Razza, which is only a seven-minute ride away from the World Trade Center via the PATH train, “excels at both dough and toppings” wrote Wells in his review of the restaurant. Wells visited the Jersey pizza parlor recently along with fellow food writer Ed Levine and confessed to being a longtime fan. “Even if Ed and I had learned … that the kitchen had run out of cheese, tomatoes and the rest,” Wells wrote, “I would have asked for a pizza dressed with nothing but olive oil.”
New York Twitter is not taking too kindly to Wells’ rave review.
“The only way the best New York pizza could be found in Jersey is if a pie floated across the river from @difara,” former entertainment editor of the NY Daily News Ethan Sacks tweeted, shouting out Di Fara Pizza as the best pie in New York.
“No, @_PeteWells ,” tweeted Twitter user Herbertholler. “The best #pizza in #NewYork is not in #NewJersey . It is in Yonkers. And CT. It's name is @pepespizzeria . GET IT RIGHT.”
Other Twitter users preferred to respond to the tweet with short and firm disapproval.
“NO,” tweeted Alex Simon.
“Trigger warning jeez,” replied @Cassidyfein.
You may have your own opinion on the best pizza in New York, but here are the Daily Meal’s takes on the best pizza in every state.
