Once in a while I crave for pizza. I’m lying. I always crave for pizza. But I seldom give in to my craving since it’s bad, bad, bad for me. Every time I go to Nail Loft in J. Abad Santos I look across the street and gaze longingly at NY Pizza then turn left and head to the Tofu store for a cup of healthy, yummy taho. Taho is good but I’d rather eat pizza.
One Saturday I gave in and treated myself to one of my favorite pizzas from NY Pizza. I called in my order and in a few minutes I had half of an 18″ pizza in front of me. The pizzas in NY Pizza come only in one size – 18″ which is humongous compared to Shakey’s and Pizza Hut where the largest pizza measures a wimpy 14″.
I always order their Bay Shore anchovy & garlic pizza. It’s simple but packed with flavor from the anchovies. They need to load up on the garlic because I barely tasted it. I loved their crust which isn’t as thin as the pizzas at Amici or CPK but it’s thin enough with a crunchy yet chewy texture. The bottom of the crust is dry with a layer of cornmeal that gave a crisp bite. The one thing I can’t stand is an oily, soggy & soft crust like Pizza Hut’s Viva pizza.

NY Pizza has only one branch in San Juan. So if you’re in the area try it out. You won’t regret it.
