When hippoCHAN was at school, I was browsing YouTube and stumbled upon Buzzfeed’s Worth It Video featuring pizza at three drastically different price points. Starting off at $2 was Joe’s Pizza, a classic New York pizzeria. It looks absolutely delicious on camera, so hippoCHAN and I headed down to Greenwich Village to check it out for ourselves.

It’s a tight space. The line-up might go out the door, but don’t blink because it’ll be your turn soon. Slices go flying out the door.

All the pizzas were fresh out of the oven, piping hot.

We stuck with the ultimate classic: Cheese. Unless it’s free at a student club meeting, I never have cheese pizza. But this changed my philosophy on the meaning of pizza. The unsullied purity of virgin pizza deserves the utmost respect.

That’s why we fold up that shizz and nom on it. The crust was incredibly thin, and mysteriously able to uphold awesomeness without limping like a wet tissue. No grease – just super clean flavours. I want this in my mouth again.

Until next time, Joe.
