New Yorkers tend to be a little opinionated about pizza, even when it comes to the legacy of $1 slices. So expect nothing less than the world's finest at this epic throwdown on Crescent Avenue, just near the Bronx's own Little Italy.
The second annual edition of the festival features 25 US and five Italian pizza masters, among them Brooklyn favorites Di Fara Pizza and Best Pizza. Pizza makers from around the country will be on hand to prove that it's possible to get a good pie outside of the Tri-State. Las Vegas' Good Pie will be bringing their coveted Grandma pizza, and Chicago's Forno Rosso will show that the Windy City offers more than just deep dish.
A trio of pizza makers from Naples—Brandi, Trianon and Rossopomodoro—will give eaters a taste of how things are done back in the Old Country.
This two-day fest is not to be confused with 2017's New York City Pizza Festival, which left many guests asking for refunds after they had to face long lines and cold slices.
Of course, you can count on plenty of beer and wine to wash it down and live bands to entertain you between slices. Now that's amore.
