The Port Chester Pizza Debate

By Christina Collins

Port Chester has a unique lock on one thing- pizza!

Not too long ago I was sitting at the now closed Greenwich Lobster House talking to some local PC friends and I posed the question, “Who makes the best pizza?” The debate got intense and lasted a solid hour and ended with no clear winner! I was a little disappointed because I truly wanted an answer! I thought it would help be clean out my take-out folder if I could decide whose pizza I liked the best. But I can’t. So the folder remains as full and active as ever!

For the title of ‘Best Port Chester Pizza,’ the toss up was between Frank’s Pizza, T&J, Frankie & Louie’s and Antonio’s. Many other pizzeria’s were discussed but only the above mentioned were considered ‘favorites.’

I can eat pizza all day, every day so I couldn’t be happier that I actually have the tough task of deciding where to order my pizza from every time I want it! I loved discussing this topic and found it interesting that other people also switch up their pizza place from time to time.

During the debate, some decisions were made that I thought would be fun to share!

Best overall food: T&J
Best Wedge: Tie between T&J and Frankie & Louie’s
Best specialty pizza: Franks
Best salads: Tie between Racanelli’s & Frank’s
Best house dressing: Tie between T&J and Racanelli’s
Best Calzone & Roll ups: Antonio’s

We did collectively decide on one thing- no one likes the chicken parm from Frank’s. The reason? They use thick chicken cutlets. I know most people probably wouldn’t care but this conversation took place amongst Italians and we Italians like our cutlets pounded thin! Sorry Frank’s.

My now addiction to Thermoworks thermometers started with the DOT. Having tried over versions of leave-in probe thermometers over the years I quickly learned that they don't even compare.
With flavors built around tuna season, this dish is deceivingly simple to make yet, produces an extremely sophisticated meal. A fresh, bright mixture of tomatoes & basil are mixed with briny capers that bring just enough salinity to bring to life the tuna's natural ocean flavor.
The best grilled chicken recipe is simple and foolproof! Combine boneless chicken breasts with herbs, lemon zest and garlic to perfect results every time.
