Pizza originated in Italy after mobs of French chefs smashed every dish in the country in a fit of jealousy, leaving hungry Italians nothing to put their tomatoes, cheese, and sausage on but leftover disks of dough. Scoff at traditional tableware with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza at I Love N.Y. Pizza.
Specializing in thin-crust, New York–style pizza, I Love N.Y. Pizza slings individual slices and a menu of full-sized, decorated pies. Traditional pizzas like cheese, meat lovers, and Ninja Turtle deluxe are available, as well as specialty pizzas named after notable places and institutions from the Big Apple.
The Brooklyn Bridge piles on potato, bacon, ranch dressing, and fresh mozzarella for a hearty, stomach-sticking pie ($11.95–$18.95). Olives, roma tomatoes, roasted red peppers, red onions, olive oil, and garlic create the Park Ave 'za favored by young socialites ($13.95–$22.95), and the Greenwich Village, a spicy white pie with ricotta, pepperoni, spinach, and red pepper ($10.95–$18.95), is best served with a side of talking typewriter. Create your own pizza ($10.50–$14.50, plus $1.75–$2.50 per topping) with a slew of meat, veggie, and cheese toppings, as well as your choice between New York and Sicilian styles of crust.
