New York Style Pizza in Charlotte

I’ve been very lax in updating the Charlotte section of this blog as well as  Turns out my favorite New York Style Pizza Place, Nurchi’s, shut down last year and that was a big disappointment.  Nonetheless, there are a lot of ex-New Yorkers in Charlotte, and a number of good New York Style Pizza Places in the Charlotte area.  Carlo’s is my favorite.  Here are some comments from my relatives who live in Charlotte or visit often:

 From Gerry:

The first one to come to mind is the one up at Prosperity Road.  I can’t think of the name, but some others on this list will, and they can put it on your website title

The Carlo’s on N. Tryon St is no longer.  However, there is a Carlo’s in the South Blvd. Also some that I like are: Amalfi’s at the University area, Portafino’s on Eastway, Fuel Pizza on Central, (I think that you have been there), Hawthorn’s NY Pizza on Hawthorn

From David
I think he is talking about Due Amici. You can’t go wrong there. The first time I ate there I thought I was back in New York.

From Valerie:
I have been to Hawthorne’s NY Pizza, here is my brief review: 

No green, red, white decor, pizza by the slice M-F only. I was not thrilled with it, I had part of a large cheese pie

Another Charlotte place is Due Amici Pizza at Prosperity Church Rd. and Mallard Creek Rd. intersection.  They do have the green,white, red decor and pizza by the slice, but are closed Sundays so I couldn’t try one.

    newyorkpizzafinder doesn’t seem to work (in either IE for firefox). It just shows a us map with some flags, but no text (except “xxx”), and nothing to click on. Is it down?

    Tony’s Pizza in Ballantyne is by far the best pizza in all of charlotte. It’s simple, the way pizza is supposed to be. Some places put garlic and oil in the dough and lots of garlic in the sauce. Tony’s doesnt, they use top quality products so they dont need to mask with lots of garlic and herbs. The slices are HUGE and they keep it simple by only offering plain cheese or pepperoni by the slice. With the lunch rush they get there is a line out the door so they keep it moving by keeping it simple, at least thats what I was able to observe.

    I feel like I had never left Jersey when I found ANGELA’S PIZZA Hiding here in Charlotte.
    They were a bit off the beaten path but I went on a recommendation.
    NY style pizza in the South …finally a comparison.
    Their sicilian style pizza is……………….. FUHGEDABOUDIT!
    Heads up,no red white and green decor, no pizza by the slice, but you will get that “neighborhood joint”feeling.
    Tell em “mikeypalermo” recommended them .
