Luzzo’s Pizzeria in the East Village

Contrary to what you might think, there’s not a lot of pizza places I really love out here. I think my Midwestern roots keep me from loving thin crust as much as I should (although not gonna lie, you will probably never see me refuse a slice). I tried Luzzo’s in the East Village a few months ago with friends, and I actually really enjoyed the thicker crust of the brick over pizza that you find here.

The Bufala: tomato sauce, bufala mozzarella, basil

Funghi: tomato sauce, mozzarella, mushrooms, basil

The size of the pies are not huge, but the slices are thick so don’t let it fool you…two pies easily fed four people with some slices to spare. If you can handle spice, be sure not to forget to use the red pepper oil to dip your slices in.

Red pepper oil -- this thing is brilliant
