Instead of making another pedestrian pie, Pizza 1's chefs put in the effort to hand-stretch crusts, import olive oil, and use Grande cheese, an Italian mozzarella that originates from high-quality dairy farms. This above-the-call effort has made them the most preferred pie in the area—Pizza 1 was selected as 2012’s Best Pizza by readers of the Tri Boro Patch. Their award might also derive from their selection of 36 specialty pies—one for each hour it would take the DMV to make one specialty pie. That selection includes bruschetta, eggplant rollatini, and a Belly Buster with meatballs, sausage, pepperoni, bacon, and veggies. The menu expands far beyond pizza, however, also including hot subs and Angus burgers, as well as gourmet salads and pasta dinners.
No Man's Land Pizza & Grill's dough spinners quell saucy appetites with crispy thin-crust pies, slinging circular comestibles for dine-in or carryout. The menu bursts with slices, fractioning pizza and providing practice for upcoming geometry tests with flavors such as buffalo chicken, hawaiian, and the NY White, which layers spinach and tomatoes atop a garlic sauce and a sprinkling of ricotta and mozzarella cheese ($14.50–$26.99 depending on size and crust). A thin crust or Sicilian-style's thick, bready base serves as a foundation for customized pizza creations ($14.99 for a 16" thin crust or a small sicilian pan, $2–$3 for each topping), decorating dough in 21 edible accessories, such as pepperoni, blue cheese, diamonds, and pineapple.
More than 20 exotic toppings fight for the affection of hungry teeth at TheFlatzCo., aiming for a snuggly spot atop whole-wheat dough made without yeast but with luxurious ingredients including organic extra-virgin olive oil and sea salt. Flatz protects the fiber-rich crusts of its 11-inch, personal-sized pies by planting peculiar, ecosystem-boosting toppings. The jammin banana flat piles on bananas, strawberries, mozzarella, and Flatz tomato sauce ($12.50), the vampire slayer flat smothers itself in garlic and mozzarella ($10), and the wild forest shroom flat picks four different mushrooms for a fungal feast ($14.50).
Decorative bottles of olive oil perch atop Anna Marie’s display case filled with freshly-baked pizzas, lending a rustic Italian air to the cozy trattoria. Cooks crown these specialty pies and calzones with spinach, Bermuda onions, pepperoni, and hot cherry peppers, as well as whip up colorful plates of veal marsala and chicken or eggplant parmesan. They also crafts more than two dozen gourmet sandwiches named for celebrities, such as the Joe Pesci with roast beef, turkey, ham, and cole slaw, and the Michelangelo, whose recipe consisting of fresh mozzarella, arugula, and tomatoes is painstakingly painted on the ceiling.
