Got My New York Slice at Pronto Pizza
So my pizza options seemed limitless until I realized that I’m in midtown Manhattan on the Saturday before Christmas. Has anyone experienced what that’s like? I’m now back at home fighting the sickness that was surely provided by the millions of tourists who were all up in my face. While perusing the Nintendo World Store, I felt the rumble of hunger growing stronger and I realized it was 2pm and that one piece of french toast at 8am just wasn’t enough.
48th street was where I spotted Pronto Pizza (it was within sight from the Nintendo store). Later I realized, just like there are a plethora of “Ray’s Pizza” joints, there is more than one Pronto Pizza.
But anyways, it’s cheap, it’s greasy, it’s served on a paper plate… it’s a New York slice. I’m no expert, but I assume this is your typical dime a dozen city pizza joints. I went with a basic cheese slice and a pepperoni.
Throw in a bottle of water and you’ve got lunch for under $10. Sure I was looking for recommendations and preferably a “must have” slice of New York pizza, it just wasn’t in the cards on this cold and overly crowded section of the busiest spot in the city (short walking distance from Times Square and Rockefellar Center). Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.
