Top Pizza in Capital Region?

#1 DeFazios
I havent come across any in the area that id even rank other than them.
i just cant understand why the albany area has to be so pizza challenged . I used to think it was the water but Im leaning more towards the coal ovens they use in the city that makes such a difference because they cook so hot and fast that they let a thin crust bake but its not dry . Ive eaten Marinos before and they work the dough to much its like eating flat cardboard .Coal not wood gives a distinctive flavor and crust . Frank pepes in New Haven is prob the best I have had .they also make a clam pie that is just the most delicious thing I have ever ate . The good news is their pizza freezes great so i go there and get 5 to go take them home and freeze the pieces separately . Pop them in the oven or on the gas grill and I'm eatin a pizza that almost as good the minute it comes out of their oven

Best SLICE in Brooklyn

I agree the other store in Hartford is not as good as the Hew Haven one . I emailed them about it and they said mabey the oven isnt seasoned as well ???
But I was driving by Grimaldis and the line was very long on Saturday at 130 . We ended up at Difaras . It was excellent and then went to Aurthur Ave and got some stuff . We stopped at Dominicks to have dinner but never made it past the fried calamari and baked clams appitizer ( They give you a bakers dozen dont see that often these days ) to full so we never ordered entrees . Theres always next time . Their prices are very reasonable and portions are big

if you like clams and white sauce you would love clam pizza . Frank Pepes clam pie is just beyond good . I cant say anything more other than that about it its perfect in every way

Ya know living in albany has a few good points ,cheap housing and easy commutes ,no traffic but as far as food goes it sucks . And I dont mean to be insulting but it is what it is and there isnt any pizza up here . I mean Ive eaten at all these places and they all suck . It baffels me why only two hrs from the city and its so bad . I wont even eat it here any more . Food in general is bad here . Its always been and always will be cow town food . Its laughable
If you dont have a coal oven you cant have pizza

They may be touristy but when my brother was sick last summer and wanted to get to grimaldis before he passed and I asked my sister in law in manhatten to go there and get me 5 pies and they were so nice to her .
They discounted her order w/o asking and gave her free cannolis . They didnt have to do that either . I cant say anything but good about them and I do like their pizza Ive always had good luck there

Thats real interesting . Two pizza places now . Frank Pepes opened a new store in Hartford and it wasnt as good as the one in New Haven . i think it was the new oven . I was therein New Haven last weekend and had a clam pizza it was pretty good , I like several pizza places and they are all real good and each is a little different in its own way and that makes it hard for me to say one is better than the other

I was at Grimaldis Pizza in Brooklyn not to long ag to find they moved next door . I didnt go in . Did the coal oven go with them in the new building . Did a new place open in their old location and is it as good ???
