A look at pizzerias around the U.S.
Seppe Pizza Bar | Staten Island, New York
Seppe is the new kid on the island opened late last year by brother Joe and John Iovino. The bright corner space is on Staten Island’s North Shore. Its menu features house-made ingredients. Pizzas include Shroom Thyme with cremini mushrooms, mozzarella and thyme; Pep in Your Step with jalapenos, pepperoni and hot honey; or the Olivia with olives, ricotta and spinach. Seppe’s menu also features crostini, appetizers, salads and pastas like Oven Baked Seppe Wings with garlic, herbs, hot cherry peppers and white wine; Crostini with ‘nduja and burrata; Orechiette with housemade sweet sausage and broccoli rabe; Fusilli with “broken meatballs;” and a stacked Eggplant Parm. The brothers have also put together a dream team to design innovative cocktails and desserts.
Ziggy’s Pizza | Wichita, Kansas
A neighborhood pizza and sandwich pub, Ziggy’s recently opened its third location. TripAdvisor named Ziggy’s to its “Best pizza in every State.” Pizza specials here change monthly. The latest feature proves Ziggy’s is not afraid to put mac and cheese on a pie with its Mac Attack. Its specialty pizza menu features pies like the Sanibel Islander (Canadian bacon, smoked bacon and pineapple) and White Delight (grilled chicken, smoked bacon, green pepper, onion and cream cheese). The Costanzwich also features cream cheese with roasted turkey, smoked bacon, and cheddar on a ciabatta hoagie.
Bill’s Pizza | Palm Springs, California
In a tourist town, it’s good to be a local’s favorite. Bill’s, located in its lively downtown, is just that. With nearly
30 specialty pizzas, Bill’s has something for everyone. The popular Elton John has a garlic-infused olive oil sauce, artichoke hearts, tomatoes, cooked spinach, red onions and four cheese plus feta. There’s also the Charlie Sheen with red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, smoked bacon, chorizo, meatballs, shaved Asiago and a cayenne pepper sauce.
