Papa's Tomato Pies Vies with Lombardi's for Title of Oldest Pizzeria in America

Meredith Smith 22 comments

The kinks in America's Pizza Timeline start pretty much at the beginning.

While the alley doesn't serve hot dogs, chicken fingers, or other standard bowling fare—though I did spot beef jerky—they luckily have a BYOF policy. What would our "Food" be? Delivery pizza from Fornino. We weren't the only ones with this idea, either. Fornino is just a half-mile away, so they'll bring it right to the alley. Our four pies included: sausage, artichoke and tomato, mushrooms with truffle oil, and a basic Margherita. Sausage was first to go, and by far the crowd favorite. Truffles... More

How long do you leave your pizza out on the counter? Overnight? Longer? Not at all? Photograph by Robyn Lee As you may have seen already, Grub Street featured Serious Eats head honcho Ed Levine as the subject of its "New York Diet" column, in which a noted celeb or food person recounts his or her week's intake. Zach Brooks gives you links here to many of the places Ed mentions in the interview, but I'm more interested in what this diet snapshot reveals to the rest of the world about Ed's pizza practices. Get a loada this: And... More
