5-Boro Pizza Tour – The Staten Island

The 5-Boro Pizza Tour sails again. Soon to the shores of Staten Island. An adventure, for sure. Many of us have little more experience than a Verrazano Bridge within the area. Soon a light will be shone on us 8 or 16. A pizza light.


We will sample a slice or 2 from each shop, ordering by the pie. Extensive research, networking and legwork has been done to find some of best and most intriguing pizza in NYC. Each tour will have a variety of styles and will last at least a few hours. Expect to make some new friends.

This is an ambitious tour, one not for the general public. But I am sure we can find enough freaks in this city of 10 million to satisfy a proper pizza eating group. This is not meant to be a feat of strength, we leave that to AYCE and IFOCE. This is a tour de pizza. Many of the places I haven’t been to (Staten Island and the Bronx), and I would be surprised if anyone has eaten at all of the pizzerias mentioned, even all the pizzas for one of the boroughs.

It will be hard to beat the experiences from Brooklyn, but I am confident this will be an eye-opening and utterly satisfying trip. Each tour thusfar has been fun and unique; I am excited to see what the Staten Island experience will be like. Will the pizza be as striving to perfection as Brooklyn showed? or serve excellent pies for the everyman such as Queens? What exactly IS Staten Island?

Transportation will be decided based on the responses we get for rides and locations. A possibility would be people meeting at locations where the cars are emanating from. For others, we can meet at the Staten Island Ferry drop off point. Let me know what is convenient for you and on Friday I will let everyone who is attending know the travel arrangements or the contact info of their transport. We should aim for 12:22 at the first location TBA (Maybe Tony’s Brick Oven).

Taking into consideration the tolls, drivers will pay nothing for pizza AND drinks.

Please let me know if you are planning on coming and if you intend to brings any guests. Let me know where you are coming from for the tour and if you intend to be a Driver. Our only limit on people is the amount of vehicles we have. Forward this to any freaks of pizza you know who you think would like to attend. If seats have to be limited (probably not) whoever attended previous tours will get 1st priority, as with all future tours.

We will end up with 5 or 6 outstanding pies for the tour. Check the pizza tour map for the latest status on the tour and future tours.
