Featured Pizzerias @ The Village Voice Choice Eats

The Village Voice Choice Eats is always one of the most anticipated food events in New York City each year. And although there is normally not pizza served there (as participating restaurants don’t have access to kitchens… or pizza ovens!) there is always some good representation from pizzerias.

Pete Zaaz (766 Classon Ave) featured their twice baked potato skins which they described as baked potato pizza inside of an egg roll. I haven’t made it out to their spot in Bed-Stuy yet, but you can be sure I’ll be trying their actual potato pizza featuring creme fraiche, white cheddar, and applewood smoked bacon.

One of the most delicious things I ate all night was from the folks from Rubirosa (235 Mulberry Street) — a Italian restaurant in Nolita which is know both for their pizzas and pasta. They were serving a “Braciole” tortelli containing roasted garlic and herb croutons. At the restaurant itself, they serve Grandma’s Braciole as an appetizer ($12) which features braised beef, garlic bread, and tomato. If it’s even half as good as the version they served at Choice Eats, it’s a winner in my book.

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.
