Southdown Kitchen Pizzeria has been twirling pies since Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway had their last dance in "Bonnie and Clyde" and Dustin Hoffman and Katharine Ross took their first bus ride in "The Graduate."

The very casual spot offers personal, large and extra-large pizzas; whole-wheat and gluten-free; thick and thin; red and white.

But there are a few curiosities among the traditional choices. The Hawaiian adds crushed pineapple and ham. The honey Thai: chicken, sweetness, and a shot of spice. But the one that beckons is the "chicken bacon honey Dijon." Oui, poultry and pork, with the snap of sweet mustard to heighten the theme and cut the cheese. It's pretty good, too, at $22.

For dessert, try the zeppoles. They just come with powdered sugar.

Southdown Kitchen Pizzeria, 211 Wall St., Huntington; 631-421-2323.
