 Talluci's Pizzeria (1249 Melville Rd., Farmingdale): The inspiration for her bacon, egg and cheese pie, says Danielle Cataffo of Talluci’s in Farmingdale, were the crowds of college students coming from Farmingdale State College across the street. “We’re right across from a college and next to a bagel place. In the morning, I’d see the kids split up because some of them wanted breakfast. So I made a breakfast pizza.” More info: 631-390-9684, tallucispizzeriamenu.com
