The Best Pizza in NYC is the Kind You Can Get Delivered — These Are Our Top Pies in New York
You know something’s good when its got its own Wikipedia page.
New York-style pizza, known for its big size, thin crust, and wide slices, somehow tastes best when eaten directly from a pizza delivery box. (You know we’re right.) And as NYC is the expert in pizza (Don’t worry Chicago — we love yours too), Postmates is the expert in getting that pizza into your hands.
So whether you’re chillin’ on your couch in your living room (that’s also your kitchen), or just posting up with friends at an LES bar when you start to get hungry, hit Postmates up for a slice. We deliver the best of the best to you… wherever you may be. Here are a few recommendations to get you started:
We can’t talk about NYC pizza without mentioning Joe’s. It’s iconic. It’s simple. Thus, it’s first on our list. Never has a plain cheese pizza inspired such awe — from the texture of the crust to the expert level of cheesiness to the perfect acidity of the sauce, you have to experience it for yourself. And lucky for you — Postmates can help you with that.
Some say Bleecker Street Pizza is the best in NYC — we say: You’ve gotta make that call yourself. So when you do, postmate a Nonna Maria Pizza — it’s their specialty, coming with a thin crust, fresh mozzarella, homemade marinara sauce, the finest Parmesan, and fresh basil. It’s an old family recipe of theirs, and once you try it, you’ll understand why it’s been on the menu ever since.
If you haven’t yet tried the signature Artichoke Pizza from Artichoke Basille’s, you must not be a native New Yorker. The crème de la crème, Artichoke Pizza comes with artichoke hearts, spinach, cream sauce, mozzarella, and pecorino Romano cheese. It’s exactly as decadent as it sounds, so plan for more than one — no, more than two — slices. Just trust us.
There’s a lot of good char going on with these coal oven pizzas. But beyond that, you can top ’em off with everything from sausage to broccoli to eggplant — even anchovies. The Arturo’s Fiesta pizza, featuring sausage, mushrooms, peppers, and onions, is a Postmates fave, but one look at the menu will tell you: The options are endless. Case in point? You can order lobster as a pizza topping. Now that’s a money move.
Some people stand in line for Roberta’s pizza — but not you. Not when you order Roberta’s from Postmates. We like Roberta’s because they get creative with their pizzas — both in topping and name. But our favorite pizza of all? The Bee Sting Pizza — tomato, mozzarella, sopressata, chili flakes, chili oil, and honey. The chili stings, but the honey’s sweet. Best of both worlds.
While pizza’s not the only thing on the menu at Olio e Piú, it could be. Their handmade pies come straight out of a wood-brick oven and feature a base of red sauce or white sauce (both are bomb). If indulgence is the name of your game, skip right to the Nostrana — ricotta mozzarella, prosciutto di Parma, and truffle oil. Pro tip: If you’re gluten-free, use the “Special Instructions” option to custom order your pizza with a gluten-free crust. It costs $2 more, but it’s worth it.
Are you ordering for one or two? Ribalta’s menu caters to both — and like Olio e Piú, they have Pizza Napoletana Bianca (White) and Pizza Napoletana Rossa (Red). Cheese-lovers in the house will dig the 4 Formaggi pie, which features mozzarella, provolone, gorgonzola, parmigiano reggiano, AND honey. Vegetarians will go wild for the Verdure — eggplants, pepper, zucchini, radicchio, and mozzarella. Picky eaters and foodies alike: Go ham with an order from Ribalta.
