Little Sam's Pizza has been serving New York Style pizza In San Diego since 1989. New York-style pizza is a common style of pizza, originating from New York City. This style is identified by its large, thin and flexible slices. The traditional toppings are tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese or a mix of provolone and white American cheese. It is traditionally hand-tossed and light on sauce. The slices are sometimes eaten folded in half, as its size and flexibility may otherwise make it unwieldy to eat by hand.
