We've already written about Pizza Roma, the first American outpost of a Barcelona-based chain, on Bleecker Street. As of a few weeks ago, their square slices are now sold at the pizza station of New York's Whole Foods on the Bowery.
'Pizza Roma' on Serious Eats
There is no such thing as Italian pizza. We're seeing a LOT of Neapolitan representation these days, but if New York is any indication, I'd say it's time to brush up on your Julius Caesar and prepare for a visit from the Roman pizza army.
The area around Bleecker Street, between Sixth and Seventh, is already so crowded with pizzerias (some excellent) that it doesn't seem like a new one would add much to the neighborhood. But Pizza Roma, the first American outpost of a Barcelona-based chain, serves something quite different: thin-crusted Roman square slices.
Pizza Roma, as the name implies, serves Roman-style pizza — long, rectangular pies, cooked in pans, whose crusts are thicker, crisper, chewier than their round, wood-fired Neapolitan counterparts.
