shula’s….five towns…the workers there are such NICE and WARM people. its always fresh and always delicious! i got sick of the rest of the places in the five towns. another place has doughy pizza which is not what pizza is. another one looked moldy every time we went in and another place had roaches crawling everywhere!

i make the best pizza in my neighborhood. the reason it is so good is because of the fresh ingredients and cleanliness of my kitchen,

I make the best pizza in Rockland County. The reason it is so good is cuz my Bubby gave me her secret recipe.
April 11, 2011 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #1016491
the old Netanya on Ave. J in Flatbush: the best tasting sauce (to me… not spicy), & nice ‘n cheesy. but now there’s new ownership & I have yet to find a pizza place that has the sauce just how I like it.
April 11, 2011 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #1016492
Pizza Time makes the best pizza in Flatbush. The reason it is so good is because of The Service & The Taste.

Amnon’s makes the best pizza in BP. The reason it is so good is because of the huge turnover, so its always fresh, and the boss’ watchful eye. Amnon was going to sell and retire, but hes still at it, amush! Nice guy!
April 11, 2011 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1016495
Pita land in Monsey- thick crust, very moist pizza, nice ppl working there and very friendly place in general! where are all the monseyers sticking up for their place?!?!?!?
April 11, 2011 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #1016496
bennys makes the best pizza on avenue m cuz its taste like its straight from italy!
April 11, 2011 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1016497
“The old Netanya on Ave. J”
I agree; and if the new owners would have kept the Netanya recipe, they’d still be in business.

April 11, 2011 10:48 pm at 10:48 pm #1016500
The old Netanya was the best. I remember when I was in yeshiva we went there on Fridays to get their special – 2 slices, fries, and a soda for $3.25. And don’t forget the plate of pickle chips they’d throw in!
April 11, 2011 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1016501

Netanya’s was my family’s meeting place for years…loved the pizza…before my family moved…to Netanya

The pizza store on the Lower East Side is heavenly!! Like delicious!!!
April 12, 2011 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1016503
The place that baked a roach into the pizza and then offered me another slice when I pointed it out.
April 12, 2011 2:16 am at 2:16 am #1016504
The best Pizza in Lower East Side is … (drumroll… pu-leez):
Shalom Chai Pizza
April 12, 2011 2:17 am at 2:17 am #1016505
The best Pizza in the Five Towns is David’s (on Central). He’s so polite and takes a genuine interest.
April 12, 2011 3:14 am at 3:14 am #1016506
I’m so surprised no one said it:
Rosa’s in the Empire State Building has amazing pizza!
There is tons of variety- including the popular french fry slice!
April 12, 2011 3:18 am at 3:18 am #1016507
Mendlesons in boro park ‘cuz of the sauce
April 12, 2011 4:04 am at 4:04 am #1016508
A pushita yid- your CRAZY!!! I’m so disgusted!! And I was planning to have pizza for supper tomorrow!
April 12, 2011 4:08 am at 4:08 am #1016509
Go happiest and erm_saywhat! hurray for the lower east side. i was born there and grew up there! i now live elsewhere but the LES will always be a part of who i am.
anyway – there’s a pizza place in teaneck nj (at least i think it’s still there). It’s called Pizza Crave. YUMMMMM! not only the best pizza, but all their food is great. the place is nice and clean. every time we took a trip to ny – we made sure to stop at pizza crave (we have friends in teaneck – that’s how we found out about the place). We haven’t been back to ny in a while. I miss it.
April 12, 2011 4:09 am at 4:09 am #1016510
mendelsons in bp is also good.
April 12, 2011 5:22 am at 5:22 am #1016511
Bon Appetit pizza is very good and very courteous.
April 12, 2011 12:05 pm at 12:05 pm #1016512
Pizza Time on Ave J. Best sauce & crust by far!
April 12, 2011 1:12 pm at 1:12 pm #1016513
Mother in IsraelMember
I have lots of relatives on the Lower East Side and agree that Shalom Chai has the best pizza I’ve ever tasted. We go there every time we visit my aunt and uncle.
April 12, 2011 1:16 pm at 1:16 pm #1016514
apushatayid: I once had that when I was younger! We had a pie delivered, and there was a roach in it. My brother called them up and told them. They said they’d send over another pie ASAP. My brother said, “Why, so we can get another roach?”
On a side note, if you see a roach was baked into a pizza, I wonder if the oven needs to be kashered?
April 12, 2011 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #1016515
ha ha ha haMember
feif- what kashered when you have a fly fall into a pot of soup that pot needs to be kashered??!!?? and if it falls into a cup of hot tea the cup has to be kashered???
April 12, 2011 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #1016516
pizza pious- five towns- best pizza, plain fries, garlic knots, and ZEPPOLIES!!!!
Amnons- in BP- hands down-

April 12, 2011 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #1016517
reading this thread is making me hungry for…… pizza!!! wat else? Hold the roaches!!!
April 12, 2011 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #1016518
One things is for-sure: the letter-gradings show a lot. Now when stores don’t have good grades I don’t eat there with my friends or family…People really don’t know what filth they’re eating.
On another note, pizza time rocks!
April 12, 2011 11:13 pm at 11:13 pm #1016519
pizza Time in FLatbush on ave J cause i love their “Grandma slices”- (square with cheese then sauc-YUMMMMMMMY)
April 12, 2011 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #1016520
What about out of Brooklyn? or out of new york?
April 12, 2011 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #1016521
“Pita land in Monsey- thick crust, very moist pizza, nice ppl working there and very friendly place in general! where are all the monseyers sticking up for their place?!?!?!?”
Monseyers are not exectly the bigest pizza eaters to begin with, but for that rare ocasion its Chai pizza.
April 12, 2011 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #1016522
The grades don’t mean anything I haven’t seen anybody get anything but an A
April 12, 2011 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1016523
I miss Netanya a lot. They really had the best pizza and the couple who owned the shop are very nice!!!
April 12, 2011 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #1016524
@Feif Un: Re: Roaches in the pizza: EWWWWW!!!
April 12, 2011 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #1016525
Golden Mom: oh yes, the grades DO mean a lot. Maybe you haven’t been around New York/Brooklyn to see them! Many stores did get B’s or C’s(gasp!)And I could predict most of the grades..u could tell how dirty a store is.
April 12, 2011 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #1016526
NO GOOD PIZZA IN TORONTO 🙁
but in brooklyn, Bon Apetit on Coney Island between L and M has amazing pizza, and very good specials! yum!
April 13, 2011 12:02 am at 12:02 am #1016527
Lakewood Kosher Pizza on Clifton and 1st makes one of the best pizzas I have ever tasted!
Also, the old kol tuv pizza at the capitol… I forgot the new name but new owners and new recipe make pretty good pizza too! Tho the truth is I must say that I like all the pizzas I have tasted in the Lkwd places!
oh… I am so hungry!!!!!!!!
April 13, 2011 12:03 am at 12:03 am #1016528
Pizza Mayven in LA has by far the best Pizza anywhere in the world. (Just make sure you get a fresh slice).
April 13, 2011 5:54 am at 5:54 am #1016529
shkoyach – I haven’t tasted a decent pizza here yet. If you want good pizza – go to Deal.
April 13, 2011 12:59 pm at 12:59 pm #1016530
Di Fara, Midwood.
Too bad it isn’t Kosher. But I do have a real Yetzer Hara when I am in Brooklyn to try a slice.
April 13, 2011 2:50 pm at 2:50 pm #1016531
pumper-we went there once and the second time my husband went there him and some other guys got food poisoning from there! we stay far away!
erm_saywhat-if the hangout wasnt as it was more people would be there. I HATE going there on Sat nights eventhough i dont get there anymore, but there was a kid walking around without a shirt and I told the owner that I wasnt gonna come in anymore.
April 13, 2011 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1016532
too bad you had a bad experience there. (Guess that can happen almost anywhere) you are just missing out on some seriously good pizza! Grandma slices are the best!
April 13, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #1016533
“Rosa’s in the Empire State Building has amazing pizza!”
Where is this store (entrance)? I’ve been by the ESB many, many times and I’ve never seen it. All I know about is the pizza shop across the street on 33rd closer to 6th Ave.
April 13, 2011 7:36 pm at 7:36 pm #1016535
out of town: tov pizza and mama leah’s (cheeseless, with vegetables) – both are delicious!
April 13, 2011 11:09 pm at 11:09 pm #1016536
It is closest to the entrance on 33rd. When you go in, make a left and there it is! (It recently turned kosher, so you may not have noticed it before.)
April 14, 2011 12:22 am at 12:22 am #1016537
Hey pumper, I’m always looking for new restaurants/pizza stores in the city..Do u know exactly where that place is? Do u know the hechsher too?
April 14, 2011 2:10 am at 2:10 am #1016538
Pizza King! best kept secret in brooklyn
April 14, 2011 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1016539
over a cup of coffee-
It is a great pizza shop called Rosa’s located inside the Empire State Building. Go in by the 33rd street entrance, make the first left, and there it is!
I am pretty sure that the hechsher is OU-Cholov Yisroel
If you check it out I am sure that you will love it!
February 21, 2013 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1016541

Fialkoffs from Monticello!!! The Pizza there is Amazing! And its a family owned for years!
February 21, 2013 9:04 pm at 9:04 pm #1016544
“i broke mine in the old city with my cousins.”
how did they taste?
February 21, 2013 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm #1016545
lol. I meant I ate WITH them.
February 21, 2013 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1016546
Popa’s because of the crust.

Bravo pizza in NYC.
Seriously crowded, but the pizza is DELICIOUS!
February 21, 2013 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #1016548
Solo is turning into a pizza restaurant. F Fabricant from NY Times wrote:
But wait, there’s more. Adriani is also famous for his montanara pizza. They first fry the dough, put toppings and bake it a 1000 degree wood fired oven. That’s similar to the oven we use to bake shmura matzo.
February 21, 2013 11:03 pm at 11:03 pm #1016549
Rosa’s is no longer kosher. Bravo Pizza went kosher and is fantastic.
Pastene brand makes San Marzano tomatoes with the OK hechsher. I think ShopRite carries their items which are really good.
Pastene tonno, Italian tuna in olive oil, is far superior to American tuna, and is OU.
February 22, 2013 12:05 am at 12:05 am #1016550
Eli’s Bagels and Pizza Garden in Monsey! They serve brick-oven Pizza with a nice thin crust. and they have a GREAT counter worker.
February 22, 2013 12:32 am at 12:32 am #1016551
15th Ave Pizza! AKA Naim’s.

Anyone ever tried Posh Tomato? It looks nouveau.

iz nisht ken pizza
May 23, 2014 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1016561
I beg to differ. If you check up the holy googler rebbe it seems there is a tzad to say that they fall into the geder of pizza. (and lfi other poskim, such as the egel hazahav and the baal otzitz nokev,”Lahamagine” has a din pizza. although I’d like a sfardi to verify this for me)
May 25, 2014 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #1016562
Mercaz Hapizza in Beit Shemesh! SO yummy and chewy.
May 25, 2014 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #1016563
If you’ve ever been to Italy, the real Italian pizza is the best. Other than that, my sister in law’s is amazing.
May 25, 2014 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #1016564
Notasheep, is popa your sister-in-law?
May 25, 2014 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #1016565
Absolutely not! In case you didn’t realise from old posts of mine, I live in Gateshead, and my sister in law also does.
May 25, 2014 10:58 pm at 10:58 pm #1016567
I’m making a new recipe soon.
May 25, 2014 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1016568
What’s wrong with the old one?
