The Best Pizza in New York City

The OpenTable Team

The unofficial fashion capital of the nation, New York City's mantra is, "If you can make it here, you make it anywhere." The same holds true for the city's pizza scene, where turn-of-the-century Italian immigrants took this humble dish and turned it into a worldwide phenomenon. With slices available everywhere from the Staten Island Ferry terminal to the heart of Times Square, authentic pizza is part and parcel of what makes New York so unique. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. From wood-fired pies to foldable slices to those dressed with exotic ingredients, NYC has elevated the humble piece of pizza into an art form—and a cultural institution in its own right. In a city with a pizza shop on virtually every corner, diners will want to follow our list of some of the best pizza in NYC.
