Since the first ever recorded pizza delivery way back in 1889, food palettes across the globe have continued to be blessed with the cheesy and saucy goodness that comes only with a pizza pie. One local pizzeria has such good food that a young boy from India who visited back in 2019 was craving it recently, and a relative visiting the area promised he'd bring him some back. Let's just say he delivered on his promise... Literally!

DeFazio's Pizza is one of the best pizza places around the Capital Region, hands down. If you take a look at their menus, it's obvious that their meals are authentic Italian food. They have two locations in the Capital Region at the moment-- one in Troy and one in Albany. Check out their menus below:
