Hopefully this pie fest won’t be half-baked. The first-ever New York Pizza Festival rises in the Bronx this fall, and organizers are taking steps to avoid the dough-saster that plagued its predecessor. […]
“The professional pizzaioli that were handpicked to attend are pros at pumping out delicious pies so all slices will be fresh and hot,” Mortati told the Daily News. “We have been putting a lot of thought into the layout of the event so that everything flows properly.”
He adds that there will be “full-size slices — no sample sizes.”
This year’s pizza party is a two-day fest happening Oct. 6 and 7 on Crescent Ave. in the Belmont section of the Bronx, just steps from Arthur Ave., known as the borough’s Little Italy.
The New York Pizza Festival will feature more than 25 different pizza joints slinging different styles of pies. There will be a mix of local favorites — like Di Fara of Brooklyn and Denino’s from Staten Island — and standouts from around the country.
