There’s Queens, and then there’s “Deep Queens." Deep Queens is where I live. It’s where I’ve always lived and probably will always live. As far as I’m concerned, anything West of Flushing is Brooklyn. Now, there are a ton of pizza places in Deep Queens, but these seven are the best of the forgotten borough. (Staten Island isn’t a real place, I’m pretty sure someone made that up.) Do yous remember how to drive a car? Good. Here we go.
What you’re getting: Regular or Sicilian slice ($2.45)
What the hell is in Maspeth? Who cares? Just stop at Rosa’s for a Sicilian and get right back on the LIE. Done. According to my friend, Fudd, they have the “hands-down best friggin’ Sicilian in the city, cuz. Grandma slice too! Is it my turn to act?” (Sorry, we were playing poker when I quoted him.) While famous for its sauce-on-top-Sicilian, Rosa's also has crazy pies with ravioli (?) and taco toppings if you’re into that sort of thing. I’m not sure if i’m imagining it or what, but the regular slice seems huge compared to most other places. Ask Maspethians where to go for a slice and you’ll get the answer in exclaimed unison: “Rosa's! What are you, stunod?”
