The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

In mondo pizza, where extremism in defense of flavor is no vice, strange things happen. For example: the pineapple topping. Or the salad-bowl cover-up.

When the pristine Margherita won't do, here are three fine alternatives.

Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza: Thin crust, with roasted cauliflower, olive oil, garlic, mozzarella, pecorino Romano, bread crumbs. Savory and sharp.

Emilio's: The Grandpa pie, a thick Sicilian crust layered with red onion, marinara sauce, mozzarella and, for some crunch, seasoned bread crumbs. A standard.

Satelite Pizza: The stuffed vegetable pie, with broccoli, spinach, eggplant and mozzarella. You'll be ready for whatever winter has left.


Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, is at 8063 Jericho Tpke., Woodbury, 516-367-2625; and 137 Old Country Rd., Carle Place. 516-877-7750.
