“Discovered deep underground across the seven seas a magical and mythical formula… the secret New York dough and sauce recipe.
Dough made fresh daily, hand tossed for a crust that is authentic thin and airy. Add whole milk mozzarella and our fresh all-natural toppings. Crafted in the same oven and dough mixer shipped in from New York City” – Mark Francis, NY Slice owner
A few years ago, NY Slice owner Mark Francis, along with the rest of his pizza crew, took to the streets of Manhattan in search for the perfect slice of pizza to take home, dissect and analyse in their little lab. The results gave them the key to the perfect slice of pizza – authenticity, simplicity and the best ingredients.
Mark Francis, a UCT graduate originally from Pietermaritzburg, made sure he did enough research in the Big Apple to seek out and discover only the best dough, sauces and cheeses all over New York City. All of this to be able to give Capetonians the opportunity to sample the original NY Slice pizza experience back home, without having to pay more than R26 a slice.
To get your (not so little) slice of heaven, head down to 49a Kloof Street in Gardens where you will be welcomed by the friendly Maria, who has been working there since they opened their doors in 2013. Lucky for you there aren’t too many options. These are the five toppings that you can choose from:
- Manhattan (Whole milk mozzarella, original tomato sauce recipe & fresh basil)
- Pepperoni (Real New York Pepperoni)
- Staten Island (Crushed meat balls, red onion & parsley)
- Soho (Roasted peppers & caramelized onions)
- Buffalo Chicken (Buffalo chicken sauce & peppadews)
