Sal and Carmine is another benchmark by which to judge a great New York slice. Like at Famous Joe's, the slice here is a study in understatement. The crust is properly thin, crisp and foldable, with just enough whole-fat mozzarella pulling away from your bite in melty strings. Sal and Carmine uses a hefty amount of Parmesan on the pizza, which adds plenty of flavor and just as much saltiness—some say too much. If you're salt-averse, you've been warned.
