Default New York Style Pizza

Lots of restaurants in The Villages advertise that they serve New York style pizza. When I worked, I travelled to NY City a lot. I would often buy a slice of pizza at a local pizza place. It was less than a half inch thick and had equal amounts of sauce and cheese. The sauce was the best part. Some New Yorkers would fold the pizza in half and eat it like a sandwich. Is that still the way they make it in New York? None of the so called New York style pizza I have had here is anything like that. It's too thick, has too much cheese, and you can barely taste the sauce. Definitely not foldable.

Yes, that is still how they make it in NYC. Thin crust, spread the tomato sauce, then sprinkle on the cheese. For a quick slice in NY Penn Station, Rosie's is hard to beat.

Did you read my mind? Believe it or not, I actually just went there today for lunch, which prompted my post. I had a "New York style" cheese pizza. It was too thick, had too much cheese, and very little sauce. Nothing like a real New York pizza. Although, I should add that many people like Sammy's, but it is not what I know to be New York style. I think that I have eaten almost every pizza sold in The Villages area.

Could not find decent "Northeast" style pizza in the villages. Good pizza not only comes from New York, but add New England to the region that knows good pizza - Boston, Providence, New Haven . . . name it.
Now, where is the best pizza and Italian food in this area? In my Northend Boston opinion go to Belleview Pizza up in Belleview. It's the best we have found. BOGO PASTA DINNERS 3 -5 weekdays!
WARNING: Doesn't open until 3PM. CASH ONLY!

Have you tried NYPD Pizza on 446, just east of 301?
They have Sicilian thick crust pie AND ALSO have New York style hand-tossed, thin crust pie baked in a stone oven. The thin crust folds nicely for a nice big bite.

Also, did you know that you can order thin crust pizza at Giovanni's Ristorante a little farther east on 446?
You have to ask for the thin crust as their normal pizza has a thicker non-foldable crust. The thin crust style folds nicely and has what I think is a pretty good mix of sauce and cheese.

I have tried NYPD, but maybe not the thin crust. Have not tried Giovanni's, but I will get to it.

I tried NYPD Pizza on 466, just east of 301, it is the 2nd worst pizza i have ever eaten. First worst was Jerry's in Mt Pleasant Ia in 1968.
