Places 2 Check Out: Nu Yalk Pizza

Posted: Updated:

Sitting right in front of the Winco on South Virginia Street, Nu Yalk Pizza is the newcomer to the neighborhood but certainly not to the town. It used to call the corner of Moana and Kietzeke home. But tasty pies had to give way to a turn lane for the Moana expansion. And since the owner, Rick Crocitto owned the building, he wanted to buy another one. And this new location seemed ideal. "Looking around I thought is going to be a heck of a location. I think it's going to be at least double the other location gross wise and it turned out to be even more."

Rick bought an extra double decker pizza oven. He now has two. And they've both been cooking up pizzas since the day they opened their new doors. But in an economy that's still recovering, why start fresh in a new location? Rick says it's all in the family. "That's me and my grandpa. And he's the one who started the pizza business back in 1919. I stay on top of it. We use organic flour, organic spices and organic tomatoes."

Rick says he's constantly tasting the ingredients. If anything isn't quite right, he changes it before it reaches the customer. And his pizza fans, like Michael Morrow, notice. "This pizza is some of the best in the country. I'm going to tell everybody, especially my Italian paisans to come to Nu Yalk Pizza."

There are other offerings like sandwiches, calzones and spaghetti. But it's the pizza that keeps people coming back, no matter the location.
