[VIDEO] Could Milan-Style Pizza Be the Next Big Thing in New York City?

Coming from cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille of Artichoke pizza, The Big Ragu Pizzeria is a new joint in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, serving up Milan-style pizza, one of the only places in New York City to do so. In this video from our friends at First We Feast, learn all about the style and see how a pie comes together, straight from Fran and Sal themselves.

From Neapolitan and Sicilian to Detroit-style and deep dish, NYC is a wonderland for regional pizza styles. Now, a cheesy, soufflé-like pie from Milan is set to take the five boroughs by storm. Enter: The Big Ragu, the latest slice shop from cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille of Artichoke Pizza fame. Using a special, rotating oven, the Big Ragu creates a pie that's crisp on the bottom and perfectly doughy through the center. Serving slices cut into cubes—and enjoyed with a controversial fork—these Staten Island natives are challenging the ways New Yorkers see pizza. Love it or hate it, just remember one thing: At the Big Ragu, the sauce is the boss.
