The Perfect White Pizza, According to Frank Pinello | Food Skills

  • Published on Jun 12, 2017
  • Growing up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, The Pizza Show's Frank Pinello often had to choose between three classic slices: the Sicilian-style square, the regular NYC slice, and the enigmatic white pizza. As an adult, the white pie has captured Pinello's imagination and become a favorite among his customers at Best Pizza in Williamsburg. Topped with ricotta, mozzarella, caramelized onions, and parsley, the dish pushes NYC pizza past the old standard of red sauce and orange grease. Packed with flavor and perennially underrated, Best Pizza's white pie deserves to be on every slice lover's bucket list.

    Look. I've loved this channel. I supported every single thing you have done. I've always watched you without questioning anything but i can not overlook this disgusting racist video. The fact you decided to keep all the colors out of your pizza shows me your not okay with other races in your pizzeria. I've always suspected people didn't welcome me or other dark skinned people into your pizzeria and this pizza is the first thing to confirm that for me. I'm sorry but i think i need to unsubscribe from you all. I cant overlook racism

    I know Pinello's reputation, but if I'm paying 3.50+ for a plain slice it better require two plates minimum. Thing barely even hangs over the side. AND GET THAT BAY LEAF OFF THERE

    I get over to the neighborhood in Williamsburg by Best pretty often so I tried it. It was decent, though I just don't like ricotta, so sadly, the white pie is not for me. It was a bit expensive but for hand-crafted with high quality ingredients, about what you'd expect. He's not kidding about the block. It's the one they have Williamsburg's Feast of San Gennaro.
    If you want a good dollar slice go to a Two Brothers (several in Manhattan) where they turn the pizzas over fast so you'll be getting a really fresh slice. $3 gets you two slices and a can of soda.

    Not my cup of tea, I just can't tolerate the taste. However if other's like it that's cool, I'm not gonna be one of those bigoted morons that can't accept other's opinions. But NYC pizza is by far the best (other than a traditional Napoli pizza that is)
