5 Places to Find New York Pizza in Orange County

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.

LoL N.Y. pizza by the slice, the photo is of the Seal Beach location located on Main St. But there is also a location in Huntington Beach, where the locals like feeling better than anywhere else and call themselves Huntington Harbor, next to Trader Joes

I can't trust your reviews now because I went to D'Amores pizza on your review that it was top five best New York pizza in O.C. and it sucked the crust was good but the cheese was the half fat California garbage and the sauce was awful....

Why worry about where the pizza came from when the only thing that counts is price.  The winner:  Costco pizza.

What's the matter with the assholes who wrote this list? Oh, because Zitos is a small chain and not a perpetual financial failure it's disqualified? Because Zito's menu has California Pizza Kitchen features therefore it's extra large hand tossed thin crust mozzerella easy on the sauce pizza isn't New York by association? 4/5 of those places offer unevenly cooked pizzas with unevenly placed toppings with bubbles all over it. Oh, but it's run by people who will make sure it'll always be a financial failure so it gets approval by you asshole hipsters.

Ok Christopher Corey you are wrong as usual .....actually the best pizza on the west coast is NOT in OC it's in Santa Barbra so there mister west coast...... And the water does make a difference just ask any New Yorker

Christopher Corey

The water doesn't make a difference Curt Abbe, too small of a variable in the pizza process. It's biases that makes ny pizza "the best."

You need to visit Mammaluccos in Brea and then rethink your list.

@MJS562  I agree, why talk about the Huntington Beach location, then show the Seal Beach address on the accompanying map, so is the picture the Seal Beach or Huntington Beach location, so I know what to look for when I search for this place.
