New York Pizza Dept. says: What makes us different is that we start by making our own dough from scratch each and every day. We use New York filtered water and yes…it really makes a difference. Our pizza sauce is homemade using only the finest California vine ripened tomatoes and our secret blend of spices. We then use whole milk mozzarella that is made for us exclusively. It’s guaranteed to be tasty and stringy. We don’t skimp – we use a whole pound of it on an 18” cheese pie. We use fresh produce and the best meats available. We even hand chop our basil that is grown locally.
Ten years ago this family owned and operated business moved from Long Island, New York to Arizona. And yesterday we discovered that they deliver!
New York Pizza Dept. has been a favorite for awhile, but the option of delivery was never available. New York Pizza Dept. pizza is not your average Papa John’s quality delivery pizza. This pizza is hardcore goodness and I was curious as to what the results would be. We are riggght on the border of their delivery zone, but that’s OKAY.
An amazing 45 minutes later and over 5 miles of driving time, (faster than Papa John’s delivery, 1.5 miles away) the 18 inch Pepperoni Beauty arrived…as lovely and hot as it would be delivered to your table.
I have never eaten real New York Style pizza, but my guess is this is pretty close to the real deal. There are 8 huge slices on a very thin crust. Everything above the crust is a wonderful mesh of fresh ingredients and greasiness. The crust itself unleashes its qualities of being made from scratch.
One slice fills up the majority of a dinner plate. It also fills the majority of my stomach.
“To protect and serve great pizza.” Oohh..
Well, however they protected the great pizza before we got it is beyond me, but they surely served a delicious pie with a very polite deliveryman. (free fridge magnet…woo hoo!)
I would say in the end, being out $18 for an 18 inch wonder-of-a-pizza, is pretty much breaking even.
