A new pizza joint called Vito’s Pizza Kitchen is serving up New York-style pizza, sandwiches and desserts at 2921 E. Fort Lowell Road.
Chef Roy Santana says visiting New Yorkers have assured him that his pizza is as good as any in the Big Apple. He says the recipe for the crust and sauce are the same ones his parents used at their Chicago pizzeria, where they sold New York-style pizza back in the 1960s.
“We’ve had 100 percent positive feedback,” Santana said today. “I seriously take my pie very seriously. It’s really thin, it’s really crispy and it’s full of flavor.”
Vito’s Pizza Kitchen—owned by one of the owners of Vito and Shlomo’s New York Delicatessan—also sells stuffed pastas, “Vito Torpedo” sandwiches and desserts ranging from chocolate-tower cake to black-and-white cookies. Delivery is available within a two-mile radius.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday; and 11 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday.
