Nick & Toni's is a Hamptons landmark, favored by locals and celebrities alike. In the summertime, you'd be hard pressed to get a seat while battling the likes of Jimmy Fallon or Alec Baldwin. During the off season, however, the real star at Nick & Toni's is their wood-fired pizza. Served Sunday through Thursday, indulge in options like classic Margherita, Amatriciana topped with pancetta, onion, tomato, burrata and pepperoncini, or the zucca pizza, topped with zucchini, tomato confit, salsa verde and ricotta salata.

Saverio's in Massapequa is a family run, authentic Neapolitan pizza room. All of their pizzas are made according to Neapolitan tradition, exclusively using imported San Marzano D.O.P. tomatoes on their Margherita pizzas and only using 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil. All toppings are made fresh daily or imported from Italy, and the pizzas are baked to perfection at 850 degrees in an Acunto wood-burning brick oven from Naples after letting the dough rise for 24-48 hours. No matter what slice you decide to order at Saverio's, you're sure to have a deliciously authentic bite every step of the way.

Nestled in Mineola, Taglio Pizza's main attraction is their Roman-style pan pizza. At first glance you may think the slices look Sicilian, but looking at the dough you see that it's not! Note the large air pockets that deliver a deliciously chewy texture. In addition to the regular NY style pizzas at Taglio, there are more than a dozen Roman-style pan pies every day, with every changing toppings. Try the non-traditional but familiar chicken bacon ranch, or a more classic combination like prosciutto and arugula.
