To declare any one pizza establishment as the 'best' in New York is simply impossible. However, it would be hard to argue the West Village as the best place in New York to find a quality slice. Attracting the likes of local residents, university students, post-nightclub runoff, and tourists alike, these establishments have built their reputation by creating easy access to simple, great tasting pies. The only way to find which pizzeria is best suited to handle your cravings is to try them all, which is why our first NYC Food Crawl begins with the pizza edition.

All of these locations are walking distance from each other, so thrown on some stretchy pants, grab some friends, have a few drinks, and check out our guide to see which pizza restaurant will truly hit the spot.
