Welcome to Gracy's Bar & Bistro, where we serve up some of the best pizzas in town! As a pizza lover, you may have noticed that there are many different types of pizza out there. In this blog, we're going to talk about two of the most popular styles: Italian pizza and New York pizza.

Let's start with Italian pizza. This pizza is typically characterised by its thin crust and fresh ingredients. Italian pizzas are often cooked in a wood-fired oven (just like our pizza’s here at Gracy’s) which gives them a crispy texture and a slightly charred flavour. The toppings on an Italian pizza are usually simple, with just a few high-quality ingredients like tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, and basil.

On the other hand, New York pizza is famous for its large, foldable slices. The crust on a New York pizza is usually thicker than an Italian pizza and has a chewy texture. The sauce on a New York pizza is often made with crushed tomatoes, and the cheese is a blend of mozzarella and cheddar.

So, which pizza is better? It really depends on your personal preference. Some people prefer the simplicity of an Italian pizza, while others enjoy the heartiness of a New York slice.

But let's be real, no matter what type of pizza you prefer, we can all agree that pizza is the ultimate comfort food. And let's not forget the jokes! Did you hear about the Italian chef who died? He pasta way. We cannoli do so much…..anyways….

So next time you're in the mood for pizza, come visit us at Gracy's Bar & Bistro. Our pizza’s are made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and cooked to perfection in our wood-fired oven and, why we might be a bit biassed that a woodfire pizza is pretty flawless, why not give it a go and see how it compares to a New York slice. 

And remember, no matter how you slice it, New York or Woodfire - pizza is always a good idea.
