Are you asking for a number of places that sell pizzas, or a number of places that are exclusively pizzerias?

I don't have an aswer, but you might want to read through Slice NY, which might have a clue.

405 give or take few in New York City.

This according to Yahoo Yellow Pages.

The NYC Dept of Health and Mental Hygiene lists 1250 restaurants with the word "pizza" in the restaurant name and 394 restaurants with the word "pizzeria" in the restaurant name. Restaurant inspection information.

This sounds like a Fermi problem. ("How many piano tuners are there in Chicago?")

Menupages has 667 results for the pizza category. 80 of these are in Brooklyn, the rest in Manhattan. I am sure this is a gross understatement for the 5 boroughs but probably reasonably close for Manhattan.

Zero. We don't have anything called a "pizza shop", whatever that is.
