When I visited NYC, I wanted to experience the good ol fashion New York Sicilian pizza. I discovered Prince Street Pizza on my first trip to New York and it has left an impression on me like my first orgasm.
Prince Street Pizza is a little pizza parlor right off of Bowery and Prince Street in Nolita. The popular area where bars are abundant and drunk people are a dime a dozen like Instagram fitness trainers. By the way, I’m into fitness…Fit this whole pizza in my mouth.
Prince St Pizza is a couple of skips from my buddy’s apartment in Lower East Side and it’s always the first thing I eat when I land in New York. As you imagine, I’m running to Prince St like two lovers in a field of grass running towards each other. However, it’s just me and my one true love, which is the Pepperoni Sicilian.
It’s your typical pizza parlor with the red bricks decor, pizza on display, and red brick ovens. There’s a crowd that grows after 11 pm due to the nearby bars and it fills up the parlor. It comes with the typical New York attitude and response after ordering “Going or staying?” I usually reply with “Da fuq if it matters.” However, the pizza is world-class. I’ve been to New York on an annual average of 3-4 times since my first trip. I fly back just for their pizza, Halal Guys Chicken & Rice and the blow.
Every trip to New York for me has included freezing two whole Sicilian pizzas over night to bring with me back to Los Angeles. Every. Single. Time. I slang them how like Biggie used to like crack rock. Unfortunately, I get high off of my own supply and never end up selling anything.
Now, the pizza. Prince Street serves both thin and Sicilian pies. Both are amazing but I always go with the Sicilian. When it comes to pizza, I always go with the same thing that gives me pleasure like the narcissistic people on Instragram who like to post selfies only. It’s not like they know we haven’t forgotten how they look. It just works.
- Pepperoni – This is my absolute favorite pizza at Prince St and the standard for Sicilian pizza in the States. The ingredients are perfection. The crispy yet fluffy dough with its tangy zestful marinara sauce, topped freshly made mozzarella and nickel size spicy pepperoni is absolutely divine like the feeling when people get a few new followers on Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat. It’s like yes somebody knows I’m kind of the big deal.
- Margherita – This simple pizza topped with cheese and basil leaves. The fresh basil has a great aroma to it with a mix of anise, pepper and mint. It gives the pie a minty but peppery flavor to the pie yet slightly bitter from the olive oil. It’s a great alternative if you don’t like pepperoni. It’s like when people start using the stupid fairy or dog filters on Snapchat. Okay maybe not.
Lastly, I’ve eaten at a lot of pizza joints in New York and tried every highly regarded place. There is no one who does the Sicilian like Prince Street Pizza. It’s like how nobody created useless internet celebrities like Instagram. It’s hands down the best pizza I’ve eaten in the United States and it beats out Lou Malnati’s every single time. It’s kind of like the battle of SnapChat and Instagram.
