We like Union Pizza on Nott Street in Schenectady, right by the Hospital.

Here at RPI, Big Apple Pizza (formerly Pizza Bella) is a huge staple of any RPI student's diet.

Madison Ave Pizza in Albany.

But I love the all the great topping pizza you can find in upstate NY, e.g. BBQ chicken, Buffalo chicken, chicken bacon ranch. I've even seen mac and cheese and cheeseburger pizza here lol.

NYC metro triumphs Upstate NY when it comes to traditional cheese pizza, Sicilian pizza, and grandma pizza, but they don't really into the topping pizza which I also like. However it seems that topping pizza become more popular in NYC recently, they must have got the idea from upstate haha.

I'm not familiar with New Haven style, but would the pizza at Perecca's count? I've only had breakfast there (very good), but people rave about the bread they make in their coal-fired oven, and they do have coal-fired oven pizza on their menu.

The OP listed out what's on a New Haven style pizza. It's more than just a coal fired.

you know, we were in albany the other weekend and we went to schenectady to check out a record store (and the town in general), went back to albany, and then i was like "what was that coal-fired place again?". der! it was back in schenectady!

we tried little anthony's and defazio's while we were there, both were very good but i liked defazio's the best. they didn't have hot peppers listed as a topping but when i asked they put pickled chopped hot peppers on there and they were gooooood. it wasn't new haven style but it was excellent.

i am definitely curious to try i love ny pizza, some people swear by it and some people say it's terrible. my husband said he read online somewhere that there is more than one (in troy?) and one is good and one isn't. i dunno.
