The vodka pie at Joe & Pats is one of the best pizzas you can eat in this city. Due to the thinness of the crust here, you probably don’t want to get more than one additional topping on any one pie, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It means you can eat more pizza, which you will inevitably want to do here. If you don’t live in Staten Island, this place alone is worth the trip.
