I love pizza. Not every pizza. I’m from NYC so I'm spoiled because my favorite pizzas are from NYC, which outside of Italy is where the best place pizzas are made. Not everyone will agree, but that’s fine because after traveling around this entire big world and having eaten pizza in lots of cities in lots of countries, I can say without a doubt that this is the truth and a fact. I no longer live in NYC, so I’m always on the lookout for a decent pizza joint that makes great pizzas, if not a NYC pizza.
So, whenever I hear of a place claiming to have “NYC pizza, etc.” I have to try it. I’ve tried some bad tasting pizzas in my travels from goat cheese pizza to totally burnt pizzas; from plastic tasting cheese to frozen dough. Now, this is what pizza is all about. It is definitely, without a doubt NYC pizza with the exception that NYC pizza doesn’t have all the fixings on them, like this place does. Traditional NYC pizza is just plain cheese, with pepperoni or the thick square slices called Sicillian stlye. NYC pizza also doesn’t come in whole wheat. From what I saw and tasted on my first visit here, this pizza does it right from the smell, sight and texture, though the crust should be a tad bit thicker so the slice doesn’t bend and the pepperoni doesn’t fall off. Other than that, if you are looking for an authentic tasty NYC pizza, such as the terrific city of NYC makes, this is the place to go for it.
Sadly, Mississippi, like Hawaii, doesn’t have pizza joints, with the exception of Pizza Hut and Domino’s, which in my opinion is a sad substitute for pizza. Pizza Shack was it for me, though not the best pizza I ever tasted, or the worst, and not a NYC pizza, it was the best , so far in Mississippi. Not anymore. Now that I found Sal and Mookie’s, and as long as they don’t change anything, this will be the pizza parlor (which is what we call them in the Big Apple) for me. Great pizza, though a bit pricey: Never in my life did I ever pay thirty bucks for a whole pizza pie, and I’ve lived in Hawaii, Alaska, LA and NYC. Comfortable ambience: It’s more of a restaurant and less of a diner. There is wait staff and both inside and outside dining. And the ice cream cones aren’t bad either. I had a huckleberry one, which was delicious and refreshing on a nice hot Mississippi day.
