It's usually not until the annual Slice Out Hunger event that New Yorkers are treated to many excellent pizzas from around the city under one roof, but starting next week there's a mini version going down in NoHo.
Vic's on Great Jones Street begins a series of love letter-type collaborations between chef Hillary Sterling and some titans of NYC pizza. The likes of Dom De Marco of Di Fara's fame, Paul Giannone of Paulie Gee's, pizza expert Adam Kuban and his pop-up Margot's, and Bobby Hellen of GG's have all contributed signature pizzas that Sterling and her team will execute at Vic's for the month of June.
In addition to some fantastic pies, there's a wonderful charitable angle as well. A portion of the pizza sales will benefit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry initiative, which is dedicated to ending child hunger in the United States. Pies are priced between $18 and $22; see below for the descriptions and tenures of each pizza.
- Bobby Hellen of GG's (May 30th through June 6th): Square Vodka Pie with prosciutto, peas, sun-dried tomatoes and basil
- Domenico De Marco of Di Fara (June 7th through June 12th): Classic Round Pie with San Marzano tomatoes, whole milk mozzarella, Parmesan, and fresh basil
- Paulie Giannone of Paulie Gee's (June 13th through June 19th): Monte Cristo Pizza with mild Gouda, thinly sliced Canadian bacon and a drizzle of pure maple syrup
- Adam Kuban of Margot's Pizza (June 20th through June 26th): Margot's Ranchero Pizza, a nacho-inspired pizza with extra cheese, pickled jalapeños and a buttermilk ranch dressing
