Pizza Review: Aegean
Aegean finished #10 in the Newsday best pizza poll a couple years ago (behind Aegean 2 at #7, which makes no sense to me). Tried it for the first time a couple weeks ago.
It's on the smaller side for New York pizzas. It has a thick, soft, chewy crust, which is unusual since most New York pizzas are essentially Neapolitan--i.e. thin crust. Lots of cheese with a pleasant saltiness and hints of oregano. The sauce was fresh and light.
The place is located in the Sunvet Mall. And I mean "in" the mall. You have to go inside the mall (next to the Path Mark) to get there, as I found out on a rainy Sunday afternoon. So that kind of sucks.
Regular Pizza $12.25
