Apologies for Dave Portnoy’s voice as my son was watching his video of the place as the owner Sal came out to play Jingle Bells on his sax for the kids. Delicious pizza, super fresh ingredients, but the main reason to go is for the place and the owner - places like this make NYC the city that it is.

Great slice, I’ve been to pugsleys twice now and it is fair to say that they are fairly consistent with their pizza. It has had a good flavor of sauce, minimal grease, delicious cheese, good crust with a slight char. Overall my favorite pizza on Fordham Road.

Cheese slice: decent sauce, although very standard; below-average cheese, but made well; standard dough and decent crisp, but nothing special; could be more crispy, both on bottom and on crust; a satisfying slice, but I wouldn’t say it’s unique or exemplary in any way

Good crust, little flop, not too greasy. Just can’t get to over 8

Great flavor here. Would be much better if there was more sauce.

Perfect flop and crisp, but cheese and sauce is a tad bland. Still a great neighborhood spot

All quality ingredients, lots of dough, not enough sauce and cheese. Bottom cooked well done, which is nice

I'm with dave on this one..spot on review. Quality ingredients go into this pizza. What we are all missing is the homeade garlic and hot green pepper oil the owner makes. Put that on the pizza and its a game changer. 8.5 with the hot oil on it. But overall good pizza.

Alright Frankie, we got a banger of a slice here today. Crust is very crispy and there’s no New York flop present here. Cheese melts in your mouth. Not too greasy either. My favorite number is 8 so we’re going dual 8’s with an 8.8 rating. If you haven’t been here yet put it on the list. Prez ain’t disappoint with his score.

Sal didn’t have any more pies left for slices so he made me one, but by the time I got to eat this slice it was cold, full disclosure. Sal threw this bad boy in the oven and went into the lobby to play the saxophone for some kids who had just finished dinner. Sax 10/10. Pizza is thin and crispy, not oily at all and has very flavorful sauce. The ambiance is raw and old in this hideaway pizza shoppe. If you’re at the zoo or nearby, this is a mandatory stop!!!!!
