Cheektowaga is known for New York City pizza

Although Cheektowaga is located far north in the state of New York and is nowhere near New York City, New York City-style pizza is still one of the most popular types of pizza. New York City Style Pizza is a national favorite and is known for having delicious and flavorful Italian seasonings, lots of melty cheese, and a thin crispy crust.

New York City-style pizzas are made by rolling out a lump of dough until it is thin and then stretching the dough by hand until it is a perfect circle and thin enough to cook. The crust is then cooked with sauce on top in the oven for a little while.

Once the crust is almost done cooking, shredded mozzarella cheese and toppings are added to the pizza. Then, it is put back into the oven to finish cooking. The pizza is complete when the cheese is golden brown on the top and super melty.
