My boyfriend's favorite pizza in New York city happens to be a place that we stumbled upon, literally, very late one night. I have to say this place is in my top 5 of New York pizza following behind: Lombardi's, Front Street Pizza, and Lazzo. Muzzarella is thin crust, generous sauce and toppings and conveniently close to home. Whether late night, or for the first meal on a weekend morning, this pizza is right on time. This place also has lasagna and a supposedly famous, but yet to be tried, foccacia. Personally, it is difficult to go and order anything other than pizza. Their white pizza, standard margarita and mushroom pizzas are all solid late night slice choices. We went to Muzzarella one recent morning for an early pizza lunch, next time I will try the other items on the menu!
