An Easy Guide to New York-Style Pizza, Bronx, New York

Pizza is one of the oldest types 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, when it was served 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 the Bronx sticks to the basics by serving up traditional NYC-style pies.

Here are just three of the most popular New York-style pizzas:

  • pizzaNew 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 a generous helping 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 New York food scene. They’re seen as being an authentic Italian pie and include Italian ingredients. For added flavor, they’re baked in a wood-fired oven.
