Corner Slice: fantastic grandma pizza

Corner Slice is making a grandma-style pizza using Central Milling flour (a Utah-based artisanal mill whose flours are considered among the best by many bakers and pizza-makers). They do long fermentations at about 80% hydration, parbaking the crusts to yield a crunchy-chewy texture. The crust flavor is excellent, and the crispness is on point. I love the bubbly crust.

Rizzo’s: Fine pizza in Astoria and on the LES

Rizzo’s Fine Pizza serves what it calls a “thin-crust Sicilian.” Sometimes it seems closer to a grandma-style pizza, but I’m not going to quibble. Bottom line is it’s a unique and delicious slice.
