NYC's Best Sicilian Slice, Explained | Food Skills

  • Published on Apr 17, 2017
  • Though it hasn't been around for as long as New York's O.G. pizzerias, Prince Street Pizza has quickly made its mark by serving one of the city's-if not the world's-great square slices. In this episode of Food Skills, Prince Street's Dominic Morano breaks down the elements of this iconic Sicilian slice, including the puckered cups of natural-casing pepperoni that make it one of New York's most recognizable Instagram stars.

    So, is there olive oil sprinkled on top of it to keep it from burning at 900 degrees? Is that why that is the way that it is?

    Your pops would beat you for lying on camera like that. The grease is grease, not olive oil. It's spose to be that way. Maybe Johnny and the boys need to pay you a visit.

    Why the hell we real sicilians should put "salame" on a pizza? It's not at all typicall fella!!! If I should think of real trditional sicilian pizza it would be a NORMA for east and SFINCIONE for west. Norma = Tomato sauce, Mozzarella, Fried aubergines and salted ricotta cheese. Sfincione = Thicker paste, tomato sauce mixed with pecorino dried cheese and anchovies and spring onions.
    If I were a Pizza maker in NYC I would probably propose my "sicilian pizza" as follows: Tomato sauce made from cherrie tomatoes, Spiecy fresh Tuma Cheese, Black underOil olives (the big ones) and spring onions ... not sure it will encounter the likes of new yorkers but that should taste closer to sicily :)

    I love this pizza. But how was he going to say that oil inside the pepperoni is all of oil. They put the oil underneath as you guys could see and the stuff inside the pepperoni is always the oil from the meat and that is Grease

    its not olive oil, its fat. the little white parts in pepperoni/salami are fat. that's what makes it good. aside from that, olive oil is pure fat. it IS grease. it does have some health benefits, but too much ends up causing more harm than good. that being said... the pizza looks great.

    that isn't olive oil - it's fat that renders from the pepperoni during the baking. it's delicious, but it's obscenely unhealthy, and this guy is lying to his customers.

    I hope when I come to your place there is a separate person who was touching the money, there isn’t nothing more offensive when you walk into a pizzeria and the same person that’s touching your pizza is also taking the payment disgusting!

    "special cut italian pepperoni" As a europeen I found this funny as pepperoni is an American variety of salami.
    Maybe not so authentic italian after all.

    I promise you people, the ingredients he uses can even be fine but here in Italy that pizza is absolutely nasty "fast food" pizza. Is greasy and heavy, even the best pepperoni is a low quality meat, like hotdogs, is left overs full of spices and salt. That mozzarella is not even mozzarella, is cagliata, nothing to do with real mozzarella. The rest is dough and tomato, is decent. Is ok for people who smoked some pot and need to fill their face up. XD

      I just watched a video on youtube "The pizza show Rome" where the Italians were saying the pizza there sucked until 15-20 years ago. Everyone was using cheap ingredients. So please get off your high horse and stop talking all of that bull shit.
