Cowboy Pizza

Over here on the far reaches of the Lower East Side of Manhattan we have been historically pizza deprived. By which, to be clear, I mean good pizza deprived.  There is a pretty good place on Clinton, but in order to get there from our place you have to cross the highway-like Delancey street.  Too much of a barrier for a slice.  I want something close, really close. We used to have a Two Boots which we loved, but it didn’t go over well and was soon replaced by a Mexican restaurant.  There has been a fairly good place on Clinton between East Broadway and Henry streets, but it closed really early like 7 pm nightly so if you wanted a slice after 7 you were out of luck.Thankfully the folks who own Pushcart Coffee saw a niche that needed to be filled and purchased the old pizza place, gave it a Williamsburg facelift and Ta Da introducing Cowboy Pizza open from 11-11 daily.

Neil is going to be so happy!

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
