My review on TripAdvisor:

I came across Make & Bake Pizzeria when I was visiting East Harlem for my walking project, “MywalkinManhattan” and I needed a snack. I had already visited Moe’s Grocery a few doors down for a ‘Chopped Cheese’ and I needed a slice of pizza.

I followed the school kids from the two schools across the street into the pizzeria and they really seemed to like the pizza here. Because the kids are from the housing projects that surround the school and this part of Second and Third Avenues, the prices at the restaurants in the area are very reasonable. Here the prices are more than reasonable, they are cheap.

A slice of cheese pizza here is $1.00, a soda and water are $1.00, a small cheese calzone is $1.00 and five large garlic knots with sauce on the side is $1.00. There is a limited menu but everything here is under $5.00 with the exception of a full pizza and the most expensive on is $15.00.

The pizza here is very good. They load up on the cheese and it is nice and stringy when you bite into it. You have to be sure the pie is fresh. The sauce which is what I think gives the pizza its personality is nicely spiced and has a lot of flavor to it. The overall taste of the pizza is very good for a dollar a slice place. It is busy all the time so the pies have always been fresh when I have eaten there.

The garlic knots don’t last long either and they are nicely sized and are loaded with garlic. They come with a small side of their marinara sauce for dipping.

The restaurant is nothing to look at and by no means fancy but the place is packed after school with both kids and their parents. It is obvious to me that they know most of their customers because the owner greets a lot of the kids by name.

It is not in a tourist area and can be a rough area at night if you don’t know this section of the City but if you are up at one of the upper ‘Museum Mile’ museums, this is not that far of a walk away. It is an adventure I can tell you that.

I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
