We are very fortunate in La Antigua Guatemala because, besides the fast-food pizzas, we can also get true and authentic Italian and Argentine pizza. The latest addition to the pizza menu is the Giant New York style pizza slices.
Since I have been to New York City a few times and I have tried pizza slices at different venues there, the only thing I can say about these pizza slices is that they are as big as the NYC style pizza. The crust is too thin, thinner than anything I had tried in New York, but tasty nonetheless.
Until the next time I visit Manhattan, these giant pizza slices prepared here in Antigua Guatemala would have to do. Of course, once you put cobanero crushed peppers and additional freshly-grated mozzarella cheese, these pizza slices very delicious, although a bit expensive at Q20/$2.25 to Q30/$3.75 per slice.
By the way, my absolute favourite New York style pizza I had at Ray’s Pizza on the corner of Saint Marks Hotel, a busy little street full of Asian restaurants and the Papaya hot dogs and Pizza parlour from NYC. Check out my Life in Pictures post about these slices from Ray’s Pizza to see the photographs.
