New York-Style Pizza at Pizza Tascio

Erik Borger brought Kansas City a taste of Neapolitan-style pizza with Il Lazzarone. Now, he’s showcasing the thin, pliable slices of New York-style pizza at Pizza Tascio. The concept opened in St. Joseph last April and made its way to the Northland earlier this year, serving up pizza by the generous slice as well as whole pies. “New York pizza has always been one of my favorite things in life. I grew up in New York, so it was just like water, but triangular,” Borger says, laughing. His personal daily go-tos are a slice of cheese and slice of white tomato, made with ricotta and olive oil, but Pizza Tascio also offers supreme, veggie, and spicy pepperoni pies, among many more.
