - . . . on the harbour side, Parsley Bay . . . no apartments there (well, one but it is not inhabited by smack-heads)

How can smack-heads afford the place?
