Pizza genre widely-available in Manhattan, the five boroughs, and northern New Jersey. Typically involves a 24-inch pie with floppy slices that must be eaten with both hands. Pies are usually under a heat lamp for 15 - 45 minutes and re-heated in the oven when purchased. Dubious nuitritional value but undisputed utility as a drinking cushion.
"Ray's" pizzerias in Midtown West, West Village and Lower Eastpacking serve up heat lamp pizza.
