Guide to New York Style Pizza, Bronx, New York

Pizza is one of the oldest forms of food in the world. If you traced its roots back to their beginnings, you’d find early varieties prepared in the Mediterranean thousands of years ago with the same basic recipe as today – a flat bread topped with fresh ingredients. Pizza didn’t make its way to the United States until the 20th century, where it was served up in a New York City grocery store by an Italian immigrant. While pizza is available today in a plethora of styles, Emilio’s of Morris Park in Bronx, NY sticks to the tradition by serving up traditional NYC pies.

For all of you fans of this staple Italian food, check out some of the most famous styles of New York pizza pie:

  • New York: The quintessential New York pizza found in pizzerias around the city is based on the Neapolitan-American pie prepared by immigrants at the turn of the century. These pizzas, are large, round and served in slices. Normally, they have a thin crust with tomato sauce and an excess of low moisture mozzarella cheese.
  • Sicilian: The Sicilian pie can be found at fancier Italian restaurants. It’s usually served up in rectangular pieces, rather than slices, since it’s cooked in a pan. The crust is thick and the American variety comes with tomato sauce and a layer of cheese.
  • Neapolitan: In recent years, Neapolitan pies have found their way into the food scene of New York. They’re seen as being an authentic Italian pie, and when prepared according to standards, they include Italian ingredients and they’re baked in a wood-fired oven.

Now, whether you eat these pizzas from a food truck, a pizzeria or an Italian restaurant is up to you – but anytime you’re in the Bronx, drop by Emilio’s of Morris for some authentic New York pie. To see their menu, visit them online or call (718) 822-6758.
