Second-best Staten Island pizza New York 2006 - Larocca's
Well, first place always goes to Denino's or Joe and Pat's, but who deserves second place? I would have said Nunzio's, except I can't stand it since they moved from the beach shack to the new facility, which is sterile and off-putting. Nearby is Larocca's, which serves a wide range of pies in various styles, both ancient and modern. The upside-down Sicilian—with the cheese underneath and the sauce on top—is particularly good, and so is the Staten Island–style Sicilian, with a crust midway between Neapolitan and Sicilian in thickness. There's an Italian ice store next door if you happen to be in the mood.
