Call for the best pizza in ossining area

shoekittykat Feb 16, 2009 04:52 PM

I am fairly new to the ossining area and I must admit there are a quite a few pizzerias here but I must admit I am still longing for a great slice like I had in the Bronx. I love pizza with a tasty sauce and thick crust. I also like sicilian style pizza. Does anyone have any suggestions for a great slice?

      I haven't tried it, but I've heard good things about Isabella's, the new pizza place across from the post office. It's a cute place, and the other food is decent, so it might be worth a shot. Just out of proximity, our go-to is Ossining Pizza, though it's nothing particularly special. Not bad, though.

        Isabella's in Ossining is great -- we've had it a few times and particularly love their New England seafood pizza. Their brick-oven thin crust is really great! But it's definitely a thin, thin crust -- not a thick one as noted by ShoeKittykat.

            For thick crust pizza I like Capriccio II in Croton.

              I second Marge on that - we live in Ossining, but near to Croton. For classic thicker crust pies, we head to Capriccio - no preference myself for #I or #II. For thin crust, Isabella's the ticket, for certain.

              Have only tried three places in Ossining for thicker crust pizza - the one across from Millwood Lumber (mediocre pizza, but awesome gelato in the store next door); Serafinas - have only had a whole pie there for dinner - was ok (was with vegetarians, and I don't love broccoli pizza); and Amendolas (across from Four Seasons grocery store on Croton Avenue (I remembering like that pizza, but this was 2-3 years ago)

                I recently passed by Amendolas and I believe they closed. I saw a coming soon sign, but don't remember what was going there.

                With regard to the op's request, I don't have anything to input for thick pizza. So far, none of the locals really do it for me. For regular slices, I usually hit Sal's if I'm coming from or heading south and Capriccio's II if I'm coming from or heading north.
