I guess with your reading comprehension you didn't understand that sad to see
That's what DM's are for - so threads aren't filled with postings that only have relevance to one person. I think you should brush up on the TOS before you start questioning others' reading comprehension

Just to make sure the cold cheese discussion maintains a significant level of local relevance... Little Vincent's in Huntington is known for it as well - and you could literally get it at ANY pizzeria on the planet if you asked for it, but expect them to look at you real funny.

I don't get the cold cheese thing at all. I mean personally I just don't like the taste of it - maybe because I spent many hot summer afternoons throughout high school and college in the back of pizzerias slicing that crap in 100 year old machines spitting oil and metal shards out into my face while trying to not have my fingers severed off. That cheese is also significantly different from the fresh or sliced mozzarella people would normally eat... it's specifically designed for pizza, it has a totally different taste when it's uncooked. IMO it has a kind of "soapy" aftertaste which is totally gross, you get that on sicilian slices with certain blends sometimes too - not sure why.

Also for the germophobes out there, have you ever seen the pizza guy wearing gloves while he dumps the cheese onto your pie? Even if it's some high class place and they actually do that - the guys in the back certainly aren't... and from experience those cheese graters definitely don't get cleaned that often or that well when they are cleaned. You are without a doubt eating little uncooked microscopic chunks of several month old crusted up cheese balls when you eat cold cheese pizza!!

But isn't cold cheese pizza the same thing as just eating a cold slice of pizza? Only until recently do I like left over pizza cold.

No.

Piping hot with a mound of cold cheese on top.

Yummo.

LOL...
I can appreciate that.
I grew up real close to L&B and I can't tell you how many times I've been in there over the years.

Playing ball with some buddies on a great day, when you're done...run over to L&B.

Lousy rainy day with nothing to do...run over to L&B

Many moons ago there were a bunch of clubs in the area, you'd go out and you'd get hungry...run over to L&B...midnight, 1:00 AM no matter, there was still a line out front.

For me L&B is not only great food, but plenty of great memories too.

I've tried all the rest , now here's the best:

1) COLLOSEO'S. I've been a customer there for 30 years , and for that long they've been consistently consistent. Never a bad pizza . Not once. Their sauce is thick , hearty , and really tasty , not overly spicey , but not bland either. They don't skimp on the cheese either.
They make a stuffed pizza that is fantastic !! I highly recommend the calzones also.

The best pizza I've ever had.

2 ) LITTLE VINCENT'S. No Sicilian pies , just round , but really good , although they're wafer thin.
The veal parmesan heros are very good too. REAL veal , not the processed stuff like some places use. Open till , something like , 4 a.m.

Both places are VERY clean and , since both places are always hopping , the pizza is always fresh. I get sick when I walk into a pizza place that has pies , prepared hours earlier , laying around waiting to be reheated while flies crawl all over them. I'm one of those rare people who don't think of flies eggs as a pizza topping.
