7 Iconic Westchester Pizzas to Order for Super Bowl Sunday

If your Super Bowl order includes “cinna-stix,” we’re taking away your Westchester Parks card. Here are the local pies you should be ordering.

Super Bowl Sunday is infamous as one of the biggest pizza consumption days of the year. While in many parts of the county people drop their pizza bucks on delivery, Westchester is pizza country, and our standards are a bit loftier than Domino’s or the Hut. The biggest game of the year calls for an equally important pie. Here are seven of our favorites.

Square Tomato Pie from Abatino’s 

670 N Broadway; White Plains; 914.686.0380

Located in a North White Plains strip mall, this Italian restaurant makes one of the county’s best fresh tomato pies (fittingly on the menu as “Award-Winning Pan Pizza”) with lots of molten mozzarella and even more oregano. The toppings, delicious as they might be, can’t hold a candle to the star of this show: the golden, crisp-chewy crust. We’ll go for the corners every time.

Sausage and Peppers from Billy & Pete’s Social

121 Myrtle Blvd, Larchmont; 914.909.5289

For the dough lovers that can’t seem to choose between crispy or chewy, this Detroit-style pizza has the best of both crusts. Billy & Pete’s Social takes the classic combo of sausage and pepper to new, gooey heights with a chef’s house cheese blend, caramelized onions, and fire-roasted peppers. There’s certain to be no crust left on the plate.

Hot Oil Pie from Colony Grill

35 Abendroth Ave, Port Chester; 914.934.2428

Like a trick play after the snap, Colony bucks all your expectations with its super-thin, bar-style hot oil pie. Topped with a single stinger pepper, this is the classic, but you can have hot oil drizzled over the top of any of the pizzeria’s super-caramelized-on-the-bottom options. Go on, add a little sausage.

White Clam Pie from Frank Pepe

1955 Central Ave, Yonkers; 914.961.8284

There’s no arguing that this blistered, garlicky pie is an icon. Coal-fired, it comes loaded with briny, freshly shucked clams and Romano cheese, but Pepe’s devotees know it’s twice as nice with the addition of smoky bacon.

Plain Pie from Johnny’s

30 W Lincoln Ave, Mount Vernon; 914.668.1957

A strong argument can be made for only eating Johnny’s cracker-thin, old-school, no-slices pies hot from the oven at the pizzeria. But when we can’t enjoy our pizza at Johnny’s, we’re more than happy to take a few — a hungry football fan can easily down a small on their own — of these backwards pies (cheese first, then sauce) home because no one does simple perfection quite as well.

The Woodsy from Michael’s

125 Midland Ave, Port Chester; 914.939.2241

Another bar-style Port Chester pie, Michael’s gets its deeply caramelized edges from the vintage pans seasoned by years of use. To counteract all your pre-kickoff beer consumption, let us recommend the Woodsy, generously topped with locally made Italian sausage, peppers, and mozzarella. If you’re a glutton for punishment (or just have a high spice tolerance), try the mouth-numbing spicy version.

Sicilian from Sal’s

316 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.381.2022  

If there’s one Westchester pie that rules them all, it’s this classic square from Sal’s that’s big enough to feed a crowd. The genius is in the balance — crust that’s crisp on the bottom, yet airy; plenty of fresh, acidic tomato sauce; and milky, cheese-pull-ready mozzarella — that’s kept customers coming back for decades.
