For hounds who hang around Ronkonkoma’s LIRR station, Scibelli’s is a go-to pizza destination. The near-perfect balance of sauce, cheese, and crust puts its regular slice ahead of the pack in that part of Long Island, says AmityGuy1. Also good: grandma slices and moist, dense garlic knots.
Other local contenders include Aegean Pizza in Holbrook, Gino’s in Patchogue, and La Margherita in Medford.
Out in Riverhead, coll sounds an uphill alert at Carlo’s Pizza Oven, which wasn’t bad to begin with but now, under new ownership, has refined its once-thickish crust to perfect Brooklyn-style thinness.
