May 26th, 2022 by

New Yorkers know pizza. Just look around, and you can find New York-style pizza all over the world. But what are the best local places to get the classic crust and toppings you love? We’ve put together a list of our favorite places for pizza in Westchester with mouthwatering suggestions to help you order the best pie in town.

Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana

Founded in 1925 by Frank Pepe himself, an Italian immigrant from Naples, Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana offers pizzas steeped in tradition. After opening a bakery together, Pepe’s wife, Filomena, added a little-known dish from Naples to the menu. You can still order the tomato pie with mozzarella and olive oil, the original pizza that started it all. Try another menu favorite, the white clam pizza, likely inspired by the fresh littleneck clams served as an appetizer. The veggie special also packs the good for your toppings with broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, onions, and peppers.
