New York Pizza
5615 PW Eindhoven
I have tried
pizza in the Netherlands before. And while I enjoyed them, they weren't truly been pizza as I know it. For starters,
none of the pizza I previously had gave the option of pepperoni as a topping, so they weren't starting out on the right
foot to begin with. Pepperoni is my staple topping. Very rarely do I order a pizza without it. Usually,
the option of salami is the only close thing available in the Netherlands. Well, thanks to an advertisement on TV, I was able to find a really
decent American style pizza.
New York Pizza! And I have to agree with their slogan. Damn Tasty!
I was more than surprised with this pie. For one thing, they actually had pepperoni! Secondly, the pizza truly
did taste American. Old school pizza American in fact. Kind of like Dino's Pizza if any of you have ever had the
opportunity. But from the second I put a slice in my mouth, it was bursting with flavour!
The sauce was just the right mix of sweet and salty. I believe it was the first taste to hit my mouth.
And I loved it! The pepperoni was everything pepperoni should be. A perfect blend of beef and pork, with just
a bit of grease on top. The mushrooms were perfect as they weren't too wet or slimy. They were just the right
amount of soft with the curling up of the edges from being cooked. And they complimented the other ingredients perfectly.
The cheese was also just right. I hardly ever order pizza without extra cheese, but always feel that you must order
any pie the way a place makes it on it's own to truly judge how good they are with their cheese. This establishment
was perfect. Just the right amount of cheese and it was bursting with flavour. I'm not certain if it was a blend
or just mozzarella. But it was good! The pizza we ordered was called "Pepperoni Perfection":
And boy was it ever! If ever in the Netherlands, I highly recommend this pizza!

We sent correspondent Jarrod Adams to The Netherlands in search of a good pizza. He found one at Sint Maria.

It was late at night, and Steve and I had been out on the town, and we were really
Nothing was open as everything closes around here between 5PM and 8PM. But we did find
this one pizza place. "Sint Maria" pizza was really good. It was very old school. I ordered a number
14: Pizza Salami (Tomaat, kaas en salami). Of course, I ordered it with double kaas (cheese). It was flat and
crispy. The crust was delicious! The sauce was pretty good. It wasn't too sweet or too spicy. It was
right in between. The cheese was sharp and very smooth, and it didn't stretch. It had a flavour much like ricotta.
The salami was very salty, which gave the pizza a strong sausage taste. The oregano stood out on the top of the pie
and gave it the perfect touch. I was very pleased with this pizza and would surely eat here again. I finished
the whole pie. My overall favorite thing about the pizza was the crust. Crispy heaven. Perfect flavour.
A perfect meal after a busy and exciting day!!
