Mima's. Next to Uncle Giuseppe's Supermarket, who also sells pizza, if you're looking for a crunchy thin crust above everything else, this might be the pizza for you. For me, it lacked flavor. Downtown, center of Yorktown is strip mall hell. So you have so many pizza options: Mima's, Uncle Giuseppe's Supermarket (unlisted on OneBite), Maria's, Oscar's (also unlisted), Yorktown Pizza and Pasta, Nonna's, Furci's, even Domino's all within walking distance that you'll feel you need to drive anyway. It's your pick. From the pics, I chose Maria's and Mima's today. They're menu look damn near identical. But their pizzas are distinct. First off, there's semolina on the crust. I appreciate that. That's a Full Moon (Arthur Avenue) move. It makes them distinct. The slices are similarly wide too. They sell lots of specialty slices. It's a *crunchy* crust. I know lots of people like that. Thin though not untra thin, the whole way through with a small cornicione. To be clear, this *crunch* is not crisp, it's a hard crunch especially toward the back. As opposed to the leaparding char (and pillowy rise) I got on the bottom of Grandma's Wood Fired Pizza up 202, this was a consistently dark brown crust all over the bottom. I liked that, along with the semolina. No flop. What I didn't like was on the top and towards the end crust. It was just…flavorless. Slice look like it had dried out and had been sitting there as soon as I looked at it. Mozzerella was greasy as hell. That's another tell-tale sign of a slice sitting out too long. In these situations, I try to think what it might taste like fresh but it's hard to. It doesn't help that plain slice here is now just under $4. I'm having a hard time describing the taste of the low moisture mozzerella and the sauce, which had the typical loose consistently. They were light on both. And that's fine by me, but it's a sin that they lacked any flavor. This is one of those pies that was constructed well. It holds up, no flop, well baked, is fairly distinguished with a semolina crust, and it's distinctly crunchy. But it's just let down by not being fresh, so it's hard to judge conclusively. Like I started in this review, I think people who love crunchy, thin pizza with little aeration and light on cheese and sauce, might consider this a solid neighborhood pizza option. There's no doubt it'd be better fresh. But I can't imagine it being dramatically better in flavor fresh. It needs to be better seasoned. So I have to score what I have…

This review is for the cheese slice. Close to no flop. Not very greasy. Thin sliced. Crunchy crust. The sauce needs a bit more flavor.

Great crust. Quality cheese. One of the better for this area, easily.

Thin crust, little bit of flop, not too much grease, sauce slightly sweet. 4 different slices each had a good flavor and unique twist. Would definitely go there again!

Pizza was really good but staff was slow and a little rude that takes 0.5 off the rating the pizza alone was a 7.6

Served fast with zero flop and very hot. There was very little cheese and sauce. The cheese tasted like it was very low quality. The sauce was forgettable with no tang. The dough was ok but it needs more salt. The crust was tough to chew and felt overworked. Halfway through I wanted to ask to have the slice cooked more. This was well below average.

Good crunchy pizza slices and big too.Not overwhelming with cheese and sauce which makes it not sloppy to eat. I would like to taste a little more flavor but still a good slice.

Nice flop, cheese is solid. Crust and sauce are unremarkable. Overall decent football pizza.
