Motorino in Brooklyn has the best pizza hands down. Was never impressed by pizza in Italy. My great grandmother who was from Naples always made pizza quite differently. She baked the dough first like you would for sacilian, and then slathered sauce and spices on the top. No cheese. Maybe just some parmagana sprinkled on top.

I can't speak to pizza in Italy, but pizza in Naples is a revelatory experience.

You would not believe the number of New Yorkers who make a point of hating Italian/Neapolitan pizza, usually without ever having actually tried it or understanding what they're eating--not that such applies to Patrick.

But this comment was particularly dumb as he's saying that the most Naples-inspired Napolitan pizza maker in NYC (Motorino, since UVPN moved to SF) is actually much better than the Napolitan pizza he is emulating.

If anyone told Palombino his pizza was better than anything you'd find in Italy, he'd laugh at you.

By the way, that puffy pizza in the OP looks very much like the pizza you'd find at Olio in the village. Can't eat too much of that though, it's very filling.

I've found many NYCers to be surprisingly provincial in their artistic and musical tastes.

I think you can get pretty decent Neapolitan pizza in the U.S.--but it's rarely appreciated very much. At it's best, it should be a simple thing made of very few, but very high-quality, ingredients. But nobody seems to know good mozarella from bad. In Naples, and in the best examples I've found in the U.S., you can smell the milkiness of the mozarella and it becomes creamy when melted, not rubbery.

A place near where I live has an excellent Neapolitan pizza with respect to all measures except for the crust, which is far too stiff. I tried a place in Atlanta with whnay that is recognized by some official Neapolitan pizza authority; the crust and sauce were awesome and dead-on, but the cheese didn't measure up. You can't have everything, I guess.

Another thing, I don't think anybody in Naples cuts their pizza. As we witnessed, you're supposed to tear at it. That wouldn't fly in middle America.
