NYC is home to many top notch pizzerias. No, I'm not talking about the artisanal pizza slice. I'm talking about a greasy slice that you fold in half and dig in to. Pete's Pizza is certainly one of the better pizzerias on Bell Blvd. in Bayside, Queens.
Chicken Parmigiana Hero ($6.75)
But before we get on to the pizza, I started off with a chicken parm hero. The crusty bread was nicely toasted and airy within. The chicken is decent - moist, not dry. However, it was a bit bland, needing some spice or seasoning to punch it up. There is a pat of marinara amidst the cheese, but not enough to make this a stellar sandwich.
Cheese Slice ($2.30)
Now this is what I'm talking about. A crispy, buttery, thin crust enveloping greasy cheese and a salty, tangy tomato sauce. I could eat six of these non-stop.
French Fries ($3.50)
These were thin, crisply fried, and creamy within. They were also barely salted, which I appreciated.
Pete's Pizza is a typical NYC pizzeria, which is not a bad thing at all. They offer delicious slices at an affordable price - something that should be a mainstay of any big city.
