- To make New York-style pizza the Grimaldi's way, it all starts with the oven. Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven delivers a one-of-a-kind flavor and consistency that can't be replicated by wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day, the oven heats up to 1,200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create a crispy and smoky thin crust pizza that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year. Their pies are typically served Margherita-style (plain cheese with basil) or with pepperoni. Checkered tablecloths and cloth napkins lend an air of sophistication to this bright, airy pizza joint.
