The wedding is booked, the dress is bought – we deserve to eat like fat asses. This past Friday we decided to hang out in the apartment, due to the mild 9 Degree weather. While watching Better Call Saul we were determined to order pizza – just didn’t know from where. We were between Toby’s, Rubirosa (would of had to pick up), Piacere, Prince Street, or L’asso. The Struggle is Real. After debating the choices, and personifying the issue of First World Problems, we mutually agreed we watched a Sicilian Pie (Square to all you non New Yorkers).
When getting a square pie in Manhattan, I really think there is no better place to get it than Prince Street Pizza. I came across this gem when one of my traders who used to live in Noho said to me in disgust “You have never been to Prince Street?” I have now reformed my ways, and have been there/ordered about 10 times. The truth is, once you crave a square pie – there is no chance of not getting one. Additionally, everyone is looking to make the perfect round pie – that everyone over looks the square. That is not the case at Prince Street. They even refer to themselves as the home of ‘The Original Soho Square Pie.’
The last time we went there it was 11:00 on a Saturday night, drunk from a friends’ all you can eat sushi / all you can drink sake parties. After going out, we Irish exited to make it to Prince Street in time. I definitely over ordered for the two of us, but once we got back to the apartment we were in pizza heaven. This Friday, I some how over ordered again (surprise) and we wound up ordering 2 Prince Street Perfection slices, 2 Mercer Margherita slices, and 3 Spicy Spring slices. Also, felt the need to order two orders of Prosciutto Rice Balls, with two dipping sauces of pesto and vodka. I did try to order the Broadway Breadcrumb but they were sold out, which is the second time this happened, starting to feel like it’s not meant to be. When it was all said and done, the only thing that was left over was two slices and an overwhelming feeling that I should really start this wedding diet. The next morning when I left my room to goto the bathroom, Nicole found me sitting on my kitchen cabinet stuffing the remains of the Mercer Margherita down my gullet – it was not my finest moment.
Below are a few of the items I highly suggest. You will notice it is pretty much the whole menu, with the exception of the round pie – which one day I will try.
Prince Perfection Pie signature square. fresh mozzarella cheese and our secret sauce.
Mercer Margherita Pie thin crust. fresh mozzarella cheese, basil and marinara sauce.
Spicy Spring Pie fra diavalo sauce, spicy soppressata and fresh mozzarella cheese.
Stuffed Prosciutto Balls ricotta & mozzarella cheeses and prosciutto.
