Boston Pizza

New York

What defines Boston-style pizza? It's thick-crusted and baked in a pan, yielding a crispy exterior and extra-doughy interior. This Astoria pizzeria has the New England technique down and proves to be a worthy rival to the New York-style joints that span the area. The shop gives a nod to another city, Philadelphia, in its signature cheesesteaks, which are served in split-top Italian rolls and brimming with mushrooms, peppers, and mozzarella. Much like the food, Boston Pizza's wood-paneled space is unfussy and comfortable, just like a pizza place should be.
