From Cyrus Bennett’s going pro party to Jordan Trahan’s Eat Like a Local episode, Scarr’s Pizza has been getting a lot of love from New York’s skate community since opening two years ago. Located on a block of Orchard between Labor and Max Fish, and just a few blocks from LES skatepark, it’s no wonder Scarr’s gets a lot of skate traffic. But the pizza is actually some of the best in the city, and made from 100% organic ingredients. Scarr Pimentel breaks down why so many people swear by his slices in his new interview with The Hundreds.
Nobody knows, but our slice is organic too. Nobody does that in the city. A lot of those expensive spots use garbage. We use non-GMO. We go the extra mile. There’s cans of tomatoes that are 10 years old. I’m not using stuff like that. People see girls and lines, and they think the pizza is the best in the world. But these are people that are not from here. They don’t know what a good slice of pizza is. Even the young kids that are from here don’t know. Pizza has been garbage by the slice here for the past 15 years I would say.
Head over to The Hundreds site to learn more about one of New York’s favorite downtown hangouts.
