Mmmm.. Pizza

Coastal rivalry aside, Californians will admit, for the sake of pizza, that New York pies deserve the hype (We're not conceding though. We'd rather have a California pizza than a New York burrito any day).

A real pizza pie, as New Yorkers call it, should be around 18 inches in diameter, thin-crusted, greasy enough to induce a little guilt, and must have the perfect amount of burnt cheese, or 'bubbles,' atop sauce and dough. Though it's safe to say no Californian joint could ever produce an authentic NY slice, many come close.

Interested in grabbing a New York slice? I suggest you head onto the 405.

1. Giant Manhattan Pizza (Anaheim)

Fold it!

New Yorkers eat their slices folded in half, so pies need be wide. As its name promises, Giant Manhattan Pizza takes portion size very seriously. You want big pizza? Giant Manhattan Pizza will give you gargantuan pizza. If you thought New York pies were already pushing it in the size department, try Giant Manhattan Pizza's 30 diameter pie. How many times can you fold that.

2. A Slice of NY Pizza (Huntington Beach)

A sight for hungry eyes

If you're driving down Pacific Coast Highway and are suddenly hit with a desperate urge for pizza pie, then a stop at A Slice of New York Pizza would be smart. As its name suggests, A Slice of New York Pizza sells by the slice, just like in New York. Plus, it's affordable: with $6.75, you get two large slices and a soda.

Not only does A Slice of New York Pizza get the basics right, but it's also full of P.D.A. for the Big Apple. Its walls are covered with photos of the New York Yankees and Jets (Ain't it supposed to be Mets and Jets?), so New Yorkers, do feel welcome.

The only one from this list I have tried is D'Amores pizza and it was horrible it wasn't even close to NY pizza, Not only that but it was just bad...The only thing that was decent was the crust the sauce and the cheese were awful.

There's only three or four coal fired pizzerias left in New York, and there's plenty of New York pizza that doesn't come from coal ovens.

Don't think they will have coal fired because of SCAQMD & i doubt they are shipping in NYC Water, if they don't have either it will not be the same.
