Putnam County and upwards is a completely different world. I lived with a host family one year in western NY while playing juniors. Host mom wanted me to feel like home, so she ordered pizza. Pudgies square pie...I give her credit for trying.

Nothing wrong with square slices. Sheet Pizza in Buffalo is ****ing amazing and I still hold my opinion that it's better than any I had whilst living in New Jersey and Brooklyn, save two places. One was in downtown Manhattan, my dad and I would meet there for some lunch a few days a week. Then a place 5 blocks from me in Brooklyn that was GOAT and still is.

That's because, when people say NY pizza, they aren't referring to NY state.

amazing pizza (maybe it's amazing cuz I've never been there sober) is called Jumbo Slice here in DC. It's like what, a few dollars for an absolute massive slice:

Where do Motorino and Artichoke Pizza rank for all you NY natives? Those places fueled me on my last visit, can't wait to get back and get a couple of Grandmother pizza slices and take in a game at the garden.

I remember Maruca’s being the go-to pizza place while spending Memorial Day weekend at Seaside. Drinking beer all day + Maruca’s = Very happy camper.

Putnam is fine. I grew up there, and while the best pizza I ever had was actually in the Bronx, there are some very good places in that area. There are even some decent places in Poughkeepsie. Instead of saying Putnam and upwards, it should probably be Ulster and upwards. At least east of the Hudson. On the other side of the river... it's like the frontier.

In my time away from NY, I've met many, many people from NYC or the area. I've never once heard two people claim the best pizza from the same spot. There are simply too many people and too many pizzerias to rank these things on an even footing with other people.

I like the clam pie at Motorino. Artichoke's crab slice is great too.

Am I completely off, or do these places sound like they fall into a different pizza category (there are 5, non-comparable) than a regular NY-style pizzeria?

No you're right. When I think Motorino and Artichoke, I don't think traditional NY-style pizza. Motorino does smaller artisanal pies with funky toppings. Artichoke is probably closer to NY-style than Motorino, but they don't push you to try their cheese slice. It's all about their artichoke slice and crab slice .
