'Always Hungry' Disappointed After Revisiting La Pizza Fresca


The blog Always Hungry visited La Pizza Fresca, the first New York City pizzeria to really stress its Neapolitan bone fides (it was the first joint in the city to receive certification from the Vera Pizza Napoletana association) to see how it held up after all the high-profile Naples-stilo openings as of late. After doing a pie-by-pie tasting, the folks there didn't like it:

Of course, the real draw of a Neapolitan style pizza is the thin crust, and La Pizza Fresca’s limp, chewy base was dangerously close to that of Franny’s, a problem with every pie.

Ooh, and a swipe at Franny's, too.
