New York is a city of a thousand pizza styles. We've got Neapolitan, Sicilian, deep-dish Chicago, franchise, neighborhood, DiFara's, bakery-style, true Naples, pasta-covered slices, coal oven, wood oven, brick oven, bagel pizzas -- the list goes on and on. Now a new pizza style has been sighted, and is it good!

New Pizza Style Sighted in Manhattan

Birdbath Bakery, supposedly the city's first "green" bakery (made of recycled materials, etc.) has come up with a pizza based, not on the usual yeast- or sourdough-risen crust, but with a flaky puff pastry crust. The crust renders brittle and oily, and tastes fantastic. The pizza shown above ($5) is flooded with good mozzarella and nicely herbed, and the flavor is rich enough that one small pie is enough. A spinach and goat cheese version is also available. Two locations: 223 First Avenue, East Village, 646-722-6565; 145 Seventh Avenue, West Village, 646-722-6570
