A Slice of NY Pizza in Springville

Do me a favor. Skip reading this article and just get yourself over to A Slice of NY Pizza in Springville instead. Trust me–the food will speak for itself. This gooey, cheesy, savory goodness is all but too difficult to describe with words, but let me see if I can paint a picture of what your experience might be like going in.

When you walk in, you’re greeted by around nine fully prepared specialty New York pizzas, each one perfectly crafted down to the bite. Not too many toppings, and definitely not too few. Options range from a mozzarella chicken pizza to a southern style with barbecue sauce, pulled pork olives, and onions, to a classic pepperoni with dozens of smaller pepperoni slices, and their garlic knots are way too good to pass up as well. Each slice is rebaked in their pizza oven to order, and pizza is sold by the slice, just as if you’re walking right into one of the hundred corner pizza shops in New York. And trust me when I say the quality here is top notch and just as good if not better than anything you’d find on the street in New York City itself. The owner, Chris, is a big time New Yorker, and when he came to Utah with his wife and realized there wasn’t anything like the kind of classic New York pizza he could get back home, he was never quite satisfied until he opened up a store of his own.

Like many New Yorkers, he takes his pizza seriously, and that’s something that comes across very clearly in the pizza served at his restaurant.

I’ll be honest. One of my favorite things about trying out new restaurants and learning more about them is getting to experience the passion and culture of individuals who take the sometimes mundane experience of eating a meal and transform it into a small taste of someone else’s life and the deep love they have both for the craft of cooking and their desire to share their own culture and heritage. It’s amazing talking to restaurant owners and managers who just love what they do and are there for the right reasons, and I would say that A Slice of NY Pizza is definitely one of those places. I’ve been dying to try them ever since they opened just under a year ago, and all the hype was worth it for me when I split my first box of pizza. It’s an experience that is just really difficult to replicate, and they get it spot on, every time.

This is one of the restaurants that is relatively new on my radar, so I haven’t been able to talk with the owners yet and figure out a coupon that you can use, but I’ll make sure to add one in a later issue when I can!

I hope you have some time this coming month to drop in and grab yourself a slice or two when you’re in the area and try what this awesome little place has to offer. I promise you’ll find it well worth the journey.
