New York Pizza & Boston Cream Pie: A 2012 Super Bowl Menu

Yes, we know Super Bowl Sunday is all about wings, dips, and things topped with cheese. But when you've got two cities (ok, New England is a region) that are famous for pie, it's hard not to get all theme-y with the menu. (We're quite predictable. Have you seen our Oscars party coverage?)We're not even stretching here. This is a great menu for a non-Super Bowl day—filling, crowd-pleasing foods that can largely be made ahead of time. The pizza will need to be cooked on-the-spot, but it's quick (and if you want to concentrate on the other dishes, you can always order delivery).
