New York is one of the pizza capitals of the world; you can get good pizza just about anywhere. But it is because of this plethora of good pizza that truly great pizza can often fall through the cracks and go unnoticed. All too often the best pizza shops do not get the business that they deserve, due to so much competition; which really is a shame. Luca Bella doesn’t deserve that fate.
Luca Bella makes great pizza.
Today we are focusing on their Big Mac pizza; they also make excellent Plain, Sicilian, Philly Cheese Steak, and Vodka Sauce slices among other things, so stay tuned for further reviews.
This is Luca Bella’s Big Mac:
Looks amazing right? Having had this slice on many an occasion, I can tell you that Luca Bella has found a way to make their slice not only taste, but smell like you just ordered a signature burger from McDonalds; I’d argue it actually tastes and smells better than the real thing.
Their meat is fresher, their vegetables are crisper and more flavorful, and the sauce is on point and out of this world; but the key? Look at that crust, it is a perfect, crispy version of a hamburger bun. It is a great touch that adds the cherry on top to an already great concoction (did I just make a food analogy about food?).
Even my friend Eric who is one of the biggest food snobs I know and would never willingly go to McDonalds (childhood aside), was amazed at how authentic and spot on this slice of pizza truly was; a high compliment from him.
When it comes to taste and aesthetic quality, the Big Mac pizza from Luca Bella is easily a **** 1/2 star slice and is a must eat. So if you are ever in White Plains and fancy a different kind of pizza, pop in to Luca Bella at 206 Mamaroneck Ave., and you will not be disappointed.
