Where to Eat Pizza Outdoors in NYC

Slice: New York

Pizza reviews in NYC.

When the weather really starts getting nice, pizza freaks want to get their pizza-freak on outdoors. Here are some spots to snag a slice under the sky.

This list hasn't changed much since last year's edition. Motorino Brooklyn comes off (it closed last summer, RIP), and Sottocasa, Pizza Moto, and Louie & Ernie's make their way on.

I would have added Roberta's mobile-trailer oven to this mix, but it doesn't have a fixed schedule (like Pizza Moto), but I do know it will be at the Frieze Art Fair on Randall's Island May 4 to 7.
