NEW YORK CITY | Nothing says typical New York food quite like a slice of pizza, and a favourite of many in this city is Prince Street Pizza
The pizzeria has only been around since 2012, but is housed in the space that was home to the Original Ray’s Pizza since 1959. You can feel the heritage of this tiny spot as soon as you walk in. Brick walls lined with photos of celebrities enjoying pizza here, loud and boisterous staff, and the undeniable smell of pizza.
Prince Street are famous for their “SoHo Square” slices, and the most popular slice is the Spicy Square Pepperoni Slice. It’s a square slice of pizza with slightly spicy fra diavolo tomato sauce, mozzarella, and little pieces of roni cup pepperoni that crisp up in the oven.
It was this pizza that I ordered, and as soon as I took my first bite it was clear that the hype is justified. A thick, light base, loads of quality ingredients, well balanced, and full of flavour. Grab a slice, perch yourself at the counter against the wall, and enjoy the experience.
