The Big Slice of Why: Unveiling the Magic of New York Pizza

January 15, 2024

There are several popular pizza styles that you’ll find when you visit pizzeria’s across America: thin crust, deep-dish, Detroit style, Chicago style, and more.

While each of those versions deserve their due, one can’t help but return to the same indomitable conclusion (as it pertains to pizza styles): NY Pizza is Always King.

Why is that, anyway? Continue reading to review why the New York style is the quintessential way to do pizza, and why Russo’s offers the best rendition of it in The Woodlands, Texas.


Primary Reasons NY Pizza is So Special

  • Closest to Old World Pizza - The NY version we make is the closest replica of the Neapolitan variety you would find in Italy. That’s one reason we have no problem calling what we make “authentic Italian” cuisine. 
  • Classic, Foldable, Thin-Crust Slices - These are the kind that let you grab total control of your pizza and eat it like a boss.
  • Oven-Baked to Perfection - Terrific pizza comes from cooking it at high temperatures to achieve that exquisite balance of crispy, but still malleable dough. Some NY-style pizza involves preparing it on an old-fashioned wood-burning or brick-oven stove. Either way, this isn’t the kind of product you slap together and toss in the microwave (unless you’re re-heating some leftovers).
  • No Shortage of Toppings (Traditional or Creative) - You can put almost anything on a NY-style pizza. Some will argue either for/against pineapple and other novelties. However, it’s truly up to the patron whether to go the novel route or stick with traditional items like Italian sausage, doppio pepperoni, roasted peppers, etc.

Russo’s: The Best NY Pizza in The Woodlands

Speaking of toppings and novelty pizzas, what are some other savory pizza selections you might find with us?

  • Mulberry™ - For all the meat lovers out there, this specialty selection has no less than four kinds: Pepperoni, Canadian Bacon, Crumbled Italian Sausage, and Beef.
  • Mediterranean Pizza - A heart-healthy choice that you’ll find under the “Pizza Bianca” section on our menu. It tastes great and capitalizes on wholesome whole foods like Roma Tomatoes, Fresh Spinach, and Russo’s special Wisconsin Mozzarella cheese.
  • Build-Your-Own Pizza - Are you unsure of what to get? Do you have to feed a handful of semi-picky eaters? That’s no problem because we also offer customizable options, which you can create, order, and then have us prepare and deliver to you.

Then, there’s a lot more where that came from . . . if you visit Russo’s New York Pizzeria - The Woodlands.
