When I moved from Brooklyn to Albany a while ago I was very disappointed with the pizza in the area. My need for good pizza led me to this forum and then on to make my own. I recently discovered De Fazio's Pizzeria in Troy and recommend it highly. It's a small place with a wood fired oven and no slices. They do mostly take out with a few small tables. The restaurant also has homemade pastas and sauces that are available for purchase in their Italian grocery next door.
