Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza


A food-induced OMG moment comes along rarely enough. But at a chain restaurant? Practically unthinkable. And yet, here I am, experiencing one such moment after another at Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, a Florida-based franchise founded by Long Island native Anthony Bruno.

At both Long Island branches, virtually everything is cooked in an 800-degree coal oven. Results can be magical. --Joan Reminick
