Tommy McNamara of NYCFC Eats The Best Pizza In NYC
What is the best pizza in NYC? What type of pizza do professional soccer players like to eat? Does Tommy McNamara like pineapple on pizza? What about ranch dressing? Are these things okay? Does Tommy even fold a slice?
Alexis Guerreros, host of The Cooligans, is also a pizza expert in NYC. You’ve heard him rant about pizza on the podcast before, now actually watch him put it to good use and entertain and horrify Tommy Mac and Christian Polanco. We find out if Tommy Mac puts ranch and/or pineapple on pizza and if he folds. How NY is he really? We find out!
Alexis takes Tommy & Christian to Lombardi’s, which is the first pizzeria in the US. What better place to start this journey than the first place ever. Is Lombardi’s pizza good? Is Lombardi’s pizza the best? Find out what Tommy Mac thinks about Lombardi’s pizza.
Next we go to Alexis’ favorite slice in NYC, Scarr’s in Chinatown. While relatively new in the NYC pizza scene, Scarr has been baking pizzas in NYC for a very long time and has an incredibly high standard. He uses the healthiest pesticide free flour, even milling some of his own in the basement for the pizza. He also uses organic tomatoes and the highest quality ingredients. Is Scarr’s the best pizza in NYC? Is Scarr’s Tommy’s favorite slice? Is Scarr’s the top pizza in NYC? Watch and find out!
The last pizza we try is the off-menu personal pan pizza at Scarr’s. A favorite of Alexis’ and Scarr’s, this pizza is baked in a pan with cheese and sauce to the ege. The star of this pizza is the incredible cpu & char pepperoni and the Mike Hot Honey topper.
