Worst PIzza on Long Island

Hey, got a great idea...since most NY pizza is at least palatable, wouldn't it be fun to dredge up a list of the WORST pizza on Long Island? Really, I'm not a negative person, but I do admit to being a bit of a cynic. In that spirit, I think it's worth "warning" fellow foodies about pizzerias that would be wise to avoid, and I'd like to start the list with what is certainly the most pretentious LOOKING place for pizza, and one of the worst actual pizzas in terms of flavor and texture--Forest Pizzeria in Glen Cove. They used to be in the King Kullen shopping center and moved out to build what looks like the pizza emporium of the 7 hills of Rome itself, complete with balastraded railings and marble floors. It's like the Vatican of pizza. Unfortunately, the pizza, while it looks good, has almost zero flavor. Worst in Glen Cove for sure, maybe the worst around the entire north shore. A close second--Ciro's, also on Forest Ave. in Glen Cove. it's your turn to add to the list, my fellow hounds.

  1. Mario's chain is horrid, especially the one in OBay. No flavor, way too much dough.

    Garden City pizza is horrid as well.

      I have to agree with the mario's in oyster bay, in fact, if you come to oyster bay you will find many contenders for worst pizza in Long Island.

      I also agree Garden City's Neapolitan is pretty bad, but their grandma's is descent.
