Lee’s Tavern is a Staten Island sports bar institution with excellent, crackery thin crust pizza. The pies here have slightly charred bottoms and you could break the crust bubbles with a single little tap. Get the clam pizza (or do half and half with the cheese or pepperoni pie). The cheese, clams, and briny sauce have the exact right level of saltiness, with crust so thin that you’ll feel okay eating four slices while watching the end of a Yankees game. And then you’ll ask yourself if that was really necessary. The answer is yes, especially because you’re now an accidental Yankees fan.
