Live in South Yonkers, and have been thoroughly unimpressed with the pizza options in the area (Dom and Vinnie's on Saw Mill River Road is pretty good, but not great). Since my beloved Brooklyn (and Manhattan) is a bit of a schlep, I'm looking towards the Bronx.
Brick-oven pizza is ideal, but I'd settle for a place that serves a high-quality slice. Saw a couple of Riverdale pizzerias mentioned in the Village Voice and decided to check them out:
Salvatores of Soho (3878 Riverdale Avenue): The crust was chewy, but still thin and crisp enough. But the sauce wasn't tangy enough and the cheese was ordinary(they offered fresh mozzarella on pizza for extra $$$, I hate it when places do that, just make the pizza with the fresh stuff!)
Next up was Denise Pizza, on Knolls Crescent, near the Henry Hudson Bridge. But it's no longer there - it's been replaced by an Eckerd's, sigh... So I went around the corner to Little Italian Village Pizzeria, a hole in the wall place on Kappock Street. Decent crust, but overall pretty ordinary.
So help me out, please - any other slice joints in the Bronx woth checking out? (And yes, I will eventually make that cross-borough trek to Louie and Ernie's)
Oh, and anyone knows of any good brick-oven establishments in the borough, please feel free to share those, too.
