The Original New York Slice: The Pizza Show

New York is the birthplace of many things, but for today’s purposes, we’re sticking to pizza. Frank starts with a quick history lesson from Scott Wiener, the owner of Scott’s Pizza Tours. Then, we hit the streets to see and taste the history for ourselves. The best thing about the city’s pizza scene is that it’s relatively young, so you can still eat slices from the ovens of the people that started it all and put New York pizza on the map.

We meet the granddaughters of the man that literally brought pizza over from Naples, and even see the ovens that he used. Then, we hit all the best slices from Greenwich Village to Soho, and finish in Brooklyn at Luigi’s Pizza, a place untouched by time.

  • "i would have been skinny probably" (if his parents never left Italy) this guy obviously know so little about Italy. In italy even if you are super poor, you got plenty of food, especially in early '900.

  • I love pizza so much but I cannot with Cheese Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza. Like I need it to have at least 5 substantial toppings, otherwise I feel like "What's the point?" I won't be getting any positive nourishment from those so it feels like a waste to me.
