The Most Anticipated NYC Pizza Openings Of 2012

Last month I took a look back at some of the best pizza I ate in New York City in 2011. Now it’s time to look forward to a few notable openings this year. Although some people might think the New York City pizza market is over-saturated, there are a number notable spots that will be opening their doors in early 2012. I have extremely high expectations for all of these places. And here’s why:

3) VIA TRIBUNALI – Ludlow Street & Rivington Street

In 2009, I stopped by this Neapolitan spot in Seattle’s Capital Hill district and loved the pies there (Via Tribunali: Stellar Pizza In Seattle, Washington). So it goes without saying that I was excited when an e-mail landed in my Inbox back in November from owner Elizabeth Werner announcing that they’d be opening a New York outpost on the Lower East Side.

2) NICOLLETTA – 2nd Avenue & 10th Street

Michelin star chef Michael White has made his mark on New York City with restaurants like Marea, Osteria Morini and Ai Fiori. In early 2012 he’ll be making his first foray into pizza with this East Village spot. Don’t expect traditional Neapolitan pies to be served. He recently told GrubStreet that the pizza would be “crispy, chewy, not too thick and not too thin.” Whatever the style is, I’m sure it will be delicious.

1) DON ANTONIO – West 50th Street & 9th Avenue

During my trip to Italy last year I ate a lot of good pizza. But there was one spot that absolutely blew my mind: Pizzeria Starita in Naples. In just a few weeks you won’t have to travel all the way to Italy to eat the incredible pies they serve. Owner and pizza maker Anotonia Starita is teaming up with Keste’s Roberto Caporuscio to open a pizzeria in Hell’s Kitchen. With such an all-star cast on board, anything less than spectacular selection of pies will be disapointing.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
