Welcome To Proto's Pizza

East Village pizzeria offering the best pizza and pasta on the Bowery, the best pizza and pasta on the lower east side AND the best pizza and pasta in New York City. We only use the freshest highest quality ingredients to make our gourmet pizza and authentic Italian pasta dishes and entrees. And, of course, all our pastas and entrees are made fresh to order from scratch. We serve thin crust neopolitan style pizza using our slow cooked sauce and special cheese blend. Our Margarita pizza has buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil. We also specialize in deep dish pan pizza with our signature light and fluffy, yet crispy crust, made with a variety of gourmet toppings. Something really worth trying. We're confident that once you've tried one of our pan pizzas, you'll be hooked.

In addition to pizza, we also offer delicious paninis and hot heroes as well as an assortment of tasty appetizers including our sicilian rice balls stuffed with a rich bolognese and peas. Also, be sure to try one of our calzones or rolls, as well as our vegetable or meat pin wheels. So if you're looking for a great 2nd Ave pizzeria serving high quality gourmet pizza and delicious pasta, look no further. And, because of our extended hours, you can get that late night pizza and pasta when the craving hits.

Make sure to stop by or place an order for delivery, you will not regret it.

About Us

It's funny where life takes you. After a 20 year career in the financial services industry, which took me from the trading floor of the American Stock Exchange to various roles as a sales and proprietary trader, I found myself pondering life's next chapter.

My wife Isabel and I met nearly 25 years ago at NYU and spent much of our time in the East Village. Through the years she developed a passion and talent for cooking. The recipes that she has created over the years led us to explore opening a new business in the food industry.

My business experience has taught me several lessons, but the main takeaway for me after dealing with many CEO's through the years has been that the success of any business depends on the quality of their product and their commitment to excellent customer service.

Isabel and I decided it was time to create the best pizza in the East Village. It is this combination of a great product along with superior customer service that separates Proto's Pizza from everyone else. Our commitment to excellence is evident in the fact that our sauce is homemade daily along with our dough, and only the freshest and highest quality ingredients are used. Our core philosophy is that we will not sacrifice quality for profits. We believe that we are selling not only the best pizza in the lower east side but also the best pizza in New York City, and we are willing to build our reputation one slice at a time.
