A unique version of Sicilian is served at this Brooklyn institution Price:Slice, square or round, $2.25 As the sun sets over Brooklyn, its last gasps of light streaking the sky in pink against a deep blue backdrop looking like camouflage as envisioned by Elio Fiorucci, they flock to L & B Spumoni Gardens.

Clifton NJ: At Bruno's, Square's Where It's At

Nick Solares 2 comments

Located in a strip mall off Route 46 in Clifton, New Jersey, Bruno's has been around for decades, and the worn oven tells the tale—you can barely read the Bari logo on the door. It has all the hallmarks of a neighborhood pizzeria: The wall is decorated with pictures of Little League teams sponsored by the restaurant, and the menu is an unadulterated affair—no chicken wings or wraps to be found anywhere. Just two kinds of pizza: round and Sicilian. The regular round is decent, not extraordinary, but the Sicilian slice is exquisite. More

"Here Come the Nice" Veloce Pizzeria 103 First Avenue, New York NY 10003 (b/n 6th/7th; map); 212-777-6677; velocepizzeria.com Pizza Style: Sorta Sicilian, sorta grandma-style (somewhere in between) pan pizzas Oven Type: Gas The Skinny: If cooked to sufficient doneness, these 12-inch pies are delicious. Crunchy crust with a spongy-springy interior topped by a thick tasty sauce and quality mozz. Just be sure to eat it IMMEDIATELY; the dough (which may be too oily for many people) loses its crispness fast, becoming flaccid within 5 minutes of sitting in the pan and downright soggy after 10. Your best bet is to... More
