From the Times Ledger:
For City Councilman John Liu (D-Flushing), politics may be his profession, but pizza is his passion.
“I eat pizza almost every day,” Liu said, while taking a bite of his second slice of cheese pizza at Amore Pizza in Flushing. “That’s one of the best things about running for a citywide office: I get to sample pizza from all over the city. No matter where you are in New York, there’s always at least one pizza place.”
Liu, a former pizza deliveryman himself, said Amore Pizza in the Pathmark Shopping Center on Farrington Street in Flushing has been his barometer to judge the taste of the Italian standby for more than 20 years.
“I’ve been coming here for more than 20 years,” Liu said. “This is the best. This is how I gauge what is good and what is not.”
