900 Degrees recently opened in the West Village, one of the most highly concentrated areas in the city for great pizza – think Kestė and and the still-new Spunto, just a block or two away. The difference at 900 is they do three kinds of pizza: Neapolitan, Roman, and Tomato Pies. This review focuses on the Neapolitan Margherita.

The menu states that only 73 of the award-winning Margherita pies ($16) are made per day. We won’t quibble with the number, but unfortunately the pizza that arrived at our table wasn’t fully cooked, which made biting into the tasty cheese a less than optimal experience. There was plenty of sauce, but the flavor reminded us of a good, albeit thick tomato soup, which turned out to be somewhat of a distraction. The crust has the typical DOC softness, but it wasn’t enough to pull this together as a great pie.

900 Degrees might be pushing to be a little too upscale, but the staff is great and we’ll be back to review the Tomato and Roman pies soon.

It has also come to our attention that the Department of Health was not kind to 900 Degrees upon opening. Let’s get them back ASAP to give the thumbs up.
