Chrissy's Pizza taking over the former Superiority Burger space on 9th Street for its first pizzeria

Chrissy's Pizza, which gained a large following last year through a unique system (DMs via Instagram and made in the kitchen of chef-owner Chris Hansell), is popping up in the East Village next month in a familiar space. 

Hansell will make pies from the former Superiority Burger (and Salads Days!) space at 430 E. Ninth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue. (SB's Brooks Headley kept the lease on the storefront after the move to 119 Avenue A.) 

Hansell reportedly started making about 20 pies per week from his Bushwick apartment in late 2021.

The results, per The Infatuation
The crust is impossibly crisp, the sauce is rich and sweet, and the cheese ratio is ideal. There's also some secret ingredient that gives this pizza a little something extra. Love? Magic? You’ll have to try it for yourself.

Just like superiority, they TRY so so hard to be "weird" and cool it's so annoying, like, I get what you're doing, but it's too much. Very elitist vibe.

Have you tried the pizza or are you just a hater?

Great news! This spot has been empty too long. Does superiority burger still hold the lease? So the are subletting?

Agree 100%. It’s mid pizza. Enough with the elitism. Let’s see if they can compete with the 100 other pizza places within 10 feet. Instagram followers do not equal sales.

Please name at least 5 (not 100) non mid pizza places within the range you mentioned.
