Queens Best Pizza: New Park Pizza in Howard Beach is hard to get to but worth the effort

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.

    The best regular slice in Queens, but you have to get in well done. Anytime your near JFK this place is must go.

    I’d put New Park Pizza up against any other pizza in NYC and Chicago. Best pizza around. By far. Thanks for giving them the shout out they deserve. They know who they are, they know what they do, and they do it better than anyone else. Sans any pretense.

    This pizza looks so simple. I prefer pizza with lots of toppings but based on the post and comments, this is a must try pizza. If only I lived nearby.

    New Park is horrendous.. it used to be good, but now it’s garbage. My wife is from Ozone Park and Howard Beach and i eat there a ton… Rosa’s has better pie.
