#PeachysPicksQueens #ThePizzaFactory #LongIslandCity by #EdinRedzic #DinoRedzic #ErnisBerisa and #MikeyPerez The First Peachy's Pick Ever in Queens or An Outer Borough of New York City!

Owner Edin Redzic of The Pizza Factory, the First Restaurant Ever in 14 years in an Outer Borough to Earn a Peachy's Pick designation
All Pizza is Not Created Equally.
Some is just Superior.
You may not pass go and collect $200 without the perfectly moist, essential Red Velvet Cake!
And they cannot miss with the tremendous Shrimp Scampi!
The lobby announced it! 
Progress indeed!
Drumroll, please.
Queens is the first outer borough to earn a Peachy's Pick column and it's because of the talents of The Pizza Factory and Edin Redzic!  We have worked with Edin directly at every visit to The Pizza Factory; it is owned by Edin, Dino Redzic, Ernis Berisa and Mikey Perez.
It is NOT an easy find. 
But we know our readers are smart cookies!  You can find it.
Especially with our help.
It's only a hop, skip and a jump over the Queensborough Bridge and the pizza makes it worth it.  And the shrimp scampi.  And the red velvet cake.
Here's what it looks like outside, and of course you go INSIDE for pizza, silly:
The Empire State building is in the background here for a point of reference for you.
Take this Google Map:
If you are sick of turkey already especially, you need to go here on the double!
Of course they have a chandelier, pinkies out, readers!
Guess they knew we were coming!
It is cold out.
You are freezing.
You need Fettuccine Alfredo from The Pizza Factory in your life to warm you up in its rich, cheesy goodness to light up your palate.  Though rich, it strikes the right balance and coats the pasta flawlessly without overwhelming it.
There are six salad selections, and we applaud the variety. This time we chose the Caesar Salad, above.  Romaine Lettuce is carefully chopped and artistically arranged with herb croutons which pack the right amount of crunch.  Below, please meet the House Salad.  Mixed Greens, Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Red Onions team up for a nutritional kick to your pizza dreams!  They listened and put the dressing on the side for Ms. Pretty Picky.
Note this place gets very popular at busy meal times so we suggest get there early!
What do the best of the best do?
They get better.
Now, The Pizza Factory is doing wings and they have flavor and style!
Edin suggested the Pizza Factory's Buffalo Wings in Mild with Carrots, Celery and Blue Cheese!
It's a surefire touchdown in your stomach and you don't have to be Taylor or Travis to order these.  We also applaud their variety of selection in quantity (8, 12, 30, 50 if you are really hungry!) and in flavor-there are five to choose from.  Absolutely delicious, and they hit the spot.
The Rolls and Calzone section is extensive, but what is important to know is that it is DELICIOUS.  Surely Popeye is envious of Peachy delicately devouring the splendid Spinach Roll, which hankers to volley into the rich tomato sauce for extra flavor points.  The freshness of the roll is highly regarded, as are the nutritional accolades inside.
Obviously, the piece de resistance here is the SPECTACULAR PIZZA!
We think this one might EVEN BE BETTER than the one Dino made us at Uncle Paul's!
Pictures speak louder than words!
Peachy chose to put on the large 18 inch tomatoes, garlic, onions, spinach, and buffalo mozzarella for a classic nod to eating healthy after Thanksgiving!  Obviously buffalo mozzarella is her most favorite vegetable here, but in all seriousness, you should know every component to this masterpiece is the ultimate in freshness and overall both pizzas, including the perfect cheese edition below, certainly lord over a lot of pizza we have had in Manhattan, thus justifying our pilgrimage to Queens.
The Shrimp Scampi was just as sublime as the pizza and it insisted on closeup glamour shots:
The Shrimp Scampi really announces class and elegance here, and not all pizza joints make this at all, nevermind make it well.  Every bite of each succulent little swimmer -which Peachy personally relates to because of her obvious towering height- is properly emblazoned with garlic and that touch of excellence only possible from The Pizza Factory in Queens.
And for everyone like Peachy, who had she been a student today at BC would have gone to lower for a Chicken Parm, you should know that Edin will make you an even better Chicken Parm!!!  And it will cheer you up after a loss to Miami!
Finally, Edin graciously and intelligently suggested the Red Velvet Cake.
Spot on!
This is simply the absolute best Red Velvet Cake we have had anywhere.
We reveled in its rich, luxurious flavor and ultimate moist quality which made it the first single item completely gone from this review, living happily ever after in Peachy's stomach.  We rarely get this excited about cake, but this cake won us over in a victorious fashion.
You simply must have it.
