Pizza Bash NYC: "Maybe I'd check out Pizza Bash Toronto or Pizza Bash Kyoto, but this place is not worth it."
Okay, listen up: don't bother with this place. Pizza Bash NYC is a worthless "brick oven" shithole that is not worth your time or money. I don't have much to say about it, because there's not much going on here. You probably already know that I am distrustful of a New York pizza shop that has to say "New York" or "NYC" or some variant in the name, because it pretty much ensures that the people who run it are not New Yorkers and have no idea what they're doing. The exception being I Love New York Pizza, which is awesome. Of course, we both know it's the exceptions that prove the rules.
For starters, this is a crappy margherita slice and not a New York slice. It is on record in various places (notably my reviews of Little Luzzos and Brick Oven Pizza on 44th St) that I am totally content and happy with a good margherita slice, and that I am willing to pay extra for the quality ingredients and higher level of mastery in the preparation, though the latter is a highly arguable point that I'm not even sure if I agree with. However, this place simply falls way short. It's just not good. As with any margherita slice, this one was mostly sauce. However, the sauce was utterly and totally disgusting. This slice was too flimsy, even for brick oven, and what little cheese there was tasted like total garbage.
I think this screenshot from the Pizza Bash website says more about the joint than I ever could:

I just ate there today. I wish I read your review before I went there. Its was so thin it fell apart when I picked it up. Even my two year old spit it out and said it was gross. Completely lame garbage. $3 a slice to boot.ReplyDelete
