DeFazio's Pizza

DeFazio’s has been a staple of Troy’s dining scene since 1951, and the first thing you should know is that if you want a pizza on Saturday, you need to order it on Friday afternoon. That’s because they will almost definitely be sold out by Saturday morning. Their wood-fired pies have a uniquely thick, almost bread-like crust, plus an ample helping of cheese and some interesting toppings, like a General Tso’s Chicken option, and a specialty pie that swaps typical red sauce for bolognese. Their pasta dishes are also excellent, but the real star of the show here is the Italian Hangover Cake, which is heavy on boozy, citrusy flavors. Order it at the beginning of your meal in case they run out.
