North End Pizzeria's Big Hot Woody
By Anna Faller | April 15, 2023
North End Pizzeria of Northport is already stoking its fires for another season of slinging pies, and there’s not a soggy bottom in sight! While everything’s coming up to temperature, our go-to is the Big Hot Woody, named affectionately for their bright red ovens. This signature pie starts with house pizza dough (a script that took 20 years to hone), layered with fresh marinara, mozzarella, and Italian sausage with bacon bits. From there, the crew tops the whole shebang with roasted red peppers, jalapeños, and roasted garlic before it’s baked to thin and crispy perfection. Each bite is savory with just a hint of spice—eat your heart out, Mary Berry! Enjoy a Big Hot Woody ($26) on the patio at The Mitten Brewing Company in Northport (112 W. Nagonaba St.). Order on-site—each 12-inch pie takes about seven minutes—or reach out on their Facebook or Instagram pages @thebighotwoody.
