No matter how you slice it, pizza is one of the most satisfying foods on the planet. Just ask the millions of New York City strong who enjoy getting a slice to go. In Manhattan alone, there are 362 local pizza restaurants, according to an item in the NewYorkDailyNews.
Most of these pizza parlors serve up slices from a round pie with thinner crust, because that’s been the longtime tradition. Watch out, folks, because things are about to change in 2017. That’s right; NYC is turning square, but in a grande way.
Don’t be afraid of the dimensions, ladies and gentlemen. The square slice will feature thicker dough, heartier toppings and a deeper gastronomical satisfaction.
Square pizza is the trendy food item of the new year in New York City. You won’t have to worry about all the good stuff sagging from your slice, because you won’t even have to fold your pie. Square pizza has a sturdy form with nice crispy edges.
The culinary landscape has begun to change in the pizza world, taking us all back to our youth, when square masterpieces full of molten cheese and sauce were a thing of beauty in school cafeterias.
BonAppetit says the trend is on and stretching across the country.
In New York City, pizza lovers can go square at eateries like Scarr’s Pizza on Orchard Street, where an 18 inch by 12 inch pizza will run you $26. There is Brooklyn’s Williamsburg Pizza, which offers classic NY slices at $2.50. Some folks prefer the square kale-sausage-and-Taleggio slice, where vintage meets edgy.
Emmy-Squared in Brooklyn also serves it up hot and non-circular. The restaurant is big on Detroit-style pizza, and residents love the crisp square pies with the yummy, springy dough.
Go on, America; get square.
