A photo can only do so much justice to conveying the comfort food factor a pizza pie offers, especially this plain pie at New Park Pizza. This was my first stop after arriving at JFK Airport after 23 days in Japan and Australia and it was almost as comforting as the hug my Mom and Sister simultaneously grabbed me in 20 minutes earlier. Ask for it well done when you order and the unique brick oven (make sure to take a look at it) will torch up a pie for you in under 5 minutes. The crust is crispy and chewy and the sauce is sweet and thin and it all comes together with an abundance of mozzarella to form one of my favorite classic NYC style slices. Thanks to the inimitable Paulie Gee for the recommendation.
