"My friend just found out some really tragic news... And I knew she wouldn't want to have to cook her family dinner. I scheduled a pizza delivery for their house and in the "special instructions" section requested that they write a bible verse of my choosing on each box. They went way beyond my wishes and hand wrote the entire verse out on the box. Not only does Venezia's make outstanding pizza, they're outstanding people. Thank you Venezia's, we'll continue to be your loyal customers." Jennie I.

Who We Are and Why You'll Love Us

What is New York style pizza? Frank and Clara Montanile lived in New York City for over 10 years, and it was there that they learned exactly what a New York style pizza should taste like. A New York style pizza is made by hand (not machine rolled) and is on the thinner side compared to a “normal” pizza. The crust should be minimal and it should not be too large. A true New York style pizza will serve huge slices that consists of a 20” pizza or larger. The slice has to be large enough so you can fold it when taking a bite. NY Style Pizzerias also use whole milk mozzarella cheese.

What is the Party Pizza Challenge? The Party Pizza Challenge is a contest where two individuals purchase a 24” Party Pizza with as little or as many toppings as they wish. Once the pizza is brought to the table, they have one hour to completely finish the entire pizza—including the crust. If they achieve their goal, they each get a Party Challenge Venezia’s Shirt and a polaroid photo that goes on our Wall of Fame. There’s no extra awards for anyone who decides to try to accomplish this challenge solo.

The History of New York Style Pizza

After you have had a slice of Venezia’s Pizza you may have thought that Venezia’s Pizzeria invented New York Style Pizza. What you must know! New York-style pizza is a style of pizza characterized by large hand-tossed thin-crust pies, often sold in wide slices to go, 24-inch Party Pizza’s as Venezias calls them. It has a crust which is crisp along its edge yet soft and pliable enough beneath its toppings to be folded in half to eat, this style evolved in the U.S. from a type that originated in New York City in the early 1900s.

New York-style pizza is traditionally hand-tossed, consisting in its basic form of a light layer of tomato sauce and dry, grated, full-fat mozzarella cheese; additional toppings are placed atop the cheese. Pies are typically around 18 inches (45 cm) in diameter, although Venezias has 24-inch pizzas that the slices are cut from. These large wide slices are often eaten while folded in half from the crust, as their flexibility sometimes makes them unwieldy to eat flat. Folding the slice also allows it to be eaten with one hand.

New York-style pizza gets its distinguishing crust from the high-gluten bread flour with which it is made, although Venezia’s Pizzeria has gluten-free pizza available. Typical condiments include dried oregano, dried basil, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and dried red chili pepper flakes.
