New York-Style Pizza (S/F-JWCC)

New York-style pizza is a type of pizza with a large, thin, hand-tossed, firm yet pliable crust and typically served in wide slices. It was invented in New York City by Italian immigrants in the early 1900s, derived from the Neapolitan-style pizza invented in Italy. This style of pizza remains very popular in the Northeastern United States with many regional variants, and is the progenitor to many styles of pizza found across the United States, Canada, and beyond.
