lions & tigers & squares pizza
Happy #NationalPizzaDay! 🍕 It’s a lion, it’s a tiger, it’s a square pizza!
I first discovered Lions & Tigers & Squares Pizza while just scrolling on the ‘gram and immediately bookmarked the place on my Yelp so that I could hopefully have the chance to try it next time I am in New York.
A few short months later, I found myself in the city and looking to grab some food before my Amtrak train out of Penn Station. I checked Yelp and realized that I was semi-close to this location and made the trek - rolling luggage and all.
It was a pretty warm day and it wasn’t until I got there that I realized there is absolutely no seating whatsoever (: however, that was fine with me and trust me, once you taste the pizza, you won’t even care!
Lions & Tigers & Squares is pretty much a hole in the wall, no frills, carry-out located in the Chelsea Manhattan serving up some insanely good pizza. They have many topping varieties to choose from including: cheese, pepperoni, vodka pizza, sausage and onion, mushroom and more!
I opted for good ol’ pepperoni. I feel like when ordering pizza, you can NEVER go wrong with pepperoni! It’s just yummy, spicy goodness. They cut theirs in-house into thick slices - swoon 🥰
Now what is Detroit-style pizza exactly? Detroit-style pizza is actually the cousin of Sicilian pizza with its rectangle shape but the crust is much thicker and pretty crispy. I ate one of the four squares and I was almost stuck in a food coma.
I’ve been a foodie for quite some time but it wasn’t until the over the past 5 years that I truly understood what a true quality slice of pizza was and Lions & Tigers & Squares, is it! If you’re ever in the city, be sure to check this place out and let me know what you think - It is more than worth the trip!
