Sam's famous Pizza was established in 1962. Our dough is made from scratch daily and our signature sauce is made from vine-ripened San Marzano Italian tomatoes. Throughout the years Sams famous Pizza in El Barrio has become just as popular with tourists as it is with native New Yorkers who know where to come for an authentic New York street slice. After 52 years, Sams famous is still an independently owned family business at only one location. We still are what we've always been, a classic NY slice joint.
