I'm a native New Yorker who has lived in Seattle for 10+ years, and I can tell you that Hot Mama's is the closest to NY pizza that I've found so far. Not only is the crust billowy at the edges and thin in the center, but the pizza sauce is perfectly seasoned. Hot Mama's doesn't have a real dining room, just a small dining area with stools and counters that accommodates no more than eight people comfortable. Parking in the neighborhood is a real chore, so take-out might be a pain. Fortunately, they do deliver.
