Food & Drink > Pizza

Rochester has way too many pizza places to list here. Your best bet is to check the Yellow Pages for detailed listings and coupons. When you call to order, don’t be shy: Ask if they make New York-style (thin and crispy) or a lighter, breadier crust. We have plenty of both here. Single local shops make some of the best pizza around, but local chains have established a neighborhood presence—Pontillo’s Pizzeria, Mark’s Pizzeria and Salvatore’s Pizza, to name a few. If you would rather go with a tried-and-true chain, you’ll find Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza, Papa John’s Pizza and Pizzeria Uno.
