10. SACRAMONE'S, East Meadow

The pie: MAMA'S OLD-FASHIONED

Sacramone's makes two fine classic pies: The cheese pie is topped first with shredded mozzarella, then pureed tomatoes, then a sprinkling of Parmesan and oregano; Mama's old-fashioned is topped first with hand-crushed San Marzano tomatoes, then slices of fresh mozzarella, then fresh garlic and basil. We give the edge to Mama ($9.50, $13.95, $16.95).

Long Island's best pizza: 10 pies worth the drive

Yes, there are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of terrific local pizzerias in Nassau and Suffolk counties. I am not concerning myself with them. Instead, I am focusing on what I'll call Long Island's destination pies: great artisanal pizzas made with small-batch dough, fresh mozzarella (not "pizza cheese"), carefully chosen toppings. Here are my rankings for Long Island's top 10 pizzas. -- ERICA MARCUS erica.marcus@newsday.com
