AJ's NY Pizzeria is a New York style pizzeria that opened recently in Topeka by AJ's, a company that has 2 Manhattan Pizzerias. They state on their website that their recipes come from Mastandos of Brooklyn, who have used these in their pizzeria for over 50 years. Their dough recipe has been modified by Tom Lehman, to make up for the lack of NYC city water.

They also have daily specials, both at lunch and other times of the day.

Just like in the big city, you can buy pizza by the slice. Myself, I love the calzones. My wife is a big fan of both their salads, and baked ziti. They offer several nice salads that can be a meal in themselves, or compliment your pizza.

They offer a wide array of toppings. Those include

Meats

Beef
Canadian Bacon
Cappocola Ham
Grilled Chicken
Breaded Chicken
Pepperoni
Meatball Italian Sausage (sliced link)
Pork Sausage (ground)
Anchovy
Salami
Bacon
Sirloin Tips

Fruits and Veggies

Black Olives
Broccoli
Fresh Basil
Green Olives
Green Peppers
Jalapeno
Mushrooms
Onions

Red Onions
Roasted Garlic
Pepperocini
Spinach
Pineapple
Roma Tomato
Sun-Dried Tomato

Cheeses

Blue Cheese
Cream Cheese
Feta
Provolone
Ricotta
Romano
Mozzarella

Sauces

Red
White
Pesto
BBQ Sauce


For dessert, they offer cinnamon knots and that NY staple, Black and White cookies.


If you are in Topeka, and you are hungry and have a hankering for good honest Italian food, call or stop by AJ's.

Thank you, they are one of my favorite places, and the fact they have late hours is really good, because we are night owls.

I have heard that Giovanni's is looking for another location. That would be good news
