New England/greek style pizza in NYC?

I grew up in New Hampshire and now live in New York City. Is there any place that serves the New England/Greek pizza style (wikipedia explanation here.) I live in Manhattan, so that's easiest, but obviously for something obscure like this I'd be willing to travel to other boroughs.

There's got to be lots of places in Astoria that do it.

not sure if it's the same, but a lot of pizzerias will serve something called either "sicilian" or "grandma"-style pizza, which is deep-dish with a thick crust.

What about Queens-based chain Singas Pizza?

Their one Manhattan location is in the East Village, 2nd Avenue, between 10th and 11th. They have a "Greek" pizza on the menu, with Calamata olives, fresh spinach, feta cheese, tomatoes, fresh chopped garlic.

Singas is a has Greek origins in Elmhurst, Queens and makes pizzas that are cooked in shallow cast-iron pans. They tend to have a thicker crust than NYC folks are accustomed to, and are only sold in individual pie portions. I can attest that the jalapeno ones are might tasty.

The sicilian style pizza I see is to risen (and the cheese and sauce on NE style pizza tends to be different too).

And while I love feta et al. on my pizza it's not just a question of greek toppings, but of the pan-cooked, crispier, greasier crust, etc.

There's a Singas in Manhattan too.

Although, I now see that the link from Singas' web site doesn't do it correctly.

Here.

On not previewing, it looks like Kathryn nailed it afterall!

Let me assure you that Sicilian style and Greek are not the same. It would be like saying A Gyro and a Donair are the same...
