Johnny's Pizza in Mount Vernon

I'm a recent transplant to lower Westchester, and I've been using this board as a tool to scope out a new list of local favorites.
Last night, on the recommendation of this board, we tried Johnny's pizza in Mount Vernon. It was excellent-- I think we have found our pizza joint. Amazing super-thin, smoky crust, not too much sauce, great toppings. Super-casual atmosphere, with cold beers and a low key local crowd.
So I wanted to say thanks. We plan to Sal's in Mamaroneck for comparison, but Johnny's was an excellent find.
Johnny's is the best, bar none. Sal's is just the typical pizza place (good for the rest of the country, nothing special for New York). Abatino's in North White Plains overrated. As for Dom and Vinny's, I haven't tried it, but I have to say, my money's on Johnny. BTW, they close for two weeks in August for vacation, so check the sign or ask. I'm thinking of loading up the freezer for the summer hiatus.
Welcome to Westchester, and happy eating!
Johnny's is by and far THE BEST - hands down, bar none. Sal's is nothing special in my book nor is Abatino's. I've also been to Dom and Vinnie's and again, I have to say nothing that special. I guess when you are comparing the above pizza places with your average hole int he wall, greasy pizza joint they are much better pies but I'd say that besides Johnny's they aren't worth a special trip.
