New York style pizza was original born out of Neapolitan style pizza when the first Italian immigrants emigrated to New York City a century ago. The similarities are plain to see; the pizza is large, wide, flat, foldable, and crispy. On the top goes mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. New York style pizza, however, tends to have slices which are absolutely monstrous compared to anything else out there. Sure, Chicago has their deep dish, but it takes two hands to hold most New York style slices.
To go back in time a little bit, the original New York style pizza came from America’s very first pizzeria, Lombardi’s, in Little Italy, founded in 1905. The wide, foldable slices were sold for just five cents back in the day (to be fair, one 1905 U.S. dollar was worth the equivalent of over $28 U.S. dollars in 2018, so they weren’t giving them away or anything).
Some people say that New York’s water supply, with its unique mineral-based properties, is the reason for the unique dough and flavor. We aren’t sure about that part, because we use regular, filtered Florida water with our pizza dough and we’ve got the authentic New York style pizza right here in Orlando!
