Amore Pizzeria

Located in a quiet strip mall at the northern edge of Flushing, Amore is home to some of the best pizza in NYC. This little fluorescent-lit shop has been open since the 1970s, and it has all the hallmarks of a classic pie joint: employees wearing Yankees hats, ceiling fans with dangling strings, and just enough tables to seat a modest birthday party. Their Sicilian slices are pleasantly doughy (kind of like the ones at L&B), and the sandwiches get the job done—but what you really want is a plain cheese slice. The crust is thin and crispy with a little bit of chew, the sauce is thick and not-too-sweet, and the thick layer of cheese is bright orange with grease. Get a whole pie and split it with some friends in the barebones space, or take your food to go. Just keep in mind that this place is cash-only.
