When anyone makes a list of the most iconic foods in New York, pizza is usually at or near the top of said list. Tell any New Yorker that you’re heading into the city, and they will passionately give the name of their favorite pizzeria. Here at Mario’s Pizza, we bring a little of that delicious Brooklyn style to North Carolina. Our authentic pizza recipes are guarded family secrets, but we’d love to share a slice or two with your family! If you’re looking for New York style pizza near me, head out to one of our many locations to see what you’re missing.
When someone talks about the style of a pizza, people usually think of one of two things: New York style pizza or Chicago style pizza. In actuality, pizzas vary greatly in many regions, but the difference between New York pizza and Chicago pizza is style.
New York style pizza is flat with a thinner chewy yet crispy crust. It doesn’t have a super doughy crust like some other thinner pizzas. Traditionally, it has a red tomato sauce, shredded cheese, and other optional toppings. This kind of pizza is perfect for eating on the go, since you can pick up a huge slice, fold it, and eat it as you are walking down the street.
On the other hand, Chicago style pizza is a very thick pizza also known as “deep dish.” This type of pizza has a chunkier sauce, with cheese and other toppings layered on the bottom and sauce on top. The edge is higher, like a fruit pie crust, and you often have to eat this kind of pizza with a fork rather than just grabbing a slice.
Whether you like a thinner crust or a deep dish pizza may be a matter of personal preference, but among thinner crust pizzas, many people consider New York pizza to be the best. So what sets pizza from New York apart? And how do we bring those flavors here to North Carolina?
First, many people believe that New York pizzas are the best because of the water, but we actually believe it has more to do with the recipe. We’ve handed our recipes down through the generations, all the way from Italy. Originally, our family operated a pizzeria in Brooklyn before coming to the North Carolina coast and then later moving inland to the Triad region. We don’t need New York water to make a great pizza.
It’s not just about the ingredients. We also use traditional cooking methods for our pizzas. And, like any good New York pizza, our toppings go all the way to the edge of the pie. We make sure every pizza is loaded with flavor.
We love pizza, but if you’re in the mood to eat like a New Yorker, there are a few other delicious dishes to try as well, both here at Mario’s Pizza and at other restaurants and bakeries.
Some of our other favorite iconic New York eats include “street meat” (gyro or pork souvlaki) with white sauce, egg creams, black and white cookies, and of course hot dogs.
