Best Bronx coal-oven pizza (2008)


Bronx has always lagged behind Brooklyn and Manhattan in pizza of the old-fashioned sort, made in a coal oven rather than a gas-burning Bari. That was before the proprietor of TOSCA discovered an ex-bakery in Throg's Neck with the coal oven still intact and set about imitating the pizza masters like Giovanni Lombardi, who invented the thin-crust, cheesy, and charred style that became American pizza.
