My search for the best pizza in New York continues….

SPEEDY ROMEO, 376 Classon Avenue (at Greene Avenue), Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

When I visited St. Louis a few years ago, I discovered a relatively obscure pizza style I never even knew existed. St. Louis pizza was unheard of in these parts. And here I was thinking that New York had every style of pizza imaginable. Was it topped with barbecue and baked on gooey butter cake? What could possibly separate the pizza in “the Gateway to the West” from the rest of the world?

I must admit I wasn’t immediately won over when I visited Imo’s in downtown St. Louis. The pizza was cracker thin and it was caked with a gooey processed cheese called Provel. Evidently if you grew up with the stuff, you learned to love and crave it. Having come to this later in life, I wasn’t as nostalgic for the greasy, plastic flavor. It was only a matter of time before this oddity was brought to the big city and it makes perfect sense that Brooklyn is where that niche was filled. (more…)
