The city of Naples invades the Bowery with oblong wood-fired pizzas sold by the slice or al metro (by the meter, as in a pie one meter long). Giulio Adriani's pizzeria outpost for his main restaurant Forcella serves up a limited selection of handcrafted pies that defy geometry. This upscale pizzeria is about expedited quality without flair, with its white-tile walls, scattered tables, and menu written on a chalkboard. The pizza offerings range from the simple well-crafted Margherita to the hot salami, which overflows with juicy heat. The dough of the prosciutto di parma variety is stretched before baking, which creates an air pocket and allows for stuffing, creating a thin calzone effect that surprises you with a one-two punch of bitter arugula softened by creamy stracchino cheese. A Slice of Naples uses high-quality ingredients, like the potent pesto drizzled on top of the Caprese. It makes this pizza joint a solid alternative for those who want more than a $1 slice of regret.Recommended Dishes
