Totonno’s- Coney Island, NY

My whirlwind May NYC Visit (self-titled “Pizza & Musicals”) included an afternoon of pizza adventures with Scott Wiener and Anna Orchard!! As amazing tour guides/hosts on my adventure, we began in Coney Island. I arrived straight from the airport, armed with my large backpack and raincoat for the weekend, we headed to our first stop, Totonno’s.

This unassuming spot has been family-owned since 1924, and we were lucky to visit during the rainy weather when it wasn’t too busy. I loved the 1/2 white garlic pizza and margherita… Flavors were awesome, the bake was just right, and it was a solid start to our day. In fact, I think it was my favorite pie of the entire day! No complaints here. And we topped it with a Nathan’s hot dog… although that may have negatively impacted my ability to keep chugging through our pizza crawl late into the day :). Enjoy photos below!

A true art form. Notice the extra long pizza peel, and the bench to anchor the peel for prepping the pie.
