New York West Pizza started with the idea of giving people the experience of great food, made with simple ingredients. From all of the house made sauces and dressings, to the daily made dough and mozzarella. Our belief has always been to give our customers the best possible cuisine, beginning with our pizzas, to our pastas and entrees, to subs, salads and appetizers.
New York West is is proud to offer hand tossed pizzas. As the name implies, hand-tossed pizza dough is tossed in the air and caught by hand, or more specifically, by the backs of the chef’s fists to avoid tearing. The tossing is repeated until the dough is the correct size and thickness. This method takes practice but produces a thin crust that’s strong enough to hold the toppings. When the dough is done, it’s topped with a thin layer of sauce and left to rest and rise for two to three hours before adding the toppings.
