The Sicilian at John's Pizzeria tastes much lighter than others around town―probably due to the many micro-air bubbles within its crust.
'Elmhurst' on Serious Eats
There are only a handful of celebrated slices in Queens. Why is that? I don't know. Maybe it's that the borough is more residential than most and good slices tend to pop on a local level rather than citywide. One Queens sleeper that's slowly gaining some larger buzz, though, is John's Pizzeria in Elmhurst, where the classic plain slice is satisfying, comforting stuff.
Apart from Singas, this is probably the most well-known pizza in Elmhurst (there's also a location in Jackson Heights). It's worth trying if you haven't and if you're nearby (it's not worth a special trip). Beware, though. It's the (daily) slice that keeps on giving.
Many toppings available. Triggers a Proustian reaction from those who grew up on it but fun stuff even for people discovering it as an adult.
