Man Eats at Every NYC Pizza Joint: Gross or Great?

Could you eat a slice of pizza at every one of the 362 pizza joints in Manhattan? Probably not. But for 28-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y., resident Colin Hagendorf, it was easy as pie. "I will always eat pizza. There’s nothing better for lunch or dinner," he told The New York Daily News. "I grew up in New York. I eat pizza. That’s what I do."



Hagendorf spent the last two and a half years on the project and writing about it on his Slice Harvester blog. And no, he's still not sick of eating pizza. "I still love eating pizza, but I just got sick of writing about pizza," Hagendorf, a waiter at a Brooklyn diner, told the News. "There is only so much you can say about pizza."

Hagendorf has since received reality show proposals, phone calls from Google and book pitches, according to the News, but he swears this was not his intent. "I have no business acumen," Hagendorf told the paper. "But that’s what is so appealing for most New Yorkers. Nobody is paying me to do this. It is all very guileless and quite clear that I did not start this with the intention of being famous and making money."

Live in New York, or plan to visit? Hagendorf only awarded a perfect score to one pizza place: Pizza Suprema near Penn Station.

    Hey if that is his thing I say "Go ahead on"! I like Mexican food and probably could eat it most any day of the week. I imagine with all his experience in the pizza taste testing department, he would be a great asset to the pizza industry.

    I love pizza. Pizza is a balanced meal, no matter what the gullible, brain washed, liberal fools think. It contains ingredients from all four food groups.

    Im certainly NOT a brainwashed Liberal fool....I usually get a pepperoni Pizza with sausage and extra chees. Or a hamburger pizza tastes good too. Anyway's conservatives and republicans can be fools too.

    Liberals believe all of B Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro's lies, no matter how many times he tells them, which is often.

    And that applies to all Liberals How? That would be like saying ALL Black people eat greasy food or ALL asian men have small privates or ALL germans supported hitler. Stereotypes don't work that well when subjected to reason.

    cute if one is going for a silly world record but not very balanced and healthy... then again he could do worse by eating at every burger joint in NYC....

    That is awesome! I love pizza and have tried everyone within a 30 mile radius of my home, but that pales in comparison to the 362 that he has sampled. Also, every time I visit NYC i always have a slice somewhere new and Pizza Suprema is on my list for the next visit!

    There are three "regular" pizzas I eat, because the sauce is cooked enough to kill the deadly enzyme that makes me sick as a dog.
  • Clyde Lanikai 2012/01/05 20:37:28

    Oh...well that's different...I didn't know it made you sick. Sorry Lan, was just busting your chops a little. Hey...white pizza is awesome also, so it's not all bad! ;)

    No worries, even th epizza places think I am freakish until I explain and my daughter has picked up my habit and at any function or sleepover, I have to take money over and ask them to please order her a no sauce pizza.

    Some have actually figured out that it is really good-more of a loaded cheezy bread.

  • Lanikai retrograve 2012/01/05 20:04:57

    I order mine with no sauce. i HATE tomato sauce. There is a restaurant in Panama City that offers a garlic and butter sauce, that I enjoy.

    I've heard the ones with just cherry tomatoes and mozzarella were good too. cherry tomatoes and mozzarella basil pizza I thought you might have meant something like this.
  • Lanikai retrograve 2012/01/05 20:14:54

    Oh no, that would kill me. i am deathly, deathly allergic to the enzyme in tomatoes.

    Yes, 1 cherry tomato has been known to kill a cat.

    with thin crust, garlic butter and lots of non-meat toppings so much so that one has to eat it with a fork...
  • retrograve thegaln... 2012/01/05 20:14:20
    retrograve
    My mom likes thin crust too, but I love a thick crust myself. Do you like any sauce on yours?
  • thegaln... retrograve 2012/01/05 20:21:05
    thegalnextdoor
    Yes I do like sauce but sometimes will forgo if the tomato sauce is aggravating any arthritis or fibro... a pizza blanca can be very good as can a kosher mediterranean pizza without cheese but with lamb (gyro meat).....
  • retrograve thegaln... 2012/01/05 20:27:13
    retrograve
    Wow, tomatoe sauce can bother arthritis too?

    Pizza with lamb sounds like it would taste good.
  • thegaln... retrograve 2012/01/05 20:44:28

    it can and does... and watch the oranges and potatoes too... nightshades... try a pizza with lamb... you'll be addicted

    There are enzymes that can affect low level cellular structures and cause inflamation around joints.
  • Willy Lanikai 2012/01/06 00:07:35
    Willy
    It's not pizza without the sauce.
  • Lanikai Willy 2012/01/06 15:28:39
    Lanikai
    Sure it is , the shape is the same and the cheese is the same and the toppings are the same, just no sauce.

    *tomato enzymes for some of us can be as deadly as peanuts to some kids, so my version of pizza is still pizza, just different from yours.
