Hand-tossed dough sails sky-high at Bonello’s New York Pizza, where chefs pepper pies in an oregano-based herb blend sealed in by the flickering flames from a stone oven. Dining companions can peruse the menu’s inspired litany of toppings—which include balsamic marinated steak, cashews, and pineapple—which drift across eight hefty New York–style slices ($10.95+) or a Sicilian–style pizza doused in homemade marinara. Like an underachieving yardstick, Bonello’s hot and cold sandwiches span 18 inches and stuff themselves with hearty mounds of homemade meatballs, Neapolitan cold cuts, and sweet italian sausage ($4.95+/half, $6.95/whole). Marinara and melted mozzarella ooze over a tender trio of ricotta-stuffed manicotti tubes ($8.95), where ropes of angel-hair pasta lope themselves around chopped roma tomatoes, garlic, and basil ($8.95+). Those looking to feast in the comfort of their own castles can place on an order for pickup on Bonello’s nifty online order form, an accommodating alternative to ordering via phone or smoke signal.
At Two Guys Pasta and Pizza, tomato sauce simmers on the stove for hours, while housemade pizza dough bakes in the oven until bubbly and crisp. The eatery’s from-scratch sauces and breads have earned nods from the Daily Bulletin, which hails the fresh-baked bread as “outstanding—almost a meal in itself.” Diners can also make a meal out of Two Guys’ specialty pastas and sandwiches, pairing these eats with draft beers and bottles of wine freshly tapped from the grape bush.

Choice is key at Jafang Pizza. Customers can choose everything from size (ranging from by-the-slice to 28-inch party pizzas), crust (white or whole-wheat dough made daily in-house, thin or thick crust), sauce (including marinara, buffalo, cheeseburger, and specially seasoned olive oil), toppings (all the standards, plus grilled chicken, sliced turkey breast, and cucumber), and cheese (such as mozzarella, feta, and a vegan variety). No matter how the pizza is topped, Jafang Pizza strives to keep each pie lighter and healthier than the average slice. These custom pizzas can be eaten at Jafang, delivered, or premade and cooked later at home. In addition to pizzas, the restaurant also serves up sandwiches, salads, and appetizers, and pours a variety of alcoholic beverages, including more than a dozen draft and bottled beers and a selection of signature cocktails.
For Gourmet Pizza Shoppe owners Bill, Don, and Scott, the standard assortment of pizza toppings isn't enough. Though pepperoni, sausage, and black olives are certainly part of its repertoire, the trio also stocks exotic ingredients such as mashed potatoes, peanut butter, and crabmeat—making a total of more than 120 toppings. Strewn across dough made fresh each day, these morsels form custom build-your-own pies or dozens of specialty pizzas, ranging from classic eggplant parmesan to the out-there Mini Pearl, loaded with country gravy, mashed potatoes, and fried chicken.
