Feel like this 9.3 is the least celebrated of spots that have gotten 9+. And that lack of celebration of Lazzara is telling, as is the score on the app. I respect the uniqueness of this pizza. It's not like anything else I've had. It's a thin pan pizza with a high edge crust like a grandma but lighter with a unique sauce. King Umberto is the closest thing I can relate it to but that crust is more like an normal round pie crust, which I like better. Definitely a simmered and spiced, sauce here. I tend not to like that on pizza because simmering cuts out a lot of the acidity and it ends up tasting like a pasta sauce. That's what happened here. But it's not an Achilles's heel, for me. The crust is somewhere between thin crust and pan style. I'd prefer if it were more like a square cut thin with no high crust. Nice cheese to sauce ratio. Nothing big to complain about. Just not super up my alley, but good.

Good sauce and crust. Cheese was good but a bit oily. Owner wore proper-fitting t-shirt. Always a bonus these days.

Incredible sauce. Cheese was above average. Crust was crispy on outside and doughy in the middle. Wish that it had more of that crunch all the way around. Still, great pie, definitely would recommend.

Overall great pizza. Solid flavor, good sauce to cheese ratio. Loved it, but traditionally I don’t care for square pies. If it was a regular slice, it’d likely reach the 9 range.

Absurdly good but needs more cheese and less herbs in sauce.

Was a disappointment. Sweet sauces are fine but this was too sweet.

This was a disappointment. Anyone can have a bad day but this pizza was just plain bad. Not worth the trip. Not crispy, not much flavor. They must have known Dave was coming. Skip it.

Delicious pizza. Mediocre toppings. If you come here, get straight cheese. I’m really sad to see them ruin such a dynamite pizza with so-so meats.

Not the worst I’ve tasted but close. Have no clue what others see in this pie. Crust is nice, but, sauce is sickeningly sweet. Slab of mozzarella doesn’t help.

While the reviews of this pizza are perplexingly polarizing, one thing is certain: this is one of the most unique pies I have ever tried, truly original pizza. This is extremely rare thin crust square style pizza, very bar pie-like, not thick like Sicilian or Detroit style squares. As unique as this pizza looks, the taste is even more original. This is a “whole pie,” which is basically personal size, consisting of 6 total slices and costs a little over $20 with tax & tip…a bit overpriced considering the amount of pizza. While the crust is thin and crispy, the center of the dough is super soft and spongy. The dough is tasty enough but doesn’t have particularly great char on the undercarriage coming from an electric oven. Aside from the solid crunch in the crust, the rest of the dough has a microwaved frozen pizza taste and texture. The cheese is far too thick for such a thin pie, completely blanketing the surface of the pizza. Instead of a shredded blend, the cheese appears to be slices of mozzarella, not a very creamy or melty flow, with a handful of burn bubbles charred atop. Oddly sweet, the flavor of the cheese is incredibly unique, as if it were lightly glazed with honey. Combined with the dough and sauce, the cheese has a taste unlike any pizza cheese I’ve ever eaten. The sauce isn’t super sweet, nor is it too terribly bitter; somewhat savory with a touch of tang, the sauce isn’t particularly spicy but has just enough kick to have a presence to go along with a strange consistency. The texture of the sauce is that of heated ketchup, with fairly bizarre flavor to match. Everything about this pie is atypical and irregular; the taste, texture and style are all uniquely original. I’ve never seen or tried any pizza like this before. Despite a rectangular par pie feel, it has a disappointing frozen pizza taste. They should market this as “SpongeBob SquarePants frozen pizza” cause this is exactly how I imagine that pizza would taste. I’d say it’s worth a try because of its uniqueness but it’s not worth traveling long distances. Portnoy rated this pie in the early days of his New York reviews and backed himself into a corner with his ridiculous score after claiming this pizza would be the best in NYC before even trying it. Polarizing pizza for sure, with high scores clearly influenced by Portnoy’s 9.3 but trust the lower, more rational ratings and manage your expectations.
