The contemporary pizza consumer is pretty well-versed in the language of Neapolitan pizza. We know what a wood-fired brick oven looks like, we appreciate San Marzano tomatoes and we've tasted mozzarella di bufala. We even know where to go in Naples for the most historic pizzerias on the planet. But what about other pizza styles that bare Italian pedigrees?
'Famous Ben's Pizza of Soho' on Serious Eats
Today's Daily Slice is a two-fer. Aren't you lucky? I just couldn't visit one Ben without also visiting the other. So here we're putting Famous Ben's Pizza of Soho (Spring Street) head to head with Ben's Pizzeria on West 3rd and MacDougal. Over the years I've been blabbing on Slice, I've had people recommend one of them consistently over the other. Until yesterday I couldn't remember which one that was. And you know what? I still don't. But I now know which one I like more.
