No matter how much of a foodie you are, there is nothing quite like a fresh slice of delicious, cheesy pizza. We at the Morningsider have a knack to snack and are eager to satisfy our cravings with a home-cooked slice of pizza from one of many thriving Harlem pizzerias. We recommend:
Bad Horse Pizza
Bad Horse Pizza, located at 2222 Frederick Douglass Boulevard at 120th Street, specializes in thin-crust, homemade pizza. While they also serve other Italian cuisine, they are best known for having some of the freshest slices in town. Bad Horse Pizza offers customers a variety of toppings for their pies, and also features unique specialty pizzas created by the owner and employees, such as: the Bad Horse (marinated skirt steak cooked to order, jalapenos, onions), Acropolis (greek feta, spinach, sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives) and the New Yorker (white pizza, smoked salmon, capers, onions, sliced tomatoes, olive oil).
Covo Trattoria Pizzeria, located at 701 West 135th Street at 12th Avenue, strives to embrace classic Italian traditions and recipes – from their home-made pasta, bread, and sauce to our favorite – the brick oven pizzas. If you’re having trouble deciding between their plethora of pizza options and toppings, you can always just go with the Pizza Del Giorno – Covo always offers up a special “Pizza of the Day” for those looking to try something new.
Though some might find the combination of pizza and crepes unusual, Oui, Oui Crepes and Pizza definitely satisfies your craving for both the sweet and savory. Located at 2167 Adam Clayton Powell at 129th Street in a small shop, Oui Oui’s menu offers big flavor in both their pies and crepes. From plain cheese and pepperoni pizzas to their Merguez (spicy African sausage) and vegetable, Oui Oui offers a slice for any taste. Stop by to try out their specialty hand-tossed pizza or order for late-night delivery.
