Thin crust with a thickness factor of about .075; plain cheese is the gold standard; puffy, crispy, slightly chewy rim; cooked in a deck oven at 550F or so without a screen for 5-8 minutes. Probably made with General Mills All Trumps flour; probably made with Stanislaus tomato products. Dough probably cold fermented for 24 hours-- the good stuff, anyway.
Well from what I've heard it's something about the water they use to make the dough. Jews sacrifice white children to bless the water with kaballah heeb deliciousness. That's why the meme has spread so far
>>7319546 its true though, the NY city water has a mineral content that is ideal for bread making
it has been tested, pizzas made with water from different cities in the same oven with the same ingredients at the same time, the only X factor was the water. and in a blind taste test the NY pizza won out unanimously
>>7319394 it is thin enough to get crispy on the bottom but thick enough that there is still some chew and a light natural sweetness
the water quality is just straight up incredible, that's all there is to it. I remember the first time I had a drink of tap water in florida I was fucking stunned that people actually have to drink that shit, and then I found that to be the case everywhere. it all tastes like fucking chlorine and dirt
>>7319578 water is more important because any other type of ingredient can be replicated, and as a matter of fact should always be coming from italy. how many pizzerias in your town are using buffalo milk mozzarella and san marzano tomatoes? because that's what most pizzerias in NY are using unless you are at a place owned by asians or arabs in a ghetto and that leaves the water as the difference maker
>>7319606 florida, peru, anywhere in the eastern hemisphere >implying a dust bowl like california even has enough water to make healthy crops enjoy your sand vegetables >>7319615 >dirty sewer water know that bottled spring water you guys like to buy? that's what we have on tap http://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/58524.html
>>7319620 Wow dude...I guess you may be somewhat right...these other places might be just slightly better because that's their ONLY specialty. California has the most varied climate which makes it a bastion of God-tier food across the board
>in b4 jealousy from not living in California
(Also you're as naive as fuck to think farms in California don't get the water thy need. Source: Mom's husband works at a water company in Southern California)
>>7319620 Spring water. Ok. We can take a step back then: >water is more important because any other type of ingredient can be replicated Huh. So if I want to make the Best Pizza In The World™, can I just buy some 24 pack of spring water at walmart for a few bucks? That's not so bad, overhead on pizzas is great anyways, we'll pass on the minimal extra cost to the customer!
NY 'za is good and is typically made in some pizzeria owned by some family who has been making plain pizza that appeals to the masses for generations, but it is really nothing special. NY pizza was a meme before memes were invented. That's all.
You can find better pizza in CT, like at Pepes or Sallys.
California is the fucking garden of the US, look up any fruit or vegetable besides corn and potatoes, and chances are that most of it comes from California. The entire Central Valley is nothing but farms. Southern Califormia is full of citrus and avocado orchards. NorCal is full of fruit orchards of every type, including apple, mandarins, satsumas, pears, plums, grapes, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries, that go on for miles and miles. The country's capitals of garlic, asparagus, eggplant, and more are here. I'm sure you've seen Blue Diamond brand almonds and other nuts, yep that whole production is here too, and it's HUGE. Driving up highway 99 (aka "The Garden Highway), you see huge farms and dairies on both sides, for hundreds and hundreds of miles, and interspersed with that are Kraft cheese factories, Campbells, Del Monte, etc. Literally getting milk, vegetables, and fruits STRAIGHT from the farms. The Delta area (in-between San Francisco and Sacramento) is filled with rice farms. At the port of Sacramento, there's a giant row of rice silos, ready to ship all over the world. IDGAF if you think California is full of idiots, those idiots supply this country and some other parts of the world with the food you so callously shovel into your mouth. Why the fuck do you think the drought and resulting water crisis is so fucking important?
also new york pizza is thin, greasy, pretty tasty shit. It's a different pizza experience than what you get in chicago or (obviously) california. I will always prefer chicago pizza but there's nothing wrong with a good NY pizza slice.
new york style pizza is literally only good in the immediate area of new york city, long island, and north jersey. try it anywhere else (or get suckered into one of the dozens of sleazy shitholes in the tourist trap parts of manhattan selling what i would qualify as bootleg pizza) and it's hugely disappointing
that is to say, the reason it's good isn't necessarily the style (although it is far superior to chicago pigshit doughloaves) but rather the availability of better-than-usual ingredients and a local tradition informing all of the established pizzerias how to do it right
I feel like New York pizza relies on the popular idea that mobster Italians have some major sector in the city and that their taste in food must surely have diffused into the whole city
Can you even describe New York pizza? Chicago pizza can at least be named, it's thick in crust and almost like a lasagna or a heavy pie. What's the deal, New York? Or is it just that 'New York Pizza' is a way of saying pizza you buy in New York? Can I make New York pizza with all the same ingredients in Texas?
NYC="Big Apple"=Bigger is Better=Giant Flat=NY Style
American Basic="Everything in the Middle"=Basic American Pizza
The true pizza is "Napole' Margherita", which looks nothing nor tastes nothing like Pizza outside of Italy. The sauce is saucy, the cheese isn't shredded, the crust is more breadlike (not sourdough), etc. It also doesn't contain most of the common american toppings, including pepperoni, with the exception of peppers.
>>7319570 The water thing is such a crock of shit, it's not the water, it's people in other places being retarded about actually making pizza, I only use filtered or distilled water and my pizza comes out just as well as the local pizza places. The only thing NY water has going for it is that it's relatively soft compared to other places
>>7319409 There he is. There he goes again. Look, everyone! He posted it once again! Isn't he just the funniest guy around?! Oh my God.
I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark, lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room, giggling like a like girl as you once again type your little /ck/ thread up and fill in the captcha. Or maybe you don't even fill in the captcha. Maybe you're such a disgusting NEET that you actually paid for a 4chan pass, so you just choose the picture. Oh, and we all know the picture. The "epic" Anchovy pizza, isn't it? I imagine you little shit laughing so hard as you click it that you drop your Doritos on the floor, but it's ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh, that's right. Did I fail to mention? You live with your mother. You are a fat fucking fuckup, she's probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all goddamn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on 4chan posting pictures of an anchovy pizza. Just imagine this. She had you, and then she thought you were gonna be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand, and then you became a NEET. A pathetic NEET. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear.You've become a parody of your own self. And that's all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same old dance that he's done a million times now. And that's all you'll ever be.
Is that true that new York is facing a grocery store and supermarket shortage?
I'm from rural Alabama and my cousin which visited NY it said that over yonder you folks have almost no grocery stores like the rest of the states. If so how do you guys get your groceries? Farmer's markets?
