4. A Hidden Pizza Parlor and a Fordham Favorite

Pugsley Pizza, hidden behind a gas station along E. 191st Street, is described by the current owner’s father as a “little piece of a heaven on Earth.” This family-run pizza oasis has been a long-time Fordham favorite. For catering for events, clubs, meetings, or sporting events, Pugsley Pizza is a natural go-to.

Pugsley Pizza is renowned by Bronx residents for its classic Penne a la Vodka pizza slice. Stop by at midnight on a Saturday night, and you will be waiting in line for about twenty minutes as the smell of freshly oven-baked pizza wafts through the kitchen and out the door.
