These pie shops represent a variety of styles, from the Neapolitan rounds that have become a strong point across the area in recent years to a new influx of huge, foldable New York-style slices or suddenly en vogue Detroit-style squares. Here’s a wide-ranging list of where to carry out or order in. And please tip your masked driver.
