Pizzerias are ubiquitous in New York City, so it’s not surprising when one goes beyond the norm in order to get attention. West Village Italian-Cajun Pizza Parlor, as its name implies, seeks uniqueness by melding southern Italy with southern Louisiana. While purists will cry foul, locals, especially New School faculty and students, have been ordering from here since 1996. Located on the first floor of a small building, the bite-sized restaurant is strictly utilitarian, from the fluorescent lighting to the maroon countertop. Gray-painted walls with gray and maroon tiles are brightened by a couple of red and green neon lighting tubes. Three tiny tables service customers who generally are waiting to pick up their pies. But the pizza is a cut above the ordinary. The cornmeal-dusted crusts are crispy and golden, topped with chewy mozzarella and a pleasantly piquant tomato sauce spiked with cayenne pepper and hot pepper sauce that nods to the bayou. Toppings include anchovies, sweet sausage, black olives, and sun-dried tomatoes; opt for the mildly spiced andouille sausage packed with garlic. Don’t tell your nonna, but it’s a nice change from pepperoni.
