Louie & Ernie's Pizza
The 30 Best Pizza Places in NYC
Started by a pair of brothers (Louie & Ernie) in Harlem in 1947, this pizzeria migrated north to Pelham Bay in 1959 and operates in a charming house-turned-restaurant today. Slices and pies are joined by half-a-dozen meat and cheese calzones should you need a little pizza-adjacent app while you wait for your order. Crust is yeasty and crisp, and the thin layer of sauce and shredded cheese make for an easy folded slice, if that’s your thing.
