They are not open all year, but WOW! Maybe the best pizza I have ever had, and I grew up in NYC. If you go on the weekends, you're gonna wait and might have to park far away, but it's worth the trip. I asked some of my friends, and here are their picks:
Address: 266 4th Street, Troy, NY 12180
Phone: (518) 271-111
Ask a Capital Region resident who makes the best pizza, and at least 75 percent will tell you: DeFazio's. This longtime 4th Street pizzeria is a favorite, and the line of people out the door proves it. Besides that, DeFazio's recently claimed the title of all-time champion in a local, years-long competition.
Address: 1675 U.S. Route 9, Clifton Park, NY 12065

If it is possible to find a slice of heaven in a strip mall, you'll find it at Caputo's. (That is, if heaven is fold-able and dressed with bits of basil.) Made in the style of New York City, if you are looking for a place to get a slice, this is the joint to try.
