Bleecker Street Pizza – 69 Seventh Avenue South, Manhattan, NY

I am a firm believer that the best pizza in New York City comes from Bleecker Street Pizza. I’m not alone either. The Food Network has named it the best pizza in New York City three years in a row.

Situated on the corner of Bleecker Street and Seventh Avenue, it won’t win any awards for decor though – the interior is tiny, made up of about five small tables and high tops, and a small glass display counter showcasing a variety of pizzas in front of the pizza oven. But who cares about what the inside looks like? The reason you go to Bleecker Street is for the pizza, not the atmosphere.

Deliciousness at Bleecker Street Pizza

What makes the pizza at this place is the crust. It’s thin, crispy and has a great crunch to it. You can taste the remnants of cornmeal on the bottom accompanied by simple, yet sublime sauce and mozzarella cheese. The flavors, aroma and crunch activate all your senses with each bite.

The Verdict

I said it earlier and I’ll say it again; Bleecker Street Pizza boasts the best pizza in New York City. Whenever I’m in the area I always make sure I stop by for a quick slice and give my taste buds a piece of heaven. I couldn’t ask for anything more in a slice of pizza. I highly recommend Bleecker Street Pizza and will continue to make this my choice for pizza in the city.
