I still want NYC pizza. Or maybe not, it might ruin other pizza for me.
If it makes you feel better, one of my best friends moved to Bratislava from NYC, and she's in love with the pizza you can get there.
Also, putting arugula on pizza isn't standard here, which is over there (according to her). I was in heaven the first time I had arugula on pizza...
As for the quality of NYC pizza, it's more like it has a strong skew in the range of pizza compared to other non-chain places. The average pizza place is going to hover around the level of quality for the better places outside the city (obviously excepting areas like Chicago and other cities).
And the best pizza there is going to rival the best in the world (which isn't saying much, since most areas known for their pizza have a distinct style).
But the lows are the same - dominos, pizza hut, etc.
