Best Pizza in Westchester (again)

if I am unable to get to DiFara or Totoinno Brooklyn on my next trip to NYC, any place that would compare in Westchester or Bronx ? Or is this a very silly question

  1. Sort of silly... DiFara and Totonno's have loyal followers who will debate you on this.
    If you want a pretty good pizza in a nice atmosphere, that's a different story.

    Bronx: Patricia's in Morris Park or Throggs Neck. They have a coal oven and both locations are pretty reliable. Margherita and White pizza are both quite good.

    Westchester: don't laugh.... Pizza and Brew in Rye or A'mangiare in White Plains.

    You're not going to get DiFara pizza unless you go there, but there are other good choices around.

    Edited to say: please post back on what you have tried... thanks!

    1. Hubby and I are crazy for the pizza at Sabatino's in Hawthorne - right across from the Hawthorne Multiplex on 9A. They've got an old-fashioned coal oven that puts a perfect char on the crust. Definitely great for mid-upper Westchester.

        Racanelli's in Rye Ridge was pretty good, surgeon.

      2. go to robertos pizza/trattoria on arthur ave/bronx...across st from teitel brothers zero otto nove 2357 arthur ave/bronx 718 220 1027

        1. Romeo's Pizza is a hole-in-the-wall in Irvington (corner Broadway & Main). They have slices available with fresh mozzarella (bocconi? little balls), fresh tomato, lots of fresh basil...I wouldn't call it a destination restaurant, but if you're in the area that stuff is GOOD!

          1. For the most part, pizza in Westchester is pretty uninspiring. If you like it by the slice, Joe's in Fleetwood makes a classic NY variety.
            I have heard that Sabatino's in Hawthorne is excellent so we are going to check that out soon.
            If you don't mind venturing over to the Bronx, Roberto's Zero Otto Nove is phenomenal. Pizza is not by the slice though. My wife and I have an Italian food blog so we did a feature on it recently - you can see it here:
