Best Pizza in Dutchess County


I was wondering opinions for great pizza in Dutchess County - I am partial to square thin crust but always in search of a great cheese slice.

My favorite of all time is DD's on Hooker Ave in Poughkeepsie but a new great love is at Cozzy's Place a few door's down - there Nonna's pizza is fantastic - beats Alloy's any day.

What are your faves?

  1. ANTONELLA'S with locations in Fishkill and Wappingers Falls makes a good Pie.

      There is an Antonella's in Hyde park as well.

    2. Nonna's is really good - Thin, crispy crust and tasty sauce! As close as I've found to good NYC pizza in the Poughkeepsie area

      1. In Southern Dutchess, I like the regular slice at shop in Stormville. Huge, crispy crust and delicious, even by NYC standards. Still looking for a good Sicilian slice up here. Closest is in Yorktown at intersection of 35 and 202, next to bakery and cable TV place.

        1. My favorite is Goodfella's, in the Red Oaks Mill area of Poughkeepsie. It's in a shopping center on Vassar Road, right before it turns into 376 at the "shamrock intersection". They have tons of different types of pizza (chicken parm, bbq chicken, lasagna, buffalo chicken, sausage/peppers/onions, veggie, many more) and the slices are big and and I always enjoy them.

          Leo's in Beacon (on 9D) is also pretty good, and I also like Antonella's in Wappingers as someone else mentioned. However, those 3 places are pretty much the only ones I've tried, and Goodfella's is the best out of those 3 in my opinion.

          I usually get pizza with toppings rather than just cheese, so I guess this doesn't directly answer your question, but I'm just so happy to see a pizza in Dutchess thread! I haven't tried too many places because there are just so many to choose from so I stick with the ones I like. I'd love to see others' favorites as well.

            I love the barbecue chicken at Goodfella's! I haven't found a better one yet!
            Anyone have Nick's in Hopewell? Several years ago, K104 radio had a PizzaPallooza and they won "the best". All these pizza places came to a hotel in Fishkell and you could sample all their pizza - I wish they would do that again - I did not go.

            I haven't been to Nick's yet but keep meaning to try it. I like Pizza Village's in Hopewell Jct too. I have tried to go to Touch of Naples several times and every time I try, they are closed!

            A new place on Myer Corners Road opened - "Joeys" - he used to be the chef at Alloy's back in the day. I want to get there to try his thin crust. I have to put it on my list.

            If anyone wants amazing pizza - try the sicilian at DD's on Hooker Avenue - it is fantastic - thicker than regular and square, but not too huge and doughy like most. We had it last night and it was incredible. Their sauce and cheese are the best around........if they ever retire, I don't know what my husband will do.

              I actually just went to Nick's this weekend. I hadn't been in quite a long time. They are pretty good, but nothing amazing in my opinion. I have only had Pizza Village when we have pizza days at work, I will have to go there on my own sometime and try it. PizzaPalooza definitely sounds like a good idea!

          2. i like longobardi's in wappingers. great slice. i've also heard that a touch of naples in poughkeepsie is really good. amedeo's in poughkeepsie and little jozef's in hopewell are ok too.
