East Village NYC Pizza Walking Tour

4. East Village NYC Pizza Walking Tour

Explore New York’s Lower East Side on a unique walking tour that combines a little history, some local color, and a lot of pizza! Once the proving ground for newly arrived immigrants, the Lower East Side housed a mix of Germans, Poles, Ukranians, and Italians - all from working class families just trying to make it their home. It was a neighborhood so cramped, the goal of all who lived there was to get out as quickly as possible. Fast forward a few decades and it has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in New York. More importantly, it has become one of the most pizza-dense neighborhoods on the planet! The streets are filled with classic slice shops, tiny Neapolitan eateries, and creative new angles on century-old techniques. As you walk - and your guide fills you up with pizza knowledge - stop at 3 pizzerias, each specializing in a different stage of the pie's development from a humble Neapolitan street food to a celebrated American staple. Spend time with the owners and pizzaioli (pizza makers) to learn some of the tricks of the trade. Beyond learning about ancient pizza toppings and dough stretching techniques, compare the baking patterns of 3 different pizza ovens. By the end of the tour you’ll have a deep understanding of pizza’s origin, as well as its evolution into a worldwide phenomenon.

North Brooklyn Pizza Walking Tour

5. North Brooklyn Pizza Walking Tour

The best way to enjoy New York is by walking its streets, but the only way to taste New York is by eating its pizza. You can do both on this 2.5-hour crosstown pizza walk! When the Williamsburg Bridge opened in 1903, Southern Italian immigrants fled the tight quarters of Manhattan's Little Italy for the wide open spaces of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This tour concentrates on this vibrant neighborhood, which today boasts a mix of trendy hipsters and old-school standbys. Every pizza walking tour focuses on the history, science, culture, and taste of pizza from all angles — not just New York style. Your guide will take cues from your group and route the tour to pizzerias that will satisfy your curiosity and answer your pizza queries. That's right — we don't hit the same spots every time! You'll visit pizzerias heralded by Zagat's, AOL City Guide, Time Out New York, the Food Network, and New Yorkers alike as the city's best. After your tour you’ll have a new appreciation for this modest dish and the people who introduced it to the masses.
