On my way back from a pizza excursion in Long Island, we stopped at Sal's Pizzeria on the way to Islip Airport. Sal's Pizza was never a place I really wanted to try before, since I never really loved the look of the shopping center. Seems like a little strip mall plaza that you would buy paneling and plumbing supplies in, and then in the corner is this pizzeria.I believe this is actually Ronkonkoma and not Islip but that is something I will have to look up before I complete the review.  *** Yup it is Ronkonkoma *****

Since we were in a rush to get me back to the airport to get to beautiful sunny Florida, we decided it was our best bet on this dreary overcast and drizzling day.

Sal's Pizza was empty, we literally were the only ones in this place during the hour we went. A nice guy with a heavy Italian accent behind the counter asked us what we wanted. I am guessing he is Sal but I didn't confirm it. I ordered 1 and 1 from him (for those non pizza experts out there, this means 1 regular slice and 1 Sicilian slice). While waiting for the slice we got into a conversation with him since he seemed curious why I was so inquisitive as to how long he had been open and what town we were in. He seemed to think I was opening a competing pizza place or something, but I assured him this wasn't the case.

When my slices arrived out of the oven I chose to have the Sicilian slice first. The Sicilian slice at Sal's Pizza in Ronkonkoma had great crisp crust that was textured and tasted decent. The cheese didn't taste of the greatest quality in my opinion and sauce was adequate, a little tasteless. The weight of the slice was impressive, and although I didn't absolutely think it was one of the best I have had, I would really enjoy going back and trying one fresh out of the oven again before ruling it out.

The regular slice was a little better than the Sicilian. It was thin, and a nice size. The slice had the perfect amount of sauce:cheese ratio that I look for. Once again, just like with the Sicilian slice, I felt like this slice could benefit from some higher quality cheese and some work to the sauce. Not that either weren't good, but they just weren't great in my opinion.

Sal's Pizzeria in Ronkonkoma, NY gets 4 out of 8 slices.

    I actually find that Sals pizza is amazing! We live the Sicilian all the time, it is by far the best I have ever had. My son lives the cheese he uses, any time we go there we buy a bit of cheese cause he just loves it so much, and he only asks for it at Sals. I think you are very misleading!

    I find that you are a bit ludicrous with your accusations localgurl. Find out facts before slandering someone reputation and business. Sals pizza by far is one of the best pizzerias I have ever been too. I must agree with Jen W, that the pizza from here is fabulous. The cheese is delicious and I actually buy sauce from there to use at home. Every slice is perfectly done, nice and crispy and the Sicilians are a delight. My kids actually ask them if they can slice them up into little squares and each bite is crunchy and delicious. We love Sals Pizza
